We know each of our contestants took away gifts that cannot be measured in $$$.  Julia Adams (second from the right) had this to say:


“I want to send a huge congratulations to the Rehearsal Club!! I am so happy to hear that you’re having a meeting and moving forward as the incredible group you are. Being part of the Rising Star Event last summer helped me grow so much, as a performer and as a person. I was incredibly inspired by the stories of the women of the Rehearsal Club and the bond that you all share. I am honored to have been a small part of the history. Right now I’m in Sonora, California rehearsing for Sierra Repertory’s production of Grease! I’m playing Marty and having the time of my life. The Rising Star Event and the ladies that mentored me helped me gain back a confidence that I thought I had lost for good. I attribute so much of the courage that I have to keep trying and not take no for an answer to the time I spent with the ladies of the Rehearsal Club. So congratulations and THANK YOU!!”

As of 2019, she was  cast as "Marty" in Grease in CA!
