Tempe, AZ

Here I am in Tempe, AZ.

The flight here was exhausting but Gizel (Rosalia) made it go by faster by teaching me the card game Phase 10. At first I thoroughly sucked at it but eventually I made the greatest come back in history!

Yesterday was our first day of rehearsal. The show is playing at the Arizona State University Gammage theater. What a difference it was, doing those scenes and songs on a stage instead of a small rehearsal room. Looking out from the stage all I saw were rows and rows of seats and I was reminded of the many times professors told me "don't perform for the just the first row! Your energy and voice needs to reach that back row!" Us newbies were thrown in but I think we did well. The pressure is on but I think we'll all thrive on it.

The best thing about Tempe so far is my room balcony. I spent the afternoon with my feet propped up on the railing and looking out into the distance seeing mountains and the sun setting. Not a bad way to spend my first full day on tour.

So far...

Hi family and friends!

As a way to keep you all updated weekly and to share this experience with you I've decided to blog my tour experience (thank you to Marvin Avila for the blog title). I'm going to miss home very much and I think this is a way of keeping us all connected. And maybe you'll be tempted to visit me on tour and discover a new city in the US!

So far I've received my itinerary of travel details and I have to go for my shoe and dress fittings this week. So exciting! Anyone who knows me knows I love shoes and dresses lol. And I'm in the vocal studio this week with voice teacher Brian to get all the music in my voice before my first rehearsal next week. So that's it so far! Next blog will probably be from my first stop on the tour, Tempe, Arizona!
