Students Take A Role at the Samford
The historic Virginia Samford Theatre and Metropolitan Arts Center are proud to continue their successful educational program designed to encourage and train young performers in acting, dance and voice. Students will be given the opportunity to experience the thrill of developing their skills in all areas of live theatre with some of the finest arts educators in the Southeast.
The STARS arts education program enables young people from diverse backgrounds to create a lifelong memory of working in an arts environment and moves them to a greater state of awareness of the value of the arts. Through active participation in the creation of live theatre, students are given a heightened perspective on the positive relationships between the arts and life experiences.
Led by award-winning educator and Alabama Teacher of the Year, Director Roy Hudson, the STARS arts education program fosters and showcases the talents of Birmingham’s best young performers.
