THE START of RISING STARS CLASSES WILL BE POSTPONED FOR AT LEAST ONE WEEK.
NO CLASSES THIS SATURDAY the 21st. Classes are still filled to capacity. We are working out a new schedule and reevaluating how to best proceed for the health and safety of all our students. I will keep registered students informed via email and on the Rising Stars Facebook page (Capitol Theatre Rising Stars) as soon as I have the information myself. I hope to see all of our students again as soon as possible.. In the meantime, wash your hands, take care of yourselves, and stay healthy!
2020 RISING STARS SUMMER SESSION IS OPEN!!!
Registration for 2020 Rising Stars Session is now open! REGISTRATION FORM IS AT THE BOTTOM OF PAGE.
Rising Stars is a fun learning experience that teaches stage and life skills through games and activities, individual coaching, and actual performances on the Capitol Stage. The program focuses on developing the students’ own creativity, building self-confidence, improving reading comprehension and speaking ability, accepting responsibility, and teamwork.
Students will learn stage movement, character development, how to audition, and a whole lot more! Skills developed will better prepare students to compete for roles in school plays and other local stage productions, as well as interacting with confidence during pageants, interviews for college or jobs, and in everyday dealings with teachers and peers.
Classes are taught by professional actor and director Janet Foote. Mrs. Foote also taught theatre arts at the high school level and has conducted seminars and workshops for Fibonacci STEAM, BOCES, local theater groups, Girl Scouts, and at area schools.
Any Questions about the Rising Stars program or arrangements for private lessons may be addressed to Janet Foote at [email protected]
