Our 3 children have all participated in many plays with STAR, dating back to 1999. They all have loved every performance and excitedly return each year. It is well worth the cost which is much less than other camps at which we have looked. The all volunteer parents that run the organization are truly remarkable and clearly trying their best.
My 3 children started participating with STAR when the shows were held at Relay Town Hall -a small intimate venue. I was impressed with the volunteers and those who dedicated their time and energy to the workshops. Because of the positive and uplifting people we came back and became more involved. My children loved having the opportunity to perform in a welcoming, no pressure atmosphere. Their all volunteer Board of Directors encouraged new members and held yearly open elections. I thus decided to help and stepped up to serve on their Board. So much goes on behind the scenes before workshops begin and the opportunity to serve has broadened my own understanding of theater productions. If you are looking to drop your kids and run the other way then this may not be "it" for you. If you are looking for an organization that offers opportunities for creative growth, personal development and leadership opportunities for children, young adults as well as the young at heart in the community then STAR is definitely worth checking out! http://www.starltd.org
