TALENTED TRIO MAKES IT INTO MISS SAIGON MUSICAL
Three talented West Sydney girls are now part of the new Miss Saigon Musical that’s set to launch on July 28-August 12 at the Riverside Theatre in Parramatta.
Filipino-Australians Jayd Luna, Trinity Dawn Ilagan and Princess De Leon have been selected by Packemin Priductions to be a part of a huge ensemble cast.
Luna, 17, from Quakers Hill, was a contestant on the X Factor last year. St Clair residents Ilagan, 17, is a contemporary dancer while De Leon, 17, is another accomplished singer who trained in classical music for over 10 years. All three are from the Nepean Creative and Performing Arts High School.
The three close friends, influenced by a variety of genres from classical, jazz, pop, acoustic, a cappella and pop music, are excited at the prospect of working together for the very first time.
“I love Miss Saigon because I’m a Leah Salonga fan. We all auditioned around the same time and got in. Our roles take us out of our comfort zone but as growing performers its good for our experience and help develop our mindset if we want to break into the entertainment industry,” said De Leon.
