MERVIC MONOCILLO, Community Ensemble Participant
Am I dreaming? A question that has been on my mind for the last few weeks and still clinging into my self. I still can’t picture my self being in the centre of the stage and doing all the things that our director is asking…I still can’t believe myself being in that big, enormous stage running from one side to the other…. following anyone in front of me and yet mentally blank and at a loss. As the ever-supportive production staff say: it’s alright… you’re all fantastic… well done… you did it brilliantly…..funny and yet the unexplained feeling of joy, excitement, fear of committing a mistake or a feeling of elation when all the things have been done beyond our expectation is just spectacular…it is indeed HEAVEN.
A part of my journey in life indeed came true. An early Christmas present from Santa….an experience that never in my life will I forget. I have gained new friends and acquaintances and have learned a lot from each one of them. Indeed this experience has made me a better person. I will continue my journey and enjoy every minute of each show.
