Providing Life Skills to Youth through Musical Theatre

About the Project

"Team of Stars taught me to be okay with myself, and to be confident in who I am because it shows everyone else that it’s okay to be yourself."  That's it in a nutshell. 

For ten years, the Team of Stars afterschool and summer camp programs have built self-confidence and respect for others by helping kids devise and perform original musical theatre productions in a safe, supportive and fun environment.  In partnership with Montgomery County's Excel Beyond the Bell (EBB) program, Project Change offers Team of Stars at middle and elementary schools during the year and at a 5-week summer day camp. 

With the advent of Covid-19, schools are cancelled and Team of Stars has drawn the curtain until the schools reopen.  It's hard on the kids, but it's also hard on our teaching artists who make it all possible. 

Please help us hold on to our wonderful instructors through the social distancing period - we don't want to lose them, but they need to eat and pay rent.  Your gift today will be matched by the Art and Humanities Council of Montgomery County - but only til June 30, 2020.   

This $5,000 will pay for four part time teaching artists for two months. Join the team and become a Star!
