I am currently looking at the webpages of Repertory Philippines hoping to find some play interesting to watch just before the long weekend is over. And I noticed that their 2012 offering is now up. I can't help but be excited for next year.
Their line up are as follows:
Jan 13-Feb 5, 2012
A very moving story of a
gay couple agonizing over differences in their religious faiths. Luke
believes in God. Adam believes in everything else. "Next Fall" portrays
the ups and downs of this unlikely couple’s five-year relationship with
sharp humor and unflinching honesty. And when an accident changes
everything, Adam must turn to Luke’s family and friends for support… and
answers. "Next Fall" paints a beautiful and funny portrait of modern
romance, asking the hard questions about commitment and faith. But
ultimately, simply, it is about the transformative power of love.
Adam Bart Guingona
Luke David Bianco
Feb 10- Mar 4, 2012
Two English Shakespearean
actors are down-on-their-luck - so down-on-their-luck, in fact, that
they end up performing Shakespeare on the Moose Lodge circuit in
Pennsylvania's Amish Country. When they hear that an old lady in York,
PA is about to die and leave her fortune to her two long lost English
nephews, they resolve to pass themselves off as her beloved relatives
and get the cash. The trouble is, when they get to York, they find out
that the relatives aren't nephews, but nieces! Disastrous decisions and
romantic entanglements lead to hilarious comedy as Jack and Leo hatch a
plot to pass themselves off as two English women to scam the elderly
woman of her fortune.
Jekyll and Hyde
March 16-April 15, 2012
An evocative tale of the
epic battle between good and evil, Jekyll & Hyde is based on Robert
Louis Stevenson's classic story about a brilliant doctor whose
experiments with human personality create a murderous counterpart.
Convinced the cure for his father's mental illness lies in the
separation of Man's evil nature from his good, Dr. Henry Jekyll
unwittingly unleashes his own dark side, wreaking havoc in the streets
of late 19th century London as the savage, maniacal Edward Hyde.
A true musical theatre phenomenon! Jekyll & Hyde features the hit
song This Is The Moment, and attracted legions of loyal fans even before
the show began its smash-hit Broadway run.

The Wizard of Oz
Is there a soul alive who
has not been swept away by the wonder of L. Frank Baum's masterpiece?
After a tornado whisks away a young Kansas farm girl, Dorothy, to the
magical land of OZ, she starts her quest to find the mighty Wizard of Oz
who has the power to send her home. Along the way she teams up with a

journey to avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch Of The West.
