Repertory Philippines for 2012

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:

Next Fall

Jan 13-Feb 5, 2012

Synopsis     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

Leading Ladies
Feb 10- Mar 4, 2012

Synopsis     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

Synopsis     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

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 Scarecrow, a Tin Woodsman and a Cowardly Lion who help her on her journey to avoid the clutches of the Wicked Witch Of The West.

Camp Rock: The Musical

PhotobucketSynopsis     This summer at camp was supposed to be all about the music and having the time of their lives. But the new, flashy Camp Star across the lake now threatens Camp Rock’s very existence. To keep the doors open, Mitchie steps up, rallies her fellow Camp Rockers, and gets them into top shape for the ultimate showdown! This new musical based on the hit Disney Channel Original Movie Camp Rock and upcoming Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam will fire up your stage with over a dozen songs, including “This Is Me,” “Can’t Back Down,” “It’s On,” and “We Rock.”

Camp Rock: The Musical" a stage adaptation of the Disney Channel's "Camp Rock" films that focuses on the storyline of the Disney Channel's "Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam" and features four songs from Camp Rock (2008) and ten songs from Camp Rock 2: The Final Jam (2010).

"This adaptation affords kids and tweens the opportunity to experience 'Camp Rock' in a deeper way while the movie's strong theme of working together to achieve results echoes the experience of putting on a stage show.

We took the hit songs and engaging storyline from the popular Disney Channel movies and crafted a theatrical version that students will be able to mount on stage in their own hometowns. This new licensing opportunity will provide countless young people with an introduction to the world of theatre, which is incredibly gratifying.”
