AGES 6 – 9

July 8 – 12, 2019


Shining Stars exists to start budding performers (children ages 6 to 9) on a lifelong path of theater and art appreciation through creative group play in a fun and supportive environment.

Throughout our week-long, half-day program, Shining Stars will build not just stage sets, but confidence. They learn not only how to sing, but how to collaborate. They’ll begin to understand what it means to be a great player as well as a great arts patron. Best of all, Shining Stars have their learning showcased in the Family Finale, the culminating performance of our week!

Along their journey, your child will engage in activities aligned with our motto – Develop Your Character. Character means more than the role you play on stage; it’s also who we are off-stage. We believe that the theatre is the perfect vehicle for young children to learn and practice habits – such as attentiveness, responsibility and courtesy for others, that will serve them well as they grow both on and off-stage.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why Shining Stars at Camp Broadway?

Being at the heart of Broadway isn’t just about a location (though we’re mighty proud to run our Shining Stars programs in the center of NYC!). The true heart of Broadway is as much about the process as it is about the outcome.

What makes us different? Well, many things, but here are our Shining Stars Big Three:

  1. We only hire Broadway professionals who also have a passion for teaching and working with kids. Our specialized staff members are all working Broadway professionals who are carefully vetted, trained to work with young performers, and deep believers of our Camp Broadway mission and vision. (should be linked text to mission page)
  2. We focus on The Ensemble – not individual stars. Not every child will take center-stage as a Broadway star, but every child can be a valued member of the performing arts community. Whether your child specializes in costume design, choreography or stage production, they’ll learn to see the power of group play and cooperation as important ingredients in the recipe for success.
  3. We Develop Your Character – literally and figuratively! Just as the ensemble is important, so are the talents of every individual. Through age-appropriate self-discovery activities, such as drawing a self-portrait, Shining Stars are encouraged to think about what makes them unique – and learn to appreciate the special talents and gifts only they can bring.
