This collaboration of theatre artists aims to provide them with the opportunity to develop and exhibit their material on the Rep stage. forArtists will also highlight Repertory Philippines' thrust in building a theater industry that can provide actors, directors, designers, choreographers, musicians, dancers, and all those who would like to work in theater the opportunity to do so.

Tickets are at P250 on a first-come, first-served basis. "Showcase" happens on Friday, October 17, 2008, 7:30-10 p.m., at OnStage Theatre, Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas, Makati.
