“The STARS program offers a wonderfully enriching curriculum. My daughter’s growth in all aspects of stage performance has been astounding! Thanks to the encouragement and instruction of the STARS educators she has gained confidence, poise and a passion for performing. We are so thankful for everyone involved with this program and their commitment to making the performing arts accessible to all students.” March 2017 

“I had so much fun working backstage today for the last performance of Alice JR. Super great group of kids. Virginia Samford Theatre does such a remarkable job of helping these kids grow in a loving, encouraging environment. If you have a kid who loves theatre or would like to try it, VST is a great place.” March 2017

“It was such an amazing experience for us and we are so grateful to everyone at Virginia Samford for everything they have done to make this wonderful show possible. We are so impressed and I think [my child] was been bitten by the bug and is hooked for life!” March 2017

“[My child] cries every time the show ends. That tells me she loves where she’s been. Last summer she told me that she found a place where she didn’t feel weird. A place where everyone was always singing and dancing. A home. Thank you for orchestrating such a wonderful program. All of my friends so enjoyed the performances and atmosphere. We can’t wait to be back this summer!” March 2017

“We just LOVE our VST family! Thanks to all of you for giving all these kids a safe place to reach their potential!” February 2017

“[My child] was the lead role in her school’s musical production this year – and she was amazing!  The high school theater teacher has asked that she be in some of their kid/family-friendly productions in the Spring too.  We knew she is talented, but wow – she blew us away!  I totally want to give you guys credit for building her presence on stage, by giving her confidence in the skills and knowledge she has learned from you guys.  She was able to make the production run flawlessly.  THANK YOU SO MUCH!!  Her love for theater is growing stronger and stronger.” December 2016

“His self esteem has risen 100% since VST . He never wanted us to come to his games because he knew he would only play in the one obligatory play of the game. He could not wait for us to come see his performance.” July 2016

“Loved the acting camp my granddaughter attended at VST. She has really developed an interest in theatre at her school, and I think her experience this past week will really help her.” June 2016

“As a parent, it is thrilling to see your child explore and develop a new passion for something and for an awesome organization like Virginia Samford Theatre to offer such great training and encouragement.” February 2016
