Sa Wakas: A New Pinoy Rock Musical


Here's another musical to look forward to by OPM music lovers out there! Especially to the fans of Sugarfree and musicals! Sa Wakas:A New Pinoy Rock Musical featuring the songs of Sugarfree!
   Sa Wakas is a new musical that weaves together the songs of one of the country’s most beloved rock bands, Sugarfree. Co-written by Andrei Nikolai Pamintuan and Mariane Abuan with the music beautifully arranged by EjayYatco, Sa Wakas promises to bring together the world of pop rock and musical theater in one groundbreaking show.



A bittersweet love story that chronicles the end of one relationship and the beginning of another, Sa Wakas raises the timeless question of why relationships fall apart. Thematically, it also explores the concept of how the choices we make in life define who we are as a person.

Their theme is so timely, perfect for summer dates and to those who want to spend their summer nights watching a good show.

    Sugarfree was an alternative rock group led by Ebe Dancel that gave u sbeloved hits such as Mariposa, Burnout, ‘Wag Ka Nang Umiyak, Hari ng Sablay and Makita Kang Muli. Though the group sadly disbanded in 2011, their music still resonates today and will forever be cherished by its legions of fans.

Sa Wakas, which incidentally is also the title of the band’s first album, aims to re-introduce these heart-wrenching songs to a new generation and present it with a fresh and distinct “Broadway-fied” sound. 

     I've known Sugarfree since I was a grade school student since their songs are frequently resonated through the radio and some of my fave's are "Tulog Na", "Makita Kang Muli" and the "after break-up" song, "Kung Ayaw Mo Na Sa Akin". And incidentally, when I was a freshie here in UP, I became a student of Prof. Jal Taguibao , the band's bassist! And I'm proud of it!

    
The company is proud to have in its roster the best and most talented young stars of Philippine theater.  The title character of Topper will be alternately played by Fred Lo (9 Works Theatrical’s Rent) and Vic Robinson (PETA’s Si Juan Tamad, Ang Dyablo at Ang Limang Milyong Boto, Batang Rizal). The role of Lexi will be played by Gawad Buhay Award winner Caisa Borromeo (Repertory Philippines’ Little Women) and Laura Cabochan (CCP’s Pasinaya and Ateneo Blue Repertory’s Edges). Free-spirited Gabbi will be played by Kyla Rivera (Repertory Philippines’ I Love You Because) and Justine Peña (Repertory Philippines’ Camp Rock). Also joining the cast are Mikou David, Abi Sulit, Hans Dimayuga, and Cassie Manalastas.
