To be launched in the Philippines this November 2010 is “DragonTales,” a new musical produced by Asia On Stage that brings together the best creative minds of the Philippines and Singapore.
Nine of the show’s 10 actors are Filipino, most of whom are active names in the theater and television industries today: Kalila Aguilos, Banaue Miclat, Miguel Vasquez, Nar Cabico, Meann Espinosa, Lex Marcos, Carlon Matobato, Joel Molina and Neomi Tabanao-Gonzales.
Playing a key role as Miki is Gani Karim, a performer, choreographer and arts educator in his native Singapore.
The story revolves around a struggling writer, Miki who tells the tale of a magical Dragon Realm where his two alter egos, a young, impatient dragon, Tazarek (Miguel Vasquez), and his king-to-be half-brother, Siu Long (Joel Molina) fight to claim the dragon throne. Their battle reopens the wounds of their family’s past and the larger secrets of the Dragon Realm.
“DragonTales” runs November 27-December 5 at the PETA Theater Center. For advance reservations and bookings, call (63-2) 8810984, 0917-5562718 or 0915-2957550, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
