Review for Star Struck Theatre, Fremont, CA, USA

Rating: 5 stars  

I have been taking my two grade-school aged sons to see Starstruck's amazing performances for over 5 years. At the very first performance we attended I was shocked to find out that the actors were ages 9-16. I thought I was watching young adult actors and that children's theater meant it was FOR children, not performed BY children! The vocals and acting were of such a high quality - way beyond their years, professional, even. The staging, costumes and direction were amazing, I still wonder how they pull it off, knowing that they rely on donations to keep these enriching shows coming my way. Through the years as I attended this theater and occasionally caught shows at other children's theaters in the Bay Area, I was consistently pleased to see the high quality singers, dancers and actors Starstruck attracts (and develops) in their well produced shows. They set the bar very high and not many other theaters in the bay area can compete.
Then, two years ago, a good friend's son auditioned and began performing in Starstruck shows and I was so very lucky to hear about how things ran from the inside and was able to further appreciate the amazing character building, professional and personal development the staff nurtures among their actors.
I have seen a young man flourish and grow by leaps and bounds due to his involvement with Lori and her staff, it's been a beautiful sight to see. I cannot recommend this organization enough to any human being on the planet in terms of attending their shows, being in their shows or supporting their shows through donations or grants. They truly do stellar work in the community and affect our young people (me and my sons included!) in more ways than even they can imagine. Maybe someday my boys will audition!

If I had to make changes to this organization, I would...

Expand and do even more shows. This organization runs great shows, develops young people and brings joy to everyone attending their shows. What more could anyone ask?
