Emerging Artist Initiative

HSRT is excited to announce a new initiative for high school students.

This audition-based, tuition-based company of young people will present Cinderella, a new twist on a favorite story created by Artistic Director Lenny Banovez, with music by Jessica McIlquham. Directed by Benjamin Lohrberg, students will be immersed in a professional theatre experience and will have professional director, designers and actors to guide them through the production process. Students who are cast will receive masterclass, workshop and free conservatory sessions.
