Rave Reviews

“I just want to say thank you for being you! In all the years and all the groups I’ve worked with, I have never found someone so dedicated to the people and the process”

“You truly embrace the very nature of community theatre and while you along with your cast strive to be the best we can be you never let us forget the true meaning and point behind what we are doing. Your objectives are pure and simple – to bring people together to entertain the community with live theatre but more importantly to have a great experience in the process.”

“Laurie….I have learned and grown so much under your instruction and teaching. But even more than that, you have been such an incredible mentor in my life. You haven’t been just a director; you have been a friend. Your tireless devotion to RRS and to all of us has moved and impacted me so much….No one else could take a bunch of immature, obnoxious kids and turn them into graceful adults the way you have..”

“Thank you so much for giving me the gift of Rising Stars. I honestly don’t know what I would have spent my time doing during high school if it wasn’t for RRS. Thank you so much for all of your hard work and for the faith you have had in all of us.”

“RRS has completely transformed me and my life. The community formed as a result of this group is stronger than any other bond I’ve ever forged. RRS has truly created a haven for me where, whenever I needed to, I could get all the love and support in the world. The experiences that I’ve had will stay with me forever. They are such an enormous part of who I am. I value my time with Rising Stars more than any other time in my life. Thank you, Laurie, for helping me become the person I am now.”

“I cannot really express what you and this program mean to me. Besides being a wonderful place to grow – both personally and as an actor -it’s been a safe place to be when school was sucky or I just needed to feel at home. Thank you so much for doing what you do…”

“I don’t think you have any idea what your presence in my life has meant to me. It’s impossible to describe how you have changed my life so much. My love for musical theater would never have happened if it weren’t for you. I hope that you know what an impact your love and encouragement has made on us “

“We are so sad when we say goodbye to Seniors but there has always been one thing that has remained the same…your dedication and devotion to the kids. I wouldn’t be the person I am without you.”

“I will never forget how you turned my life from ordinary to amazing!”

“You have touched my life in ways that you can not possibly comprehend, and for that I thank you. And thank you times infinity.”
