STEM Rocks The Box

The cornerstone of the SBX Performance Academy, STEM Rocks the ‘Box is an 8-day afterschool program where select high school students work with professional artists to learn comedy acting, rock vocals, dance, music, backstage, stage managing, costumes, makeup, theater lighting and sound, etc.
The students then prove their knowledge by performing alongside SBX metaperformers in a full-length sketch comedy and music experience. 

This is not a talent show. It’s a real-life boot camp designed to give students a rare taste of the arts.
