Rated FIVE STARS by Theatre Bloom, Cry-Baby is based on the cult classic, 1990 John Waters film. This jumping, jiving Tony nominee musical is a rebellious teen comedy event! It’s 1954 and Wade “Cry-Baby” Walker is the coolest boy in Baltimore. He’s a bad boy with a good cause – truth, justice, and the pursuit of rock and roll. Cry-Baby and the square rich girl, Allison, are star-crossed lovers at the center of this world. It’s Romeo and Juliet meets High School Hellcats.

“STAR has been an integral part of my life for the last seven years. STAR has not only helped me to grow as a performer but as a person as well. While performing with STAR, they instilled a passion for performing, knowledge of design, and unmatched care for others that I carry with me to this day. As an employee for STAR, I try to instill those same values in my staff and workshop participants. There is no other place like STAR in Catonsville, Maryland, or beyond. STAR is a beautiful family of which I am proud to be a part of.”
“The STAR Ltd. program has provided my very different girls with gifts that are hard to put into words: confidence, inclusion, community, teamwork, patience, discovering talent, dealing with disappointment, along with the skills needed to become better musical actresses. I am forever grateful a friend recommended STAR to us seven years ago.”
“STAR has been a part of my life for nearly 10 years now. Not only do the directors always work hard to put on an amazing show, but also they truly care for the cast. As STAR has grown, I feel like I have grown with it. The people I have met have become some of my closest friends and mentors. I recommend STAR to anyone who wants to gain valuable theatre experience while having an amazing summer.”
“Our daughter absolutely loves STAR! She immediately felt like part of the group, and we have been thrilled with the friendships she has made! The shows are so entertaining, it’s hard to believe they do that in just 3 weeks!”
“STAR is like a second family to me. Everyone is supportive and caring of each other. The environment is great.”
