Myths and Him Purpose

Welcome to my vision!

Duh! Why don't I do what I love to do? At San Jose State University, Music majors have a senior recital, Dance majors are able to create senior portfolios, but what about the folks in the middle? I needed a showcase that would give me an opportunity to share what I have learned as a undergraduate student.

Well thank God for the Creative Arts program! My Senior Project is the creation of Myths and Him (thanks for the title Mark)! It has been my dream to perform in a concert singing the incredible works of songwriters like Adam Guettel, Jason Robert Brown, and George Michael.

San Jose State University's Musical Theatre program is not very big and only offers a Minor in Musical Theater. At SJSU, Musical Theatre belongs to Janie Scott. Professor Scott's vision of Company One has influenced my life (as well as others) in so many incredible ways! She has shown me that following your dreams is not a cliche statement - rather a rule to live by. With this in my heart, I have grown so much from the young football player fresh out of high school, to a versatile creative artist. I live and breath performance.

Myths and Him is my vehicle to promote Musical Theatre on the San Jose State University campus. I hope this project and my cast will influence other students to push for a larger Musical program on the San Jose State campus, as Prof. Scott can only do so much.

Enjoy your brief stroll around this site. It is brought to you by the extremly talented Mr. Mark Bakalor. If anyone has any questions or comments, email me at myths@fosse.com.
