In celebration of the Philippine Independence Day and kicking off its 12th Theatre Season HABI, Teatro ni Juan’s original musical “Ang Pagsalubong sa Apatnapu” returns this June on a limited run.
Dubbed as “a musical that breaks free from the limits of its space”, Apatnapu rerun features new cast members and a reworked second act. The musical is a tribute to Marikina’s remarkable contribution to the Philippines’ historical narrative — the arrival of Jewish refugees in the valley as they escape the terrors of Kristallnacht, President Manuel Quezon opening the doors of his own abode to the ‘Manilaners’ and their intercultural nexus with the Marikeños. Together, they are forced to contend with the Japanese Imperial Army.
Featuring the Teatro ni Juan ensemble, “Ang Pagsalubong sa Apatnapu” is a musical that is worth telling the generations to come. Here is a chance to witness, as what critics laud, “sheer energy and exhilarating raw sweaty dedication of a true community theatre.”
The production and artistic team includes Jennelle Javier (Production Management), Elvira Lazaro (Stage Management), Clarisse Ilagan (Photography and Art Direction), Mikaela Foronda (Associate Art Direction), Wana Guevara, Ana Rae Tambaoan, & Alliah Micmic (Dramaturgy), Jonpol Ponce & Joseph de Vera (Technical Direction), Edward Monteroso (Set Design), Brian Bruno (Lights Design), Madeline Villamon (Costumes Design), Wana Guevara & Kristine De Leon (Additional Text, Music and Lyrics), Julius Getubig (Musical Direction & Arrangement), Kary Villaflor (Vocal Direction), Michaela Caranza (Original Music), Bianca Trinidad (Choreography), Athena dela Cruz (Assistant Direction), and Mikko Angeles (Direction).
“Ang Pagsalubong sa Apatnapu” runs on June 15-16, 22-23, 29-30, July 6-7, and July 13-14 (Saturdays & Sundays, 7pm) at Tahanan ni Juan, 43-A C. Cruz St., Sta. Elena, Marikina City. Tickets are available at PHP150php. Seats are limited.
