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, 5-Star 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 5-Star 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 5-Star 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, 5-Star 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.
