"We have hosted summer camps since 1993 in an effort to carry out our mission to encourage young peo- ple's knowledge of, interest in and participation in the theatrical per- forming arts," said Tammy Lee, stu- dio manager. She said at first it was through summer theater arts production, which consisted of four weeks of rehearsals that culminated in full- scale productions. In 1995, it changed and was renamed STARS. It included intensive workshops taught by the- atrical professionals, who shared var- ious aspects of technical theater. The program was changed again in 2005. "Joan Stafford and Beth Bouchard were two of the very talented individ- uals whose love for theater and for StageStruck pumped passion and drive into this summer program," Ms. Lee said. "The two-week programs focus on musical theater complete with song, script and choreography, featuring well-know, as well as new, tunes and characters through decades stretching back to the 1960s and 1970s."
