PREMIERE: Sept. 5, 2014 – PRINT: Program
A Drift Plume Production
“The fate of the world is in the hands of one teenage girl, holding the key to unlock the gates
of heaven and hell, in this paranormal thriller hidden in the haunted isles of Northern Italy.”
YUKI HAYASHI – Vida
Words cannot begin to describe how excited and honored Yuki is for the chance to work with Azure Lorica. A regular college student by day, by night she becomes a more game, music and anime focused girl. Normally she is found playing the guitar or singing or drawing/sketching whatever comes to mind. But catch her when she’s in her gaming mood and you’ll see the weirdest gamer ever. Her downtime would usually include night walks along the beach or watching marathons of horror or animation movies, listening to music all night, or typing up a story. Overall, Yuki is a pretty confusing character… Even I have trouble figuring out what’s going on sometimes!
MIGUEL COSTA – Julius Kros

VALERIE JAIMES – Dr. Olivia Gentry
Valerie Jaimes is super excited to be a part of this production. Thanks to this oppurtinity, she is now decided on pursuing theater. “I’ve always been pretty ‘artsy’ I guess you can say. I’ve thought about acting, but never really anything else besides the thought of Hollywood. Now I see that you can have fun with the arts in just about any way. I was a server at one point, and that’s when I realized that theater is all around us. I say this because one must maintain composure, even in the most stressful situations, and smile no matter what. But I’m just weird though.Wait..that last part was random.”
