The Weather May Be Turning Colder But We’re Already Planning for SUMMER!

Theatre is one of the best activities that students can do to build important language skills like speaking, listening and language fluency. Theatre builds creativity, communication, collaboration and critical thinking skills while helping students to practice empathy, social awareness and resilience.
Best of all – Bright Star shows, workshops, residencies and camps make a great complement to whatever you have planned for your students this summer. Using techniques and skills taught by our amazing teaching artists, your students will build their own sketch show based on their interest and the camp themes.

We are available this summer across the country to help your school, library or performing arts organization serve students and families. Camps and residencies can be designed to fit your schedule. Just give us a call to start planning your program!

You provide the space and campers – We provide the teaching artists and curriculum.
5 Day Camp Pricing Starts at $4995!

Success in Europe

The team is back together again and with amazing news from their travels in Europe. The 58th Annual European PTA Conference was a great success. We made new friends with many of the American Schools based in Germany, Italy, Sicily, Spain and more!  Erin and Reeni performed their version of Aesop’s Fables to a packed out house who by the end was quoted as saying, “We have never seen anything like this. You all were so good! We can’t wait to bring you in!” The entire weekend was fun, encouraging and informative.  Check out the Bright Star Video from our performance and for more information about our international touring opportunities, please visit our website here, //

Our Touring Theatre Goes International

Tomorrow, Bright Star Touring Theatre is heading overseas with two of their team, Erin Schmidt and Reeni Dowd. Their destination, Southern Germany to meet new sponsors at the 58th Annual European PTA Conference taking place in Garmish-Partenkirchen, from May 19th-22nd, 2016. “We have been traveling overseas to Moscow, Russia for the last three years with amazing programs and educational theatre camps for the students there. We couldn’t be more excited to travel to this conference in Germany and reach out to more American Schools with our programs” says founder of Bright Star, David Ostergaard. “Erin and Reeni will not only be exhibiting at the conference but they will also be performing one of our most popular plays, Aesop’s Fables. We love performing at conferences because it really shows the attendees how well we interact with audiences and how fun 45-minutes of fables can be!” We wish Erin and Reeni safe travels and best wishes on this exciting new adventure in Bavaria.

Summer Theatre Camps Booking Mania!

We love a LOT of things about our work.  But one thing we especially love is teaching theatre to the next generation!  Our Summer Theatre Camps are designed so that your organization can bring live theatre into the lives of 30-40 students over the course of a week.

Our camps are completely customizable–but typically we end each week with a 100% student generated and created performance.

In our format students get to try their hand at writing scripts, directing, acting, performing, designing, and so much more.  Packed with theatre games your students will end the week with a fundamental understanding of theatre, it’s terminology and what it’s like to create a show.

Our format has been a huge hit in libraries, military bases, schools, community groups and more.  It’s why we even get to go work with the American Schools in Russia!

Our camps are priced so that you can even make a profit. Connect with us today to learn more.
