ARTS International LA Showcase
I just finished my week at the ARTS International Showcase in LA. This was an opprotunity for me to perform in front of agents, casting directors, schools, and so many more as well as getting scored and given feedback based on my performances throughout the week. I made it to finals for the singing and monologue categories. Additionally, I was awarded the Overall Talent award for scoring top numbers in all categories I performed in (Singing, Monologue, Commercial, Film Scene, and Improv). I received multiple scholarships from ARTS International itself, along with many schools such as NYCDA and the New York Film Academy. My time at the ARTS was a unique experience, in which I gained so many new friends, in addition to meaningful contacts in the industry. I cannot wait for the opportunity to participate in this showcase again in the future!
1 Day Play Festival at Reno Little Theater
I made my Reno debut (since high school) at the 1 Day Play Festival at Reno Little Theater. There was an original audition to get into the festival. Once the day came, 24 hours before the performance, all of the writers, directors, crew, and actors met. The chosen actors "auditioned" for the writers. After all of the auditions, the writers got together to choose their casts and got going on writing their 10 minute scripts under the theme "Jolly Holiday". At 8 am, the directors started their day at RLT by choosing which shows they wanted to direct. At 9 am, the actors then joined the directors to find which show they were in. The rest of the day is spent rehearsing and memorizing these plays, and at 7:30 pm, the plays were performed for a full audience. It was such a crazy and exciting event, where I really had the chance to work with some amazing actors and creative talent. I hope to participate again next year. Thank you RLT for giving me my Reno debut!
National Anthem at the University of Nevada Reno
I had the privilege of singing the National Anthem at Lawlor Events Center for the televised UNR vs USC college basketball game in November. You can watch it at the link below. Go pack!
