The season auditions come on the heels of one of the summer traditions of Gantimpala Theater, its annual workshop, which ended recently with “ Ang Kinang ni Kahlim,” presented at the Theater Auditorium of Sta. Isabel University, last May 11, 2013.
“Ang Kinang ni Kahlim” was the culminating showcase of those who attended the Gantimpala workshops. Among the new actors featured in the recital were Alvin Duckert, Aljonas Ponio, Macson Anthony Macaraig, Ayana Beatrice Poblete, Jayson Carl Santos, Andrea Mariana De Leon and Kristel Rose Alcazar.
The recital production received appreciative applause from the audience; Jun F. Flavier Pablo, chairman and president of Gantimpala Theater, and Sr. Araceli Loredo of Sta. Isabel University, were also in attendance.
In his short speech, Pablo said: “I am very much impressed with the good job done. I hope that that after your workshop experience with us, you continue to enhance your skills and pursue what you have started. I know that this signals the beginning of your life-long love affair with the theater.”
