Testimonials

“It’s been a month and a half, I’ve been in New York on Broadway and I want to give a big thanks to Stacey Flaster for being an amazing coach and coaching me for the audition for On Your Feet the Musical. She’s an amazing coach and I want to send my love. Thank you Stacey!”

–Amaris Sanchez

 

“Stacey is my ‘go to’ coach. She guides & supports, teaches & encourages and gives me the confidence to nail every audition.”

–Aaron Lamm, Goodman Theatre’s A Christmas Carol and rising sophomore New Trier HS

 

“Stacey Flaster basically started my professional career in acting. I got most of my training from her. I remember when I was 9 and I came to her house for the first time with barely any training. When I left, I already had 3 monologues to choose from, and we had worked on the song I sang. I owe most of my career to her. Thank you Stacey!”

–Emily Zimmerman, “Annie” in Theatre at the Center’s Annie Warbucks, age 14

 

“Whenever I work with Stacey I always feel confident that I’m not just getting a coach, but I’m getting a scene partner. She doesn’t just feed lines, she does the research needed to help you understand your character inside and out before going into an audition/taping. When she reads opposite me in our coaching sessions, she constantly brings emotions out of me that I would have never be able to bring if she were not there. She understands how many contenders go in for the roles I go in for and she consistently guides me to make sure my submission stands out among the rest.”

—Student Kailey Albus, 14 years old, TPS student and ‘Mary’ in Lake Forest Theatre’s Secret Garden

 

“Stacey Flaster is one of the most talented, intellectual, understanding, and truly life-changing teachers anyone will have the privilege to work with. She knows the business and how to work each piece to make a breakthrough. Everything she does truly turns into a work of art by opening up your mind to new techniques and ideas. She allows you to explore your own acting and performance while guiding you in order to reach your true potential. Once I started working with Stacey, I started getting cast in multiple shows and in larger roles and then I ever thought possible. She helps me with auditions, the shows I am in, and everything in between. She is truly irreplaceable in my eyes and everyone else’s.”
