In early December, the 2016/17 Rising Star Project cohort came together for the first time. This orientation was a chance for the teens to meet and to begin learning what it takes to put up a musical at The 5th.

Orientation included a tour of the historic venue where the students will be working and learning in the coming months. Continue reading “Rising Star Project Orientation: Students From Across the State Gather!”
