Hello BER months and as we usher in the Yuletide season it is also the season of sharing and giving. We can start by supporting this exciting fund raiser for PhilStage by the cast and production behind this one night only event. I am also proud of my theater friends involved in this noble project. You guys simply ROCK!
Seven of the country’s finest theater artists are set to join forces on September 1 for PHILSTAGE’s fundraiser. Entitled “Mundong Entablado”, the show is part of the One Night Stand monthly cabaret at 12 Monkeys Music Hall, and features songs from eleven contemporary Filipino musicals.
Theater veterans Bituin Escalante, CrisVillonco, Sweet Plantado, Nonie Buencamino, and OJ Mariano take the stage with rising stars Kim Molina and Sandino Martin in this unique celebration of Manila’s vibrant performing arts scene. Under the direction of Topper Fabregas and musical direction of EjayYatco, the program consists of songs from Rock Supremo, ZsaZsaZaturnnah, BituingWalangNingning, Lorenzo, Noli Me Tangere, El Filibusterismo, Maxie the Musical, Kung PaanoAkoNaging Leading Lady, Sa Wakas, Rizal X, IsangPanaginipnaFili, and Rak of Aegis, all re-arranged for this cabaret.
Proceeds of the event will help fund PHILSTAGE’s projects such as theatre workshops, master classes, and the annual GawadBuhay! Awards.
