Did Somebody Say Free Food?
Actors eat for free! Our kitchen provides lunch (matinee) and dinner (evening) for every show!
Commemorating Your Achievements
Actors who perform in 7 shows receive a commemorative pewter chalice that is presented on the closing night of their 7th show. It is the responsibility of the actor to inform the box office when they have reached 7 shows. The chalice presentation is one of Stars’ longest running traditions and is considered a great achievement to Kern County actors.
