Teatro ni Juan to open ‘Apatnapu’ on Feb. 16

ANG PAGSALUBONG SA APATNAPU runs on February 16-17, 23-24 and March 2-3 (Saturdays & Sundays, 7pm) at Tahanan ni Juan, 43-A C. Cruz St., Sta. Elena,Marikina City.

Teatro ni Juan, Marikina’s premiere community theatre, draws its 11th Theatre Season to a close with ANG PAGSALUBONG SA APATNAPU, a new musical that re-envisions the true events that has transpired in the city in the early ’40s.

A deranged writer recounts how the Jewish refugees found their way to the Valley, escaping the terrors of Kristallnacht. President Manuel Quezon welcomes the ‘Manilaners’ to his abode in the small city of Marikina. Together with the Marikeños, they establish an intercultural nexus with a deeper bond as a community; a forewarning for the turmoil yet to come — the requisitioning of the Japanese Imperial Army over the islands.

Featuring the Teatro ni Juan ensemble, ANG PAGSALUBONG SA APATNAPU is a tread through the remarkable contribution of Marikina to the Philippines’ historical narrative — one that has long been unnoticed by the history books and one that is worth telling the generations to come.

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 (Technical Direction), Brian Bruno (Lights Design), Madeline Villamon (Costume Design), Wana Guevara & Kristine De Leon (Additional Text, Music and Lyrics), Julius Getubig (Additional Musical Arrangement), Kary Villaflor (Vocal and Musical Direction), Michaela Caranza (Original Music and Arrangement), Bianca Trinidad (Assistant Direction & Choreography) and Mikko Angeles (Direction).

ANG PAGSALUBONG SA APATNAPU runs on February 16-17, 23-24 and March 2-3 (Saturdays & Sundays, 7pm) at Tahanan ni Juan, 43-A C. Cruz St., Sta. Elena, Marikina City. Tickets are available at PHP150.
