“I am ecstatic to report that the audition process was a lovely variation of your Acting courses. All in all, I felt exceptionally comfortable with my performance because I was familiar with what I learned in your classes. Tremendous thanks!”

Erikka Dunn, accepted in London’s Royal Central School of Speech and Drama, MA Music Theatre Program

“I feel so much more confident going into the auditions knowing that I have a concrete understanding of my monologues, which has definitely stemmed from having had someone like Mariah to ask my questions to and to look to for guidance. From resume setup, to timing our pieces, to what to wear, Mariah really knew exactly how to help us prepare, and to keep us excited and ready for our upcoming auditions!”
