Our philosophy brings the strategies required in the learning
of the arts to be applied to everyday life.
helps us think on our feet.
aids us in understanding what is necessary to achieve the highest level of any goal.
massages the brain and keeps us alert.
works our bodies, giving us exercise, spatial awareness, and coordination.
All of this is done in an environment of successful accomplishment, creating true satisfaction.
Brightest Star has been evolving since 1977,
when we began as Newark Academy Summer
Musical Theatre and later
became the Vecchio School of Performing Arts,
Morristown-Beard Summer Musical Theatre,
and finally, Brightest Star School of Performing Arts,
formally housed at the Bickford Theatre at The Morris Museum.
We are an expanding independent school of
performing arts, encouraging all students to “learn arts for life”.
