My Nonprofit Reviews
Review for Poinsettia Center For The Arts/DBA Star Theatre Company, Oceanside, CA, USA
The Star Theatre is an extraordinary non-profit that truly merits generous support from our community.
The youth theater program, in particular, is a unique treasure. It attracts extremely talented actors who are among the best performers in the county. The shows are always of the highest quality, consistently surpassing our high expectations.
Just as importantly, and unlike nearly every other high quality theater program, the Star Theare distinguishes itself by ensuring that EVERY young person who auditions is offered a role, regardless of their financial situation, experience, or disabilities.
By contributing to this nonprofit, we can help the Star continue to provide scholarships so that no child is denied the opportunity to perform. Several of the most talented actors would not have had this opportunity to learn and perform without the generous scholarships.
The expert directors David Schultz & Sandra Kopitzky bring out very best in their performers using positive affirmation, encouragement, and humor. In doing so, they build confidence and tremendous skills in their actors.
On a personal level, I am deeply grateful to the Star Theatre for the impact it has had on my son Ben. His self-esteem, confidence, and happiness have soared through his experiences at the Star over the past six years and have had a profound impact on his life at school and home. Currently, he aspires to a professional career in musical theater, thanks to his experiences at the Star.
There are so few opportunities like this in our schools or community. For these reasons and more, I enthusiastically endorse this nonprofit and encourage everyone to support it, get involved, or simply come to enjoy a show.
