"The Wishing Tree"DIRECTOR & MOVEMENT DIRECTOR
The Wishing Tree is an original devised play that was inspired by a tree that I found in Little Tokyo in Downtown Los Angeles. It was a tree that was covered in colored paper with wishes written from people passing by. It had wishes about love, family, politics, success, and even silly ones that made you laugh. The play explores different people of all ages and experiences, and what stories and complexities lie behind a simple wish. This play was performed in the Hallberg Theatre at California State University of Fullerton.

Lighting was extremely important for this play. I needed the stars and the tree to have the ability to light up independently from each other, and there were many shifts made by light cues.
