Both hands clapping

Melisa De Seguirant of Castro Valley, a 2004 graduate of Moreau Catholic High School in Hayward, recently made news at UCLA, where she is a third-year musical theater student.

De Seguirant portrayed Daisy Hilton, one of two conjoined twins who were born in the early 20th century and spent their lives on display, in the UCLA Department of Theater production “Side Show.”

It was a large role for the young student, according to an online interview and review in the university’s Daily Bruin.
