STARS (Students Take A Role at the Samford) was created to give every child the opportunity to learn and grow in a safe and supportive arts environment. Our mission is to provide affordable, high-quality theatre education and performance opportunities for all children no matter their situation. Our classes are taught by qualified, professional teaching artists and educators with the passion and drive to cater to the specific needs of each and every child. By offering classes in conjunction with productions, our children are able to apply what they have learned in a hands-on and collaborative environment. At the VST, our classrooms are the stage and our students are the STARS.

The STARS arts education program fosters and showcases the talents of Birmingham’s best young performers. Want to get your student involved? Contact us at STARS@virginiasamfordtheatre.org or call 205.251.1228.
