I am pleased to welcome you to the website of the New Star Children's Theatre. My name is Dana Hendry and I am the Director of New Star. I have been directing children's theatre for over thirty years now, having started directing in 1978, in a little town called Trenton, Ontario, in Canada, when I was only 16 years of age. I had written a children's musical and held auditions, and ended up with the whole town backing me up, providing me with rehearsal space at the local rotary club, a way to record my own music at the local radio station, and a place to perform at the local high school.

Register for the New Star Children's Theatre summer musical theatre workshop for children ages 4 - 17 years old.

New Star Chidren's Theatre has announced the fall play, "Curtain Up". Curtain Up is an original New Star Children's Theatre production written by New Star alumni, Sacramento Elly-nominated playwright Melanie Thompson. This announcement has already created a "buzz" with New Star alumni who may just return to star in this popular show!
Our expectation for each and every member of the cast is that they achieve their personal best. We recognize that each performer is at their own level of talent and experience and each child is special for their own reasons. That is the philosophy that we work under in running New Star. This is not a theatre company for "Stars" but one that makes EVERY performer a STAR for their performances.
New Star Children's Theatre in Fair Oaks, California serves the greater Sacramento area. We produce both original as well as classic Broadway musical productions with children ranging in age from 4 to 17 years old. Every child who auditions is given a part in the show as we strive to develop each child's sense of confidence through training in singing, dancing and acting.
