“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.”

Charlie Roberts
STAR Kids Director and past YA Participant

“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.”

Lori Hall O’Donnell
Educator and Parent of STAR Kids, Jr., and YA program participants

“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.”
