Shaun had the pleasure and seemingly impossible task of swinging into closing weekend of a show with only one put-in rehearsal! It happened, and no one died- Phew!
"What an incredible way to make my East West Players debut! I've been a fan of this theatre for years and just haven't had many opportunities to audition for the company. Founded in 1965, East West Players is the is the nationâs longest-running professional theater of color and the largest producing organization of Asian American artistic work.
I am so thankful for the cast & crew for making me feel so welcome and comfortable to be onstage with you all like I had been there from day one. Special thanks to Dance Captain, Nicole Santiago, for taking the time to get me prepared and for being a BEAST and learning an entire new track on top of your own. What a whirlwind experience and I am forever grateful.
This year, I told myself to challenge myself- do things that scared me. Jumping into an ensemble track with all the dance numbers, costume changes, quick changes for others (!!!WET SUIT AND FLIPPERS ONSTAGE!!!), was certainly terrifying but incredibly rewarding. And (by the 2nd performance) a whole lotta fun! Cheers to this beautiful family that is #EWPMammaMia. I am in awe of your artistry, your love for each other, and your love for what you/we do. THANK YOU!"
