It has been almost 7 years since the Master Rapper Francis Magalona passed away because of leukemia but his music and legacy continue, and now PETA Theater will be paying tribute to his music with the original futuristic musical entitled “3 Stars and a Sun”. The musical marks the 48th theater season of The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) and will be featuring the music of Francis M. It will run from February 4 to March 6, 2016; Tuesdays-Thursdays (8:00pm) and Friday-Sunday (3:00pm & 8:00pm) at the PETA Theater Center in No. 5 Eymard Drive New Manila, Quezon City.
“3 Stars and a Sun” shows the aftermath of the 2026 nuclear bomb explosion where survivors needed to live in the Stormdome, a fallout shelter made from durable steel at the same time to protect the inhabitants from the dangers of the outside world. This is the future Philippines and 70 years after the Stormdome is now equipped with millions of hidden cameras that keep track of the citizens and maintain peace and order.
Two barkadas will clash inside The Stormdome: the kids form glossy and developed Lumino City led by smug slacker Chino, and the kids from the rough streets of Diliman City led by fiery trouble-maker Sol. Despite their varied backgrounds and upbringing, both groups must realize that there are larger problems in Pinasland than their petty gang issues.
The musical will feature iconic songs of Francis., some were rearranged to fully express the emotions and set up of the musical. Cast included are Nicco Manalo and Gold Villar as the fiery gang leader Sol. Paolo Valenciano and Gio Gahol alternate as the smug slacker Chino, joined by Justine Peña and Giannina Ocampo as Diane. Che Ramos-Cosio and Carla Guevara Laforteza portrays the rogue Vidame Inky while Bodjie Pascua and Raffy Tejada share the role of Mang Okik. They are joined by a strong slew of young theater talents, Anna Luna, Jet Barrun, John Moran, Nar Cabico, Lee Villoria, EJ Pepito, Anj Heruela, Gab Pangilinan, Jef Flores, Norbs Portales, Jason Barcial, Raflesia Bravo, Yesh Burce, Lance Busa, Roi Calilong, Gimbey dela Cruz, Nica Santiago, and Ian Segarra.
