Theatre Program

S.T.A.R.S Theatre


S.T.A.R.S. Theatre was founded in 2007 by Gailmarie Sprague and Francesca Lumetta after a discussion about Summer Stock.  With the program growing every year, new staff is brought in to help facilitate the learning process for all members involved.  The program is affordable for all those who audition and there are no cuts made. Roles are chosen specifically by audition, talent level, and maturity level.


S.T.A.R.S. Artistic Team:

  • Gailmarie Sprague - Program Director/Producer
  • Francesca Dobies - Stage/Cast Manager
  • Michael Lockatell - Technical Director
  • Joanne Sprague - Advisor/Costume Design
  • Robert Lockatell - Sound
