The La Crosse Community Theater is back on stage and also has new educational offerings for the 2021-2022 school year. The program is part of their Star Academy program, which they launched this summer.

The new program is called Star Academy: School Year Edition. This program offers 8 in-person, full-day sessions based around the La Crosse School District’s Calendar when teachers either have in-services or professional development days. We caught up with LCT’s Director of Outreach and Education, Alex Attardo, to get all the details:

Each of the 8 days is unique, so students will always be learning something new when they step through the doors at LCT.  Designed for both new and experienced youth performers, this program builds confidence, cultivates empathy, and expands creativity through theatrical training. LCT’s Star Academy: School Year Edition provides children with diverse and meaningful theatre experiences throughout the 2021-2022 school year. These eight different classes are designed for children to explore theatre’s art, magic, and creation. Classes provide participants with ways to learn excellent skills, make new friends, and have a lot of fun.

Students can attend one or all sessions but space is limited! To register, call the Box Office, 608-784-9292, or CLICK HERE.
