MY CUP IS FULL
I've never felt overwhelmed with good things. This is all new to me. We wrapped up an incredible, incredible run of Into the Woods on Monday, December 10, followed by a reception for the First Drama Division Holiday Gathering. My godmother flew in from Manila to catch the last show, and there were also a number of Filipinos who came to see it.
I never mentioned that I played Little Red Riding Hood in any of my social media because I tend to get superstitious about these things. Now that it's over I can finally post pictures!

The Annual Juilliard Drama Open-House
Last Friday, December 14, was the annual Juilliard Drama Open-house, in which Drama students can invite family and friends to observe classes. It's sort of a "day in the life of a Juilliard student" event. Since my godmother was visiting from Manila, I put her name on the list! This might be the only time that people can take pictures of classes for family and friends.
Into the Woods Tech Week
We started to tech Into the Woods last week and we've just begun our first two dress rehearsals. I am looking forward to the rest of the process. This has been such a meaningful journey and I am constantly reminded of how lucky I am to be cast in this production and to be able to get to work with the people who comprise Into the Woods.
I've had such a long journey with my singing voice and I feel as if there are things that are only (and finally) have begun to come together now. I am grateful to be in a space where I get to dig-in a musically challenging piece before I go back into the professional world. I love to sing and I hope that singing will integrate its way into my career in many creative ways.
I am so tempted to post pictures of my costume but I'll wait until we officially open before I do!
