Tanghalang Pilipino mounts Mario O'Hara's 'Stageshow'
(The Philippine Star) - October 1, 2012 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - After the successful run of its stage play, Walang Kukurap, Tanghalang Pilipino (TP) pays tribute to the stage artists of yesteryears through its 3rd theater season offering titled Stageshow, a grand musical play slated on Oct. 10 to 21, 3 p.m. and 8 p.m., at the Cultural Center of the Philippines Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (CCP Little Theater) .

Written by the late veteran TV, film, and theatre actor, director-playwright Mario O’Hara, Stageshow is a poignant and emotionally-charged play which focuses on the plight of a small group of dedicated Filipino artists during the twilight years of their careers. The play also takes us into a glimpse of a lost era in Philippine cultural history: the stageshows called the bodabil and where these artists are torn between their love for the art and economic survival.

Mario O’Hara’s Stageshow topbills the talent and versatility of TP veterans — stage/film/TV actors Shamaine Centenera-Buencamino and Nonie Buencamino, with Liesl Batucan and Roeder Camañag who will act as alternates. Joining the cast are Angelina Kanapi, Mae Paner, May Bayot de Castro, Rayna Reyes, Rody Vera,

Lou Veloso, Gie Onida, Pam Hundana, Gino Ramirez, Jonathan Tadioan, April Iñigo, Tara Cabaero, Hazel Maranan, Kaye Garcia, Agnes Sarreal, Anthony Falcon and Aaron Ching.

Directed by Chris Millado, Tanghalang Pilipino will also honor these stageshow artists in a “Gabi ng Pagkilala sa mga Beterano ng Stageshow” on Oct. 13, 2012. The play is also an official entry to the National Theater Festival in November.
