Celebrate Diversity with Bright Star!

Bring awareness to your classroom with one of our newest productions for this season, Dreaming of America! The American story is the story of people who dreamed of a new home, one of migrants and immigrants who faced tremendous difficulty along the way. Share these incredible stories with your students by bringing in a Bright Star Assembly this fall!

Lessons & Laughter–Our Specialty!

What is more fun than laughter? Nothing! At Bright Star, our mission is letting young people learn important lessons and encouraging them have a great time while doing so. Your students will walk away from our shows filled with knowledge & joy every time. We are very passionate about what we do and we want to share that with you.
Want us to bring some laughter to you and your school, library, theatre or town? Give us a call or send us an email! If you mention this blog post, we’ll even give you $100 off if you book a new show that takes place between now and May 31st!
We can’t wait to watch your audience roll with laughter!😂

QUICK! Check Your Mailbox!

Get ready! Our brochures will be hitting your mailboxes starting on Monday and we couldn’t be more excited!

The only catch is that our shows are selling out fast, so you had better find that show you can’t wait to see and get it on our books pronto.

Some of our most popular shows this fall are USA to Z (a political gameshow), Bullysaurus Rex (an anti-bullying dinosaur adventure) and Holiday Songs: Music Around the World (a celebration through music of holidays around the globe). And these are just 3 of 56 fabulous programs that your young audience can’t wait to see!

So go grab yourself a mocha latte, find a comfy seat and lose yourself in our brochure highlighting all of your favorites. What are you waiting for?!? ☕️✏️😀

Time to Find the Perfect School Assembly

This is an exciting time of year at Bright Star.  We’re gearing up for our 2016-2017 season of professional, touring productions and this year we have 50 amazing plays to plan for, including 7 brand new shows: Alice in WonderlandBullysaurus RexOne Noble NightUSA to Z Holiday Songs: Music Around the WorldBuilding Stories and Gus Goes Green: A STEM Adventure! That’s a lot of costumes, props and sets!  We cannot wait to finish up our T-Rex Costume, our Cheshire cat and our Patriotic Prizes for USA to Z, which is a game-show-themed program about our government and elections (just in time for the big election in 2016)!

With the school year wrapping up, administrators and teachers have a chance to plan their assemblies for the following year. This means that we have a chance to reconnect with some of our favorite sponsors from all across the country–and beyond. Just today, we’ve had the joyful opportunity of speaking with school sponsors in North and South Carolina, New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Massachusetts, Tennessee and even Germany! There have been many smiles and great conversations about which of our 45-minute plays will best suit their school’s needs. Some of the sponsors we’ve spoken to today have been choosing Bright Star shows every year for several years and we’ve received so much positive feedback about the quality of our performances and how their students excitedly await another visit from Bright Star actors. Some have even been taking advantage of our special rate for bringing in 4 different assemblies throughout the year for $2500 ($625 per assembly). It is truly a joy to help schools find the perfect program for every occasion; whether it’s an anti-bullying show to kick off the school year, a holiday celebration, a Black History program, a literary classic or a STEM show.

We look forward to hearing from even more of our loyal sponsors and, of course, from schools who are bringing in their first Bright Star play. It’s going to be another great year of bringing professional theatre to young audiences everywhere!
