The Rising Star Project Leadership Workshop

The Rising Star Project production of How to Succeed in Business Without Really Trying goes up in March, but this season’s student team is already gearing up for the challenge!  The second annual Rising Star Project Leadership Workshop took place the theater last Saturday.  It was an opportunity for this season’s students to meet, begin building skills for the future, and talk leadership with Les Biller—local philanthropist and member of The 5th Avenue Theatre Board of Directors.

Here are a few highlights:
