Kids Acts Philippines presents: Romeo & Juliet

Where Thou Art, Romeo?

THE Well love classic love story of the famous star crossed lovers Romeo and Juliet is now being staged as musical in Manila Theater by Kids Acts Philippines. It’s an adaptation solely based 100% on original story by the great William Shakespeare.  However it is simplified without sacrificing the original text so the young adults can understand and comprehend on how the play is written.

Edited with additional lyrics by Luigi Nacario and music by Eugene Belbis, Romeo is being played by Derrick Gozos and Gian Gloria as Juliet. It was staged in Star Theater of Star City last Oct 24 & 25, 2014 as initial season offering but will have a major full run in 2015. 

Earle Figuracion
Stage Actor Earle Figuracion who plays Mercutio and the understudy for Romeo caught our attention, he play his role really in character and shine well among the rest even just for a short appearance.  Other cast are Ces Dela Cruz as the nurse, Melisa Camba as Lady Capulet, Ina Salonga as Rosaline, Meyanne Plamenio as Lady Montague, Kendrick Ibasco as Tybalt, Terrence Guillermo as Lord Capulet,  and Jonathan Rabanzo as lord Montague.

The artistic team of Romeo and Juliet is composed of Belbis (Composer/Orchestration), Christian Bautista for the lighting design, Emma Doverte as the production manager, Stage Manager Jasvir Basra and overall direction by Nacario,

I haven't seen a Romeo and Juliet play but I'm a fan of the novel. I should watch plays more often so that I can see in action what the novel is all about.
