Summer Stage

Summer Stage Camp

Summer Stage, (formerly Broadway on the Hudson) is the ultimate Theater Camp experience. Rising Stars began Summer Stage with the aim of creating the “Whole Artist” in a fun, innovative and professional environment. Summer Stage gives the opportunity for young artists to explore the world of theater everyday. Campers work with professionals on a daily basis in Acting, Shakespeare, Stage Combat, Voice, Dance, Photographyand even more.Artists (campers) spend an entire summer immersed in the Arts and surrounded by a nurturing environment. In addition to daily workshops, campers at Summer Stage also work on a full scale musical, attend NY Theater and receive Master Classes from Industry professionals.

The Summer Stage team includes our own Rising Star Teens and alumni serving as counselors, Musical Directors and Choreographers, allowing our young adults to transition into being role models for our campers.

Summer Stage Performances – 2012

ArtsFest – Entire Camp!

We began ArtsFest last summer and it was an instant hit! ArtsFest is a chance for parents and campers to gather in our theater for one evening, while the campers and Teaching Artists share what they have been creating together all summer. Whether it be Shakespeare, Dance or Improv it is sure to be a night of FUN and enlightenment, as parents discover their child’s ability.
