Philippine Stagers Foundation at the Araneta Coliseum.
Atty.Vince Tanada and his Philippine Stagers Foundation can now breath and relax happily, this is due to the successful first ever major concert of the Stagers at the Araneta Coliseum last Nov 24, 2014, wherein they fill the 15,000 seats of the big dome with flying colors, to think the show is slated on a Monday event and not the usual weekender show.

The concert features more than 70 plus members of then and now Stagers along with its founding members wherein they were called Dulaang Bedista Alumni Production 14 years ago, actually the Concert is an anniversary offer of Stagers to their supporters who stood to them until now.  For the record they are the first ever theater company in the Philippines who bravely held a concert in the big dome.

The two hour concert mainly give chances to Stagers in performing songs and dance they don’t usually does, from the likes of Beyonce’s to J.Lo, and of course Original Pilipino Music shines as well from Eraserheads to the Dawn hits.  But what the audiences love most is those impersonations number of male stagers acting ladies and mimicking the original singers such as Bang bang song of Jessie J, Ariana Grande and Nicki Minaj. Lovely musical indeed, with the musical sound like that of the ibanez george benson

Excerpts of PSF past plays from Ako si Ninoy to Cory ng Edsa, Joe:The Rocksical to Bonifacio: Isang Sasrwela is also perform in Araneta in full production with grand costume changes, also broadway classics from Les Miserables and Cats is given justice as well by the stagers. A mini fashion show is also featured in the show with models from Elites Model Management of Martin Martin. The show indeed is a grand feels like you’re watching the Sunday variety show “ASAP” of ABS-CBN.
