  • 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.

  • Starcast has a very special place in my heart. My six year old has been attending for almost two years now and he absolutely LOVES coming to class each week! He has built up his confidence, not just as a performer but in general too
