Rising Stars

The Rising Stars program teaches and empowers young people through learning and performing. Kids build confidence and skills they can access for the rest of their lives. For the 2022-2023 Lake Travis Music Theatre Rising Stars season, Director Barbara Graham and Assistant Director Lisa Weaver will be evaluating all students ahead of the first class. Evaluations will be used to place students in the proper class and to cast Willy Wonka Jr.

Evaluation Requirements

We are using the term “evaluation” rather than audition because all students will be given the opportunity to join a class and perform.  There will be no cuts, all students who want to participate in Rising Stars will have the opportunity to do so.

 

Evaluations will be held on Sunday August 21st (1pm – 4pm) and Saturday August 27th (1:30pm - 5:30pm) at Rolling Hills Community Church.  (Sign up for an evaluation here.) During the evaluation, students may be asked to read lines, sing (Happy Birthday is great, or they can bring a song they have prepared), and/or learn and demonstrate simple dance moves.  This is meant to be a way for Mrs. Barbara and Mrs. Lisa to meet and learn about the students and is not intended to be high pressure.  Students are not required to prepare anything in advance and prior experience is not required.
