Publicity Management Internship, Starlight's Youth Theatre, Sunderland, MA

Starlight’s Youth Theatre is a non-profit that works with students grades 1-12 from all over the Valley focusing on bringing artistic theatre to the lives of children. Our efforts include age-based, fall acting classes in a variety of genres that allow our students opportunities to contribute creatively to script building, set design, and costuming. Also, our two age-based spring musicals offer younger students a lead role and older students a challenge as well as the opportunity to mentor. Our two-week summer program provides students the opportunity to be mentored by alumni of SYT while contributing to all aspects of show production, focusing on the process and self-esteem building, all under the direction of our Artistic Director, Cyn Strycharz. In the spring of 2020, Starlight will present two musicals, Beauty and the Beast Jr for grades 1-6 and Fiddler on the Roof Jr for grades 7-12. Starlight is in its twelfth year working with children through the Valley from 20 communities.
