Our Workshops


STAR Kids is a one-week exploratory program introducing musical theatre to children aged 4 through 8. Our S.T.A.R. Kids performances are approximately 30 minutes long and take place on the evening of the last day of the workshop.


STAR Jr. is a three week, full-day workshop for ages 8 through 14. During this program, participants rehearse a one-hour-long Broadway Jr. production, culminating in three performances. Many elements of theatre tech are introduced during this program through hands-on learning, including set building, prop creation, costuming, and backstage etiquette.

STAR Young Adults

STAR YA is a summer Musical Theatre workshop for Young Adults, ages 14 through 19. During this program, participants will rehearse a full-scale production, culminating in four performances. Rehearsals are weekday evenings starting in June. Actors from our workshops have gone on to work in the theatre world professionally in many capacities!


“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.”

“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!”
