Riverdale Rising Stars Summer Stage Camp


Ages 6 to 14 years


Get in on the act with Riverdale’s premier theatre camp experience! Rising Stars Summer Stage gives campers (or, as we call them, Young Artists) a fun, supportive environment where children ages 6 to 14 can nurture their creative impulses while taking an active role in performing and designing a full-scale musical theatre production.

Over the course of six weeks, industry professionals from the worlds of Broadway, Off-Broadway, TV and beyond lead the Young Artists in master classes and daily interactive workshops in Acting, Singing, Dancing, Shakespeare, Stage Combat, Photography, Design, and more, along with field trips to a Broadway show and beautiful nearby Wave Hill.

Along with the talented adults on our staff, teenagers from our renowned Rising Stars program, many of whom were Summer Stage participants themselves, serve as mentors and counselors, instilling in the Young Artists a lifelong love of theatre.

As the Young artists explore new friendships and artistic possibilities through an unforgettable summer at Rising Stars Summer Stage, they also uncover valuable lessons about teamwork, collaboration, and the art of putting on a show.
