Brite Stars

Join our Brite Stars Cast (Ages 8 and up) as we tell the story of Moana!

With current state of COVID-19 and social-distancing – we will do all we can to make this a live on-stage experience. We have just come off a very successful season with Seussical Jr, and were able to pivot and provide a movie/soundtrack of the show – all done from home. We are now building on that skill set within the academy!

Also – based on economic strain of COVID-19 – we must have at least 25 children sign up for this season to get off the ground. Tell your friends! The more the merrier!

If you enroll, you must comply with CDC guidelines, as we navigate through the season. Classes will be held online through Zoom if unable to meet in person, until such time as we can gather.

Auditioning Workshops, Parent Meeting, Audition and Callback dates TBD.

Once auditions have begun, there will be no refunds.
