5-Star Theatricals creates professional-level productions locally, and when shows call for children, the talent from the community is overwhelming. In order to engage and inspire these young people between 5-Star Theatricals shows, Starlight Kids was created!
The program is comprised of more than 60 children between the ages of 8 and 14, all of whom must audition to become part of the group. There are no fees to participate in Starlight Kids, and the performers are encouraged to further their education and experience with other groups, shows and entertainments, and to bring that experience back to Starlight Kids.
Education is a key component, as the Kids are taught a variety of material and songs, learning various styles, and discovering great music of earlier eras. In addition to performances at the Civic Arts Plaza, Starlight Kids play a leading role in our entertainment for the military and senior citizens, allowing 5-Star Theatricals to share a fundamental education: the act of performance as giving.
