WHY: Founder and Executive Director, Marilyn Abad-Cardinalli created the Gavilan
College Summer Theatre Arts Repertory (S.T.A.R.) Program in 1985, to expose
children to the performing arts, boost their confidence and poise, and
encourage teamwork, creativity, collaboration, and respect. Many of these
STAR Kids return to the program to become STAR leaders.

Every summer for the past 23 years, 200+ children have returned to
participate in the Gavilan STAR Program. Summer sessions include the popular
STAR Gilroy session, where children perform in a summer musical; STAR Video,
where children produce a television program; and STAR San Juan Bautista,
where children perform in an adaptation of one of Shakespeares plays at the
historic El Teatro Campesino Playhouse. The Gavilan STAR Program also offers
acting and TV mini-workshops in the Fall and Spring. Please check the
