Why do you love Starlight?
“Dear Cyn, This being my fourth year of Starlight I can stop and think about how great a director you are. I love how you always pay attention and answer our questions no matter how rushed you are. I love when you always have everything planned out and always are there for us.”
“My son worked with Cyn for years and we love her! I have a friend who
has an inspiring little actor and wanted to forward your audition
information on to them. My son is 21 and is studying theatre at Emerson in
Boston and a lot of credit goes to Cyn for all she does with the kids!”
“Starlight has been one of the best experiences of my life for many reasons. The other day I beat out more than 200 of my classmates to join the 16 people accepted onto mock trial and I realized Starlight gave me an edge. A few days before I had to do an oral argument for class. My oral argument for class was, shall we say dreadful. My nerves were obvious and I talked way too fast. So when I decided to audition for Mock Trial I approached it differently. I rehearsed my oral argument like a monologue and made up a character I called “Abigail Holmes Esq.” She walked with her shoulders back, gave a cheeky smile when asking a rhetorical question and knew how to get and emotional response from a jury. I walked into the Mock Trial try-outs exactly like it was an audition for a play too. I left my bag next to the door (something Jen taught me), I wore a red dress shirt under my suit (you taught me red made auditioners remember you), I smiled but I was obviously nervous. I took a deep breath and began. However, as soon as I started talking the whole room looked surprised. In that moment I had turned off my nerves and became the character. I delivered my legal arguments flawlessly; so flawless that I was never interrupted with a question. And when I forgot what I was supposed to say next I was able to improvise until I could find my place on the page again. So when I opened my email on Monday morning to find that I had made the mock trial team I was elated. I want to be a civil litigator so membership on the team will be a great advantage when I look for jobs. However, I could not have done it with out acting and audition coaching from Starlight, so thank you.”
