Support Tomorrow's Rising Stars (ST*RS) is a collective of graduating BFA and MFA students from all departments within The Theatre School at DePaul University, who seek to establish a foundation for their transition and launch into their artistic careers. Typically, each spring, the graduating class is given the opportunity to showcase their talents to theatre professionals (i.e. talent agents, casting directors, artistic directors, technical directors, networking festivals, etc.) in New York, Los Angeles, and right at home in Chicago. Due to COVID-19, there is a high possibility that we will not partake in this spring's traveling and instead offer up a digital showcase to all markets that are open to seeing us share our gifts.
Funds raised by ST*RS are used to offset the costs of headshots, portfolios, plane tickets, personal equipment, and anything else that might be needed to jump-start a career in the arts. By donating to ST*RS, you will, in turn, become a participant in a group of individuals who are setting out to cultivate new artistic and theatrical communities across the globe, as well as gain some footing as we step into an extremely uncertain professional landscape due to our public health crisis.
We thank you for your consideration, and for your support of tomorrow’s rising stars! Stay safe and breathe easy!
