Star Productions International, Inc. (SPI), is a small theatre company composed of nine artists committed to exposing their craft, in varying genres, to children and adult audiences. SPI is both a presenting and performance venue for artist to work in collaboration with other art mediums such as music, literature, and visual arts. Twice a year artists collaborate to conduct a 10 week theatre camp and performance presentation. The camp consist of workshops, field trips and theatre experiences that are taught to children ages 8 - 17. Our mission is to become an artist workplace for the development or advancement of current work or new works in theatre.






The theatre company was created by playwright C. Maria Macon who had her directorial debut in March 2004 with the play The African American Talking Museum. The signature production for SPI is the award winning children's play "The Star That Hangs Closest to the Earth" written by Macon and performed by children that graduate from the 10 week theatre camp.

The 10 week workshop recently ended with two performances of the "The Star That Hangs Closest to the Earth".  To read recent review and for more information about upcoming workshops, please click here.
