Premieres new production PETA Laboratory A and B KTX.PH STREAMS PETA SHOWS

 



The best of Philippine theater comes to homes as KTX.PH streams Philippine Educational Theater Association’s (PETA) musicals from November 27 to December 6.

 


Ten years since its maiden staging, the hit musical "Care Divas" is back to make audiences laugh and cry as it brings the struggles and funny adventures of a group of caregivers in Israel.

 

Get reacquainted with Chelsea (Melvin Lee), Shai (Vincent De Jesus and Ron Alfonso), Thalia (Dudz Teraña and Jason Barcial), Kayla (Gio Gahol, Jerald Napoles, and Ricci Chan), and Jonee (Thou Reyes and Phil Noble), OFWs who trade the scrubs they wear by day with fabulous, shimmering outfits as they transform into drag queens by night.

 


Relive the glory of the Palanca Award-winning musical “1896,” PETA’s first and only purely sung musical production. Staged in the run-up to the Philippine centennial celebrations in 1998, it starred Ariel Rivera as Emilio Jacinto, Rody Vera as Andres Bonifacio, and Bodjie Pascua/Lionel Guico as Emilio Aguinaldo and Noel Cabangon as Jose Rizal. It was directed by one of the country’s theater greats, the late Soxie Topacio, and written by Charley dela Paz with music from Lucien Letaba.

 


"Si Juan Tamad, Ang Diyablo at ang Limang Milyong Boto,” Vincent De Jesus’ timely theatrical take on social consciousness, brings the story of the young and first-time voter Juan Tamad.  Lapsing into apathy after his candidate loses, Juan Tamad is transformed by circumstances to become the pro-active Juan Tama. Lessons in the electoral process and good governance abound in this comedic production directed by Phil Noble.

 

Those looking for fresh productions can catch the premiere of PETA Laboratory Sets A and B, two new collections of plays that mirror pandemic-era Philippines, bringing into focus the new normal that Filipinos must live with—from mask-wearing, working from home, to the grim reality of isolation.

 


Meanwhile, PETA’s stories of survival and the people who have labored to keep the story of the country’s groundbreaking theater company alive take the spotlight in "Living Voices." This documentary brings together the living voices from the company’s different generations—from its conception to its triumphs and trials.

 

These theatrical productions follow the successful previous KTX.PH offerings - Jed Madela's "New Normal," JaMill's "Tayo Hanggang Dulo," K Brosas' “20k20," "Hello Stranger: Finale Fancon," "Apollo: A Daniel Padilla Digital Experience," "The House Arrest Of Us," "U-Turn" and other special exclusive events

 

Watch out for more exciting experiences on KTX.PH.
