International Tours

We will come to you. Literally. It doesn’t matter where you are or how big or small your space is we embody the words touring theatre, perhaps more than any other company in the country.  For three years, Bright Star has had the honor and privilege of working with the State Department to serve the Anglo American Schools of Russia with our theatre. We’ve answered emails to visit Bahrain; we’re gearing up to perform at the European PTA and we’ve even been invited to bring shows to Germany!Our International endeavors are far more affordable than what you might think.  Typically we offer performances followed by in-classroom visits and/or work with a select group of students (or a class) for a week or two to develop an original production for their classmates, friends, families or invited guests.We invite you to connect with us with your thoughts and ideas or let us offer you our suggestions. Let’s bring professional American theatre to your young audiences–wherever they may be!Want to see more about what a visit with us is like?

National Park Service
We are so thrilled to have the opportunity to serve the National Park Service this season as part of their centennial celebrations! We’ve partnered with the Midwest NPS to provide an original show that celebrates Black History in the parks and monuments of this region. The program is called ‘Lift Every Voice: The Black Experience in the Heartland.’ Touring throughout 2016, this empowering and accessible show brings to life a number of incredible Americans from Col. Charles Young and Dred Scott to Bass Reeves and even celebrates those Americans that helped bring about Brown Vs. Board of Education and integrate Little Rock’s Central High School.

We invite you to join in the National Park’s 100th anniversary celebrations and attend this show at a park near you!

Here’s a clip of the production: Lift Every Voice: The Black Experience in the Heartland Promo
