CITY OF SAN FERNANDO – A musical featuring a day in the life of a modern teenage girl will be staged at the Villa Magdalena Convention Center in Macabebe, Pampanga on October 5 and 6.
“Sikat na Si Kat” the musical is the story of a girl in the age of the superficial world of social media. Lost in chasing the trend, an unimagined incident changes her world forever.
It was learned that the production design elements of the play are all recycled materials from the props, costume and set design.
The musical play was conceptualized and directed by film/advertising/theatre director Carl Angelo Ruiz and its production designed by Kapampangan crafter and artist, Mikai Tuazon.
The cast and staff of the play are all members of the Ministry on Liturgy of the Holy Family Parish, Colgante, Apalit – altar servers, choir, lector and commentators – who went through a four-month long theatre drama workshop under the supervision of the play’s director.
“Ang palabas na ito ay isang magandang tugon sa tawag ng ating panahon kung saan sa social media halos umiikot ang araw ng maraming mga tao, lalo na ang kabataan,” said Ruiz.
The project was initiated by Rev. Fr. Norman Vitug and produced by the Parish Pastoral Council of the Holy Family Parish and Colgante, Apalit, Pampanga in cooperation with the Archdiocese of San Fernando to fund the year-long project for the less fortunate brothers and sisters.
