    As a five year Starlight subscriber, this book was a must own for me (bought on sale at the end of season show). A thorough history of Starlight's existence, from 1951-1992, there is a complete show history and a spotlight on several of the talented individuals that have made Starlight tick over the years. In my opinion, this book is due for an update, there is over two decades worth of shows to highlight and mention - including several in-house productions.
