Testimonials

  • Harriet who has been obsessed with musicals and watching talented acting from a young age absolutely loves coming to Starcast . You are all so loving and kind and Harriet is so lucky to have this on her doorstep. As a parent it's lovely for your child to belong to something and keep them on the straight and narrow. Harriet was quite anxious up to the age of three, seeing her perform on Saturday made me burst with pride in her confidence.

  • I have been training at starcast for 8 years now. My favourite thing about starcast is the atmosphere and how enjoyable it is and how it can fix your mood after a boring day at school. If you’re thinking about joining starcast but are too shy/ scared of making friends, you shouldn’t be. Starcast is such a loving place to be and eveyone is a group and is a part of a family and will take you onboard. Starcast has boosted my confidence more than I ever could of imagined, I made new friends from different schools. I am 14 years old. Starcast is by far the best group I have ever been too and I’m so lucky to have such a loving family like the one at starcast. I am so thankful for everything they have done for me and can’t wait for many more years of shows and exams x

  • Starcast I want to thank you for all your support of Livi, whilst she may often seem this ball of confidence, she really isn’t, so the way you bring her out of herself and give her belief will give her skills for her whole life, how special and precious that is.
