Angels in the Shining Stars program spend an hour each week working toward a two-act professional production, then take part in the weekly workshops and group activities, along with Super Stars participants. During the first hour, participants focus on the show’s blocking, choreography, solo and group songs, character work, and more. All AoS staff work together to nurture and support Angels in reaching individual potential and collective success. Social, emotional, and interpersonal skills are developed in the context of working together toward a professional show.
Later in the season, Angels shift to two-hour weekly rehearsals without small-group workshops. An intensive Tech Week just prior to the production dates requires four nights of rehearsals followed by three days of shows.
