STAR’s Development Director, Peter Saverine says, “Moving to Concert Hall at Norwalk City Hall this year is so important to us. The City of Norwalk has always been a strong supporter of STAR. We’re taking full advantage of this professional theatrical stage and full-size auditorium with its wonderful acoustics.

STARs on Broadway will showcase favorite Broadway show tunes woven into a story with dances performed by a cast whose talents outshine the challenges of developmental disabilities they face each day. For the ultimate, feel-good break from the holiday rush, we hope the public will join us in support of our rising STARs to fill this great venue.”
