Starting today up to May 11, Gantimpala Theater will hold the 2013 Summer Musical Theater Workshop for teens and young adults.
Gantimpala Theater is 36-year-old dramatic arts company with a theater season of the Four Classics such as “Florante at Laura”, “Kanser (Noli Me Tangere)”, “Ibong Adarna” and “El Filibusterismo”; also the historical drama “Katipunan: Mga Anak ng Bayan” and the children’s Filipino musical “Ang Prinsepe at ang Pulubi”.
Once headed by the late theater icon Tony Espejo, the company has yielded talents like Joel Lamangan, Jose Javier Reyes, Soxie Topacio, Bonifacio Ilagan, Ed Maranan, Jose Victor Torres, Jose Dennis Teodosio, Lou Veloso, Arnell Ignacio, Manny Castañeda, Beverly Salviejo, Tessie Tomas, Ricky Davao, Tommy Abuel and Pen Medina.
Classes, which are every Monday, Wednesday and Friday, 1 p.m. to 5 p.m., will teach workshop participants how to act, sing and dance in musical theater production, under the guidance of singer and director Roeder Camañag.
“If you really are serious and passionate about acting then enroll in my class. There are lots of things to learn and discover not just acting techniques, also lessons in life that will make you a better person. I believe that art is created so that we can all be better human beings,” Camañag says.
Enrollment is ongoing at the 2nd floor of the Open-Air Auditorium building, in Luneta, Manila. Tuition fee is P5,000. This year’s summer workshop is in partnership with Santa Isabel College, Manila and the National Parks Development Committee (NPDC).
