When I was in UCLA, I joined a theatre company called Lapu the Coyote that Cares. It’s a student-run theatre company that produces their original shows. All the scripts are written by its cast members, and the directing and acting are all done within the group. I’ve seen many student theatre companies on campus but this was the only one that’s consistently putting on shows every single quarter. My college life would’ve been really different without LCC cuz it was such a big part of my college life. I love being silly and I love being creative. I have really random ideas that just need to go somewhere. This group certainly encouraged creativity, and I learned a lot about making visions come true. It taught me a lot about taking an idea and then somehow turn it into a project and then finally a product. The product might be good, might be bad, but what matters is, it gets done.

Up till the previous show, I was performing with LCC. This is my first show as “the wise alumni that come to see the show”. Who knows how the show will turn out to be? But that doesn’t change my love for student productions. Maybe I’ll write more about that later. For now, here’s the show information:

    I’m missing you, obviously. I looking at older videos. Found this one and realized I hadn’t even left a comment at. I enjoyed the video as usual. Lapu the Coyote was fun, especially how he disappeared and brought Mac and Cheese back. I loved the facial expressions they had when he returned.

    Are you doing any puppetry, lately? I hope so. I noticed one line in this short post you wrote about yourself. It fits. ” I love being silly and I love being creative.” You are both of those and I mean in the most positive way. I, too, enjoy both of those:~)

    I wish I could have seen this show and/or had a group like this when I was in college.

    Anyway, no response needed. This was just me touching base with you. I hope all is well and you’re still enjoying being “silly” and “creative.”
