our mission

The mission of the Rising Star Theatre Company is to provide quality productions, meaningful production experiences, and varied theatre study opportunities for Dubuque and the surrounding tri-state communities.



The Summer Internship Program is a training program for college age aspiring arts administrators and theatre production practitioners. Participants are given practical learning experiences, independent and collective projects, and work as entry-level staff persons in the company's administrative and production departments. The talented RSTC staff members, who have numerous years of professional and academic theatre experiences, mentor interns in their desired areas of study. Internships typically run from late May to early August, with some flexibility. A stipend is provided.

RSTC is currently accepting applications for our 2024 Summer Internship Program. Application deadline is May1, 2022. Please submit a cover letter and resume to info@risingstartheatrecompany.com
