The 5th Avenue Theatre's Rising Star Project offers students the chance to develop professional skills through the process of producing and performing a musical on The 5th Avenue Theatre mainstage.
Beyond being entirely student performed, the 2018/19 Rising Star Project production of West Side Story will be run by a student technical crew and supported by a team of students who have taken on roles in the marketing, development, producing, creative, and casting departments. All participants are trained and mentored by dedicated theater professionals at The 5th Avenue Theatre.
Revel in the transcendent majesty of storytelling at its finest. The 5th Avenue Theatre is calling on the full breadth and depth of its artistic resources to stage an unforgettable production of West Side Story. This is musical theater as only The 5th can do it: with a cast of 40 of the finest performers ever to grace our stage, a 25-piece orchestra and the highest levels of talent and artistic dedication bar none. The dancing will bring you to the edge of your seat; the music will resonate deep in your soul; the story will lift you to the heights of passion. Do not miss this show!
