Bahay Trese is a collective effort of World Fun, Lightbulb Moments Entertainment in partnership with Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA), in introducing immersive theater experience. During the press presentation last Oct 27, 2015 at Bahay Trese itself on the 4th Floor of Sta.Lucia Mall, PETA Artistic Director Maribel Legarda explain to us the whole idea of Bahay Trese that really have historical background, they want to create an interaction by not only watching the actors who are making a scene, but you as a guest must do something to make the experience more enjoyable.

Three to four sets of actors are scheduled in a daily basis for Bahay Trese, of course train by Peta. Impressive production design was made by Boni Juan, lighting that add to your fear is by Jonjon Villareal, and sound design by Jethro Joaquin.

World of Fun have many branches in the Country but they choose to put Bahay Trese in Sta.Lucia mall since it’s their biggest branch so far.  Bahay Trese is open daily from 3pm to 9pm at World of Fun in Sta.Lucia Mall, for more info visit www.bahaytrese.com.ph
