“Ever since I was little performing, I have looked up to the older kids wanting to be like them. I was able to grow through a constant support system and incredible training with the wonderful people who make up the Spotlight team. They have also taught me how to be professional in this environment but still have an amazing time while I perform.”

Victoria Goodkind

“Spotlight has not only helped me grow as a performer, but as a person. Coming into my first show at Yorba Linda Spotlight, I didn’t even talk… to anyone. I was as shy as could be, but gradually I started making friends and opening up. I wouldn’t be who I am today if it wasn’t for Yorba Linda Spotlight!”

Brayden Martino

“Spotlight has helped me grow as a performer exponentially. When I was younger, watching the older kids at every rehearsal was like a masterclass. Since then, I’ve learned to always be open to new ideas and never stop growing. Spotlight also taught me how to conduct myself in a professional manner in any situation.”

Marie Beld

“Yorba Linda Spotlight was essentially what kindled my love for theatre in the first place. So I might not even be a performer today if it weren’t for them. So much of what I know about theatre is because of Spotlight.  Being in the shows and getting feedback about my performance from my directors has helped me learn a lot about acting. It has truly been such a great environment for me to learn and grow as a performer.”

Hannah Campbell

“I’ve learned so much when it comes to singing, acting, and dancing with the training I’ve received. The creative team has pretty much taught me everything I know, I’ve taken voice lessons with them, dance lessons, and so on. They’ve shaped me into the performer I am and have opened so many doors for me within the realm of theatre. Through Spotlight I now have various knowledge of numerous theatre fields, and I couldn’t be more grateful for that.”

Ron Kinloch

“Spotlight has not only helped me grow as a performer but as a person. Their guidance and training has helped me improve in all areas. I have taken various drama and theatre classes that taught me the basics of acting. I have taken weekly voice lessons for years through Spotlight and I have improved immensely. I have taken many dance classes and continue to grow in my abilities. They have taught me the definition of teamwork, determination, and encouragement.”

Hannah Oertwig

“Every show has taught me something else. Little Mermaid taught me how to mess up and recover on stage. Wizard of oz helped me learn how to master quick changes. I could go on, but the point is yes, I definatly wouldn’t be where I am now without Spotlight.”

Karson Bollinger

“There are many amazing performers at Spotlight and I have learned so much from watching them over the years. The directors have really helped me with developing my acting skills.”

Alana Harrison

“Spotlight has helped me grow as a performer in so many ways. I’ve been challenged with a lot of roles that have pushed me vocally to work on expanding my range, both higher and lower. I also started off in musical theatre with two left feet, and I have Spotlight to thank for helping me become a better dancer.”
