ASU Gammage recently launched the Rising Star Program to recognize high school students aspiring to be the next stars who will grace the ASU Gammage stage.

The 24 students who were selected through an application process will be honored at 5:30 p.m., Jan. 14, at a special dinner reception. They will also receive two tickets to see "Joseph and the Amazing Technicolor Dreamcoat," and have the chance to attend a special talkback and Q&A with cast members to help inspire and teach them the tools needed to pursue a career as a performer.

“ASU Gammage's mission is 'Connecting Communities,' and what better way than connecting future stars with current Broadway performers," said Colleen Jennings-Roggensack, executive director at ASU Gammage. "We are so proud of these students, and there is no doubt in my mind if they keep reaching for the stars they very well may grace our stage one day.”

The Rising Stars students were selected through an application process to attend a Broadway performance, a post-show talkback about “getting started” in the business, and a pre-show dinner with other special guests.
