AN UPLIFTING THEATRICAL JOURNEY WITH OUR SUMMER YOUTH CONSERVATORY
Featuring the Grammy-nominated score by Steve Martin and Edie Brickell, Broadway's Bright Star tells a sweeping tale of love and redemption set against the rich backdrop of the American South in the 1920s and '40s. Inspired by a real event, set in many familiar locations in North Carolina, and propelled by an ensemble of onstage musicians and dancers, the story unfolds as a rich tapestry of deep emotion, beautiful melodies, and powerfully moving performances. It's a theatrical experience as refreshingly genuine as it is daringly hopeful.
Bright Star is the culmination of PlayMakers' Summer Youth Conservatory, a six-week practicum for high school students—both on stage and behind the scenes—combining top-notch teaching with unparalleled practical experience. Students work with professional directors, choreographers, musical directors, and theatre technicians to mount a professional quality production for all to enjoy.
