The Studio

This fall all StarStruck classes will be 100% ONLINE. Since we will not be able to safely have a winter MainStage musical, we are trying to accommodate as many students as possible. In anticipation of this, we are excited to expand our START program! In addition to our regular offerings (which are open to all students ages 8-18), we are thrilled to offer an audition-based theatrical conservatory for experienced students ages 10 to high school.
