  • Please share some interesting anecdotes or unforgettable moments on stage.
    We were doing a matinee of When Swallow Returns on Po Toi Island when a dog just casually strolled onstage, into the “Palace”. We had to hold back our laughter while performing.
  • What has been the greatest reward of joining our Young Talent Showcase?
    The artistic directors coached attentively and provided clear instructions during both read-throughs and rehearsals. I have gained great insights on how to develop and interpret different roles.
