Kim Molina plays Aileen in ‘Rak of Aegis’
Rosalinda L. Orosa (The Philippine Star) - July 21, 2014 - 12:00am

MANILA, Philippines - Senior Grand Champion Vocalist of the World Kimverlie “Kim” Molina stars in the Philippine Educational Theater Association’s (PETA) rerun of Rak of Aegis.

Kim alternates with break-out star Aicelle Santos, who discovered her in Ghost the musical, for the lead role Aileen. It will be her first lead role in a major production.

“I’m so excited to be part of this musical because I used to sing Aegis’ songs growing up,” Kim said.

Much like the character she plays, Kim is a loving daughter and a dreamer; she relates to Aileen’s hopes of making it big and helping her family.

Rak of Aegis tells the story of young promodizer Aileen, caught in the knee-deep flooded streets of barangay Venizia, who took a video of herself singing amid the floods and uploaded it on YouTube, all in the hopes of being discovered by Ellen Degeneres.

Written by Liza Magtoto and directed by PETA artistic director Maribel Legarda, Rak of Aegis is a playlist of chart-topping Aegis hits Luha, Basang-basa sa Ulan, to name a few, arranged by musical director Myke Salomon.

Kim is joined by new cast members Abi Sulit, Gab Pangilinan, Gio Gahol as the new members of the ensemble; Jimmy Marquez as Jewel; Oj Mariano as Kiel; and Arnell Ignacio as Fernan. Members from the original run such as Kalila Aguilos, Kakai Bautista, Neomi Gonzales, Jerald Napoles, Pepe Herrera, Myke Salomon, Poppert Bernadas, Nor Domingo, Julienne Mendoza, Ron Alfonso, Phillip Palmos, Gold Villar, Gimbey Dela Cruz, Jet Barrun, Paeng Sudayan, Carlon Matobato and John Moran are still part of the production.

Rak of Aegis runs until Aug. 31 every Thursday 8 p.m., Friday-Sunday 3 p.m. and 8 p.m.
