Belinsky ’20 Musical to be Performed at 5th Avenue Theatre

Belinsky ’20 Musical to be Performed at 5th Avenue Theatre

March 5, 2018 – Arden Belinsky ’20 has written the script of an original ten minute musical which will be performed at the 5th Avenue Theater’s NextFest as part of the Rising Star Project. The Rising Star Project is an annual program at the 5th Avenue Theater that allows a select group of Washington state high school students to explore careers in the professional theater with professional mentors. All aspects of Rising Star productions are run by teenagers – from actors, directors, musicians, stage managers, to the marketing team, administration and this year, playwrights, composers, and lyricists.

NextFest is the 5th Avenue Theater’s festival of new works. For three weeks professionals are teamed up to write, rework, and workshop new musicals, then present them during a week-long festival at the theater. It is a chance for writers to get feedback and see professional actors preform their work. It is also where many new shows get discovered.

There will be three community presentations of the Rising Star Project Ten Minute Musicals at the following venues. Tickets are free but attendees are encourage to register. CLICK HERE
