Are you a Rising Star?

Sunset Playhouse is heading in to our 56th season of providing quality entertainment. What many people don’t know is that Sunset is also home to three professional series, including Musical Mainstage.  Six times a year, these popular concerts revolve around a theme—everything from the Beatles to Gershwin—and feature four professional singers, several accomplished musicians, and one “Rising Star”, a promising high school singer, in a 90-minute production.

Musical MainStage will hold auditions for next season’s performers on Saturday, April 18th from 9:00-3:00. In addition to our adult singers, we are looking for our next Rising Stars. The commitment for our Rising Stars is very limited—only four rehearsals, two performance days—and we use music stands so even memorization of the pieces isn’t a big issue. That means the time away from school work and activities is minimal. There are six concerts each season so we’ll be selecting six Rising Stars. In the past, several of our students have also been awarded small college scholarships after their Sunset participation.  If you will be in high school during 2015-16, why not audition to be one of the Rising Stars?

We think this is a wonderful opportunity for young people to work alongside experienced performers in a professional environment.
