9 Works Theatrical, one of the Manila’s leading theater companies and the outfit behind hit musicals RENT, Songs For a New World, The Wedding Singer, Sweet Charity, and the recent critically-acclaimed family musical comedy, You’re a Good Man, Charlie Brown, in cooperation with The Rockwell Club, re-launches STAGE CAMP, its annual summer theater workshops, under the tagline “We
Make Your Dreams Come True.”
Now on its third year, STAGE CAMP has opened doors for several of its alumni to try their hand at professional theater. Since joining the acting workshop, theater actor Sarah Facuri, and sisters Becca and Rachel Coates have become part of Resorts World’s ongoing production of The Sound of Music.
STAGE CAMP alumnus Fran Jose was also recently part of 4th Wall’s Rivalry: The Ateneo-La Salle Musical and appeared in last year’s Seussical the Musical under Rep. Erik Lozano was seen in Kids Act’s Pinocchio while Joseph Perez in Tanghalang Pilipino’s Noli Me Tangere.
9 Works Theatrical Artistic Director Robbie Guevara shares, “I am so proud of what our alumni have gone on to do and accomplish with our esteemed colleagues in the professional theater scene, and even those who have continued to support theater and help out behind-the-scenes. Here’s hoping more doors
will open for our next batch.”
Running for a total of seven weeks at The Loft @ Manansala Tower, Rockwell Center, Makati from April 16 to June 3, Stage Camp is the perfect avenue to hone and develop one’s skills in singing, dancing, and acting, discover new talents, and make a ton of friends.
