Search for summer stars open

Are you the next rising star?

Well, you’ll have your chance to prove it.

The application period for the Hawaii Children’s Theatre’s Summer Stars 2015 is open and this year’s show is Disney’s “Alice in Wonderland, Jr.”

The program offers workshops for the aspiring actors to hone their stage skills. 

“We truly believe each child is a star, and when given the opportunity, any child can shine,” the nonprofit’s motto states.

The workshops train the kids to become stage-savvy performers ready to produce for some primetime shows.

The AM program will be for ages 8-16, with a special group for keiki ages 5 to 7. The classes will run from 8 a.m. to noon June 15 to July 16 at the Puhi Theatrical Warehouse. The gala performance will take place July 16 at Kauai Community College Performing Arts Center.

The PM production of “Alice in Wonderland, Jr.” will be from 1 p.m. to 5 p.m. June 15 to July 17. It’s for youth ages 8 to 16, also at the Puhi Theatrical Warehouse.

The show performance will be at 7 p.m. Friday and Saturday July 17-18 and 4 p.m. Sunday at KCC.

Students are required to have previously attended the AM workshops, be enrolled, or have participated in a previous HCT program. Students enrolled in full day program should bring their own lunch for a supervised break from noon to 1 p.m.

The AM workshop costs $375 fee. The PM production costs $395 fee.

Registration requires a deposit of $150.
