STAR Intensive NKU

Stars That Are Rising

What is the STAR Intensive NKU program?

Our STAR Intensive NKU program (formerly the STAR Program) is a four-week training program for students, ages 9-18. Students are accepted by audition only and will be taught by experts in the various disciplines of Musical Theatre on the campus of Northern Kentucky University, from 10 AM to 4 PM each weekday.

Selected from STAR Intensive NKU, the STAR Cabaret is a group of 12-14 students who participate in year-round training and coaching.  Throughout the year, participants will mentor with our expert teaching staff to be well-rounded musical theatre artists, perform for local events, and will culminate in a trip to New York, Chicago, or LA to perform a showcase for directors, agents, and casting experts.

STAR Intensive NKU:  July 5 – July 31, 2016 at Northern Kentucky University

Tuition: $600

Security deposit of $150 due upon acceptance into the program.  Payment plans and scholarships are available.

Auditions for both the 2016 STAR Intensive NKU and STAR Camp Red Bank programs will be held February 26 and 27.
