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.



Through the production of high-quality shows, and the offering of robust educational opportunities, Rising Star Theatre Company will continue to contribute to the rich arts and cultural history of the tris-state area, and be a valuable member of the arts in Iowa. Rising Star Theatre Company strives to provide directors, designers, musicians and actors with a safe environment to enhance their creative abilities and explore their talents, through the creation of live theatre.
