STAGE TUBE: Starlight Theatre's STARS of Tomorrow Parody 'Cups (When I'm Gone)'
Starlight Theatre's performance group, The Starlight STARS of Tomorrow, created a musical twist on a Pitch Perfect favorite. The group spent several afternoons filming their version of the song 'Cups', performed by Anna Kendrick in the film Pitch Perfect. This new version features lyrics about ever Kansas Citians beloved outdoor theatre, Starlight Theatre. Click below to watch the video!
The Starlight STARS of Tomorrow is a musical theatre training and performance program for 7th through 12th grade students. Those selected to participate in the prgram enjoy an intensive study in acting, dance and voice. The STARS also participate in workshops led by Broadway cast members involved in Starlight's summer seasons! To top it all off, students create their own musical theatre performance piece, which they perform throughout the summer on Starlight Theatre's Spotlight Stage prior to Broadway performances.
Presenting Broadway entertainment since 1951, the non-profit Starlight Theatre Association is Kansas
City's oldest and largest performing arts organization. The Association operates, programs and
maintains the largest stage in the United States, as well as the 16-acre Starlight Theatre complex.
