The Award-winning Riverdale Rising Stars teen program is the cornerstone for all things theatrical at the Riverdale Y: Riverdale Rising Stars, Riverdale Rising Stars Jr. and Riverdale Rep. All three theater companies continue to bring quality productions to the Bronx and beyond.
Riverdale Rising Stars
is our award-winning teen program. The teen program is open to those who are age 12 and in 7th grade through age 18, High School Seniors. Participation is by audition only. Auditions are held twice a year. The teens perform two Musicals throughout the regular season and a Summer Stock show each summer, which is open to current Rising Stars and Alumni who are still in College. In addition to our regular season, our Rising Stars will be touring a theatrical piece called, BANG, BANG YOU’RE DEAD – a moving theatrical play about the tragic mass gun shootings that have been all too prevalent in our society.
Jr. Rising Stars
is our award winning Junior program. RRS Jr. is open to children ages 5 to 6. Participation is by audition only. We typically have two casts of each Jr. Rising Stars show. Auditions are held twice a year. The Jr’s perform two musicals per season. During our 2016-17 Season we will be dividing the Jr’s into two groups. Our children who are ages 7-9 will perform one show and our children ages 9-11 will perform another. Each group will present their show for 3 performances.
Show dates this year are scheduled for January 7-15 and May 18-28.
