“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!”
