Rochester's premier performing arts youth camp, Summer Stars, is a three-week intensive Broadway summer day-camp for students grade 5-12, held on stage at the Auditorium Theatre from 8:30AM - 5:00PM. The camp is taught by Broadway professionals from New York City and talented college interns majoring in performing arts. Summer Stars is presented by the Rochester Broadway Theatre League (RBTL.
The curriculum is organized by RBTL's Director of Education and Outreach, Bob Sagan, and Nikki Snelson, Artistic Director. Through rehearsals and performances, campers develop their talents and have the opportunity to grow, to learn and to explore new ideas. The camp focuses on providing quality experiences that enrich and inspire students in areas of acting, dancing and singing. The camp culminates in a Gala Showcase performance at the end of the three weeks, where students demonstrate what they have learned.
The Summer Stars mission is to provide an enriching, non-competitive environment in which children can further develop an appreciation for the performing arts whether they are novices or seasoned veterans. Activities are designed to develop life skills: to teach, to encourage, to build self-confidence, to further self-esteem and to become a responsible member of a team.
Summer Stars Nine will take place July 6-24, 2015, with the Gala Showcase Performance on July 24th. General Admission tickets will be available at RBTL's Auditorium Theatre Box Office.

provide financial support to young people who would not otherwise have
the resources to participate. Recommendations for scholarships are made
by a committee that consists of the Administrative Staff for Summer
Stars and members selected from the RBTL Education Committee. The
committee bases its recommendations on the qualifications and criteria
as presented in the application. Students must demonstrate financial
need based on the scholarship application. Check back for a 2015 Scholarship Application.
