Welcome to STAR Arts Education!

STAR is a kids Theatre Arts organization based in Gilroy, California. Our mission is to provide a creative and inclusive space for kids aged 7-17 to explore their passion for acting, video, film, and podcasting. At STAR, we believe in connecting and engaging with our STAR kids by fostering core values such as love, trust, community, unity, imagination, and excellence. Through our programs, kids not only learn acting and tech skills on and off the stage, but also develop lifelong friendships and a sense of belonging. Sign up for our newsletter below!

Land Acknowledgement

It is important to STAR that as we continue to learn and grow, so do our practices. As we expand into our new STAR property, Oak Tree Garden, it is important that we are knowledgeable of the history of the land on which we reside. 

Let's take a moment to acknowledge the land we are gathered on. For thousands of years, this land has been the home of Ohlone people, specifically the Popeloutchom (Amah Mutsun) Tribe. They are part of the Mutsun Nation, which at one time was comprised of some 22 Central Coast tribes.

 

The Popeloutchom people have remained committed to the stewardship of this land over many centuries. It has been cherished and protected, as elders have instructed the young through generations. We are honored and grateful to be here today on their traditional lands and will make it a priority to learn and teach the history of this land.

Diversity and Inclusion at STAR

STAR Arts Education strives to connect and engage all children and their families

residing in our Communities with opportunities to experience, be engaged and enjoy the performing arts on stage and on screen virtually or face to face. We aspire not only to reach out to all members of our community through our Summer Musical Theatre; Video Arts camps with onstage musical productions, outdoor performances, artistic workshops and educational partnerships with schools; but also to be inspired and influenced by those we serve, in an attempt to reflect our community and elevate our art form. We are committed to an inclusive approach and to offering equal opportunity for participation and engagement in our all STAR Arts Education programs.
