Student: Sayer Uribe, 9 Disciplines: Music, Drama Favorite Subject in School: No homework Best thing about LAMusArt: Camp MusArt
In fourth-grader Sayer Uribe’s short two years at LAMusArt, he has accomplished so much as a drama student and a music student. Sayer says he found LAMusArt by watching our videos on YouTube, which led him to sign up for Camp MusArt in 2016. He played the part of a Fish and a Jungle Citizen in LAMusArt’s production of Seussical Jr. that summer, an experience that encouraged him to come to LAMusArt for more.
Sayer continued his arts education after Seussical by joining the Tuition-Free Choir and taking private voice lessons with Mr. Chanu. He also joined the weekly Drama class taught by Mr. Laughlin, where he develops his skills in character development and acting technique.
In 2017, Sayer came back to camp to perform in LAMusArt’s production of The Lion King, Jr. as a Zebra and a Bird Puppeteer. When asked what his best memory of camp was, Sayer says, “I liked my first day of camp and auditioning for the character I liked.”
In Fall 2017, Sayer joined the inaugural class of Playmaking, taught by Miss Cadrez, where students learn to write plays that adult professionals perform. Sayer’s play, “Max and Taylor’s Crazy Day,” was a huge hit at the Playmaking performance at USC’s Scene Dock Theater. Directed by Nathan Singh and starring Jake Minton and Evan Enderle, Uribe’s riotous comedy followed a college-aged Costco employee and his dorm-mate, a Target employee, as they continue to prank one another throughout the workday.
Most recently, Sayer performed with the Choir at the annual Winter Benefit Posada at Tamayo’s Restaurant, and the Winter Holiday Concert at ELAC. Entering 2018, Sayer says he is looking forward to participating in Camp MusArt again this summer.
