What is the STAR Intensive NKU program? Our STAR Intensive NKU program (formerly the STAR Program) is a four-week training program for students, ages 9-18. Students are accepted by audition only and will be taught by experts in the various disciplines of Musical Theatre on the campus of Northern Kentucky University, from 10 AM to 4 PM each weekday. Selected from STAR Intensive NKU, the STAR Cabaret is a group of 12-14 students who participate in year-round training and coaching. Throughout the year, participants will mentor with our expert teaching staff to be well-rounded musical theatre artists, perform for local events, and will culminate in a trip to New York, Chicago, or LA to perform a showcase for directors, agents, and casting experts.
