Summer Stars 2018:

Switch Upon A Star

Join us on Saturday, August 25 at 4pm and 6pm for the 16th season of APAC’s annual Summer Stars program, featuring Queens residents aged 8 – 13!

Switch Upon a Star takes us to 1952 Manhattan and the glitzy world of showbiz! Featuring a cast of thirty-two young performers (our 2018 Summer Stars), this original musical comedy shows us that joy can triumph over jealousy and reminds us that community must always come before competition.

Burce, Amaya Chase-Luthra, Evangeline Comeau-Kirschner, Destiny Costa, Sofia Crino, Daniella DiSanti, Moon Emigli, Lamar Francis, Megan Golemi, Nora Gurpinar, Lyla Kondel, Nora Lando, Marilyn Mahoney, Ava-Marie Mann, Mia Mann, Julia Mechner, Nathalia Mendoza, Marielle Mier, Aria Montierde, Kila Nunez, Claire O’Sullivan, Sophia Perez, Alessandra Poso, Hailey Schaaff, Mackenzie Schaaff, Alesandra Schiro, Clarisse Teves, Olivia Viruet
