The All Stars Talent Show Network (ASTSN) involves thousands of young people ages 5 to 25 in creating developmental culture through producing and performing in auditions, workshops and talent shows in neighborhood school auditoriums.“The All Stars is taking the arts into the community and developing a bridge that allows us to see a better way to a future for all of us. When All Stars comes into the poor community, opportunity is built.” states Ben Vereen who was recently awarded the All Stars Project’s 2011 Bridge Building Award for Leadership in Community Relations.
