(The Philippine Star) - December 30, 2013 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - The music of the legendary pop-rock band Aegis conquers the local theater scene as the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) closes its 46th Theater Season with “Rak of Aegis,” a Pinoy rock comedy-musical featuring the songs of Aegis. Opening Jan. 31 at The PETA Theater Center, “Rak of Aegis” will run for six weeks, on Fridays through Sundays until Mar. 9, 2014.

The highly anticipated new musical will feature chart-topping songs of the ‘90s Pinoy rock band Aegis, such as Luha, Halik, Sundot, Christmas Bonus and Basang-basa sa Ulan performed by a mix of talented theater artists led by Isay Alvarez-Seña, Robert Seña, Aicelle Santos and Joan Bugcat.

Cast members include Ro Alfonso, Jet Barrun, Kakai Bautista, Poppert Bernadas, Gimbey Dela Cruz, Neomi Gonzales, Pepe Herrera, Carlon Matobato, Julienne Mendoza, John Moran, Jerald Napoles, Gie Onida, Phillip Palmos, Myke Salomon, Paeng Sudayan and Gold Villar.

A story of love, fame and resilience, the narrative revolves around the residents of the flooded village of Villa Venizia. At the center of the story is Aileen (Aicelle Santos alternating with Joan Bugcat) a young mall promodizer caught in the web of finding love and seeking fame to support her family.

“Rak of Aegis” is a musical filled with visual spectacle showcasing the Pinoy’s natural love for music and innate resilience in the face of calamity. The musical is created by the same women behind PETA’s hit comedy musical “Care Divas,” PETA Artistic Director Maribel Legarda and Palanca Award-winning writer Liza Magtoto, with musical arrangement and musical direction by actor-musician Myke Salomon.

“Rak of Aegis” also consists of a talented artistic team that includes Gio Gahol (choreography), Jonjon Villareal (lighting design), Mio Infante (production design), Carlo Pagunaling (costume design), Maco Custodio (shoe design), and Joan Pamintuan (accessory design).  

The play runs from Jan. 31 to March 9, 2014 at The PETA Theater Center, 5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City. Shows run from Fridays-Sundays; Friday and Saturday at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. and Sundays at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m., except Feb. 23 with shows at 10 a.m. and 8 p.m. and March 2 at 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
