In 2003, Music Theatre Wichita created a new performing group for teenagers with the intent to cultivate local talent and create an environment for youth to grow artistically. The group became an instant sensation, and 2023 will mark the 20th anniversary of this awe-inspiring collection of performers. Since 2014, The Trust Company of Kansas has supported the Rising Stars Youth Ensemble (formerly known as Teen Choir) allowing hundreds of local teens to explore many facets of musical theatre. Each summer, the ensemble learns music and staging for 5 unique presentations and delivers over 35 concerts. In 2014 the ensemble was honored by Wichita’s Arts Council for outstanding work. The Trust Company of Kansas Rising Stars Youth Ensemble is a strong and supportive network of young people who enjoy coming together to make music and perform. Join us before a summer production performance and experience a youth performance that’s definitely Broadway and uniquely Wichita.
