The Rising Stars Gala is sure to be THE EVENT of the summer! Join us for a night celebrating the arts featuring talented young performers and organizations from across the tristate area. The night will start off with an open-mic cocktail hour featuring young guest performers and networking opportunities with local arts organizations and industry professionals. At 7 PM, take your seat and get ready for a stellar review-style show filled with big Broadway hits and guest performances like you’ve never seen before!
This show will spotlight our talented Gala cast made up of 27 young artists ages 13-20 as well as feature exclusive performances by local organizations, guest artists, and casts of previous shows! Enjoy full production numbers with high-energy choreography, powerful solos, and everything in between! During the show, we will be handing out several scholarships presented by local theaters & dance studios as well as a cash scholarship of our own! We hope to see you on August 20th at the Levoy!
The mission of the South Jersey Youth Arts Association is to transform lives by providing scholarship & performance opportunities while advocating for local programs that offer further education in the arts. We strive to inspire change while creating a safe, inclusive, and equitable space for young artists to cultivate their craft and uplift & engage the community while doing so.
