Playshop turned 15 this year and I just wanted to share about a couple of alumni who is doing well abroad and "pursuing the dream". I read in Alvin Trono's blog that 18 year old Alexa Ortega is starring in the lead role of AIDA (the musical by award-winning Elton John and Tim Rice) in San Mateo, California. Alexa is the older sister of Cheska Ortega, who played Gabriella in Stages production of High School Musical Onstage! at the Meralco.
Another Playshop alumni making it is Katrice Gavino who as told by Lito Villareal (the composer for both Trumpets' Little Mermaid and The Lion, the Witch and the Wardrobe) starred as Dorothy last year in a Los Angeles production of The Wizard of Oz. Both Alexa and Katrice are original members of the Playshop Kids.
I strongly encourage all our students out there to keep honing their skills in Trumpets Playshop and using what you have learned to great advantage in the world. God gave us that talent and it makes Him happy to see us excel with it.
