Congratulations on your roles.
Some of you, we imagine will be elated, others neutral, and most likely some disappointed. The most important thing now is to move positively forward- those disappointed, unfortunately, that can be a part of casting experience. Hang in there. Avoid too much prejudgment about the worthiness of roles, about what you will or won’t sing, say or dance. As announced, there will be some song and line reassignments.
Audiences already familiar with Mount Madonna School’s unique and professional production of “Ramayana” don’t need any additional incentive to follow the show to San Jose; the music, costumes, and special effects – not to mention the 200+ young actors – keep loyal fans returning year after year.

My American Ramayana Experience
By Jasbir Nijor
The play is about to start, and the only thing I can think about is why the costume lady tied my bells so tight. They’re cutting off the circulation in my ankles, but the feeling of pride and honor in being one of the lucky few to wear these bells outweighs the pain.
