In February 2015, The 5th Avenue Theatre main stage season will present the much-loved musical Rodgers and Hammerstein’s Carousel. In March, following the professional production, local students (ages 14-19) will work together to mount an all-student production of Carousel on the 5th Avenue stage using the same staging, props, set and costumes as the professional production.

The Rising Star Project production will be entirely student-performed, including a student cast and student orchestra, and will be run by a student technical crew under the mentorship and guidance of theater professionals.  The production will be coordinated, marketed, developed and produced by a student administrative team under the coaching of 5th Avenue Theatre staff. Students will be immersed in authentic experiences, gain an appreciation for collaboration, and will develop real-world skills used by theater professionals.
