Bright Star Touring Theatre is a national touring theater company based in Asheville, NC. Their mission is to challenge, engage, and delight audiences all over the world. 

 

Sonia de los Santos was born with a smile on her face (that’s what her mom says) in Monterrey, Mexico, and in 2007 started touring the world, singing in English and Spanish, playing guitar and jarana, and lighting up the stage with Grammy Award winning group Dan Zanes And Friends.

 

Sonia was nominated in 2019 for a Latin Grammy with her second family music album titled ¡Alegría! and has been hailed by Billboard as “one of the Latin Children’s music artists you should know” and Best Latin Children’s Music. She has been featured on NBC’s Visiones, Sirius XM’s Kids Place Live and WXPN’s Kids Corner among others. She has also made numerous appearances as a singer and guitarist on TV shows like ABC’s Good Morning America, CBS’s The Early Show, and Sprout’s The Sunny Side Up Show.

 

Children’s Theater Festival’s presentation of Super Saturday is supported by grants from the Mary F. Kessler Fund at the Polk County Community Foundation. We are also grateful to the Polk County Community Foundation for administering the George and Ester Moore Endowment Fund, Arthur M. and Frances H. Wilhelm Fund, and the Dixie and Harry Evans Charitable Endowment Fund. 

 

Super Saturday is on Saturday, March 19th. The 2022 Melrose Strut, our annual parade, will be in honor of Justin Lawrence and Drew Brannon.
