Disney BEAUTY and the BEAST

The Original Broadway Musical Spectacular
Disney BEAUTY and the BEAST

Disney Theatrical Productions, NETworks, Broadway Entertainment Group, and Ovation Productions will present the first International Tour of Disney’s Beauty and the Beast in celebration of the production’s 20th anniversary.


Poster

The tour will play in markets to include Indonesia, Kazakhstan, Philippines, Singapore, Thailand, Turkey, and the United Arab Emirates. The musical, which will reunite the original Broadway creative, will be seen for the first time in these territories. For Manila, Beauty and the Beast will be handled by veteran concert promoter Renen de Guia of Ovation Productions which is, coincidentally, celebrating anniversary this year. Venue is the Cultural Center of the Philippines (CCP) main theater and its 35th dates are in January 2015.

Beauty and the Beast is “the classic story of Belle, a young woman in a provincial town, and the Beast, who is really a young prince trapped in a spell placed by an enchantress. If the Beast can learn to love and be loved, the curse will end and he will be transformed to his former self. But time is running out. If the Beast does not learn his lesson soon, he and his household will be doomed for all eternity.”

The show is sure to capture the hearts of the Filipino audience. Adults and children of all ages will enjoy this love story full of romance, humor, magic, mystery, and suspense. It is a wonderful way to introduce children to the wonders of Broadway entertainment, but has something to appeal to all audiences, male and female, young and old. The musical ran on Broadway for 5,461 performances between 1994 and 2007, becoming one of Broadway’s longest running productions in history.

The production is directed by Rob Roth and choreographed by Matt West. It features costume design by Tony Award winning Ann Hould-Ward, lighting design by Natasha Katz, scenic design by Stanley A. Meyer, sound design by John Petrafesa Jr., and music supervision by Michael Kosarin. There is also music by Alan Menken, lyrics by Howard Ashman, a book by Linda Woolverton, and additional songs with music by Menken and lyrics by Tim Rice.

“ PINOCCHIO ” CHILDREN’S MUSICAL OPENS ON AUGUST 16

Pinocchio Opens on August 16
In celebration of its 22 years of producing well-loved musicals for children of all ages, Repertory Philippines Theater for Young Audiences proudly announces the staging of PINOCCHIO - the story of that familiar wooden puppet whose nose grew  when he told a lie.


Originally written by Carlo Collodi  as a serial in 1881, Le avventure di Pinocchio (The Adventures of Pinocchio), it has been one of the most famous stories in children’s literature and one of the most adapted.  Perhaps the most popular adaptation was the one by Walt Disney.  This more current adaptation is by Jim Eiler with music by Jim Eiler and Jeanne Bargy for the Prince Street Players, Ltd. 
Set in Italy, this is the beloved tale of Pinocchio, a life-sized puppet created by the caring puppet maker, Geppetto. Knowing of his longing for a son, the Blue Fairy brings Pinocchio to life as a reward for Geppetto's remarkably generous spirit. The Blue Fairy promises Pinocchio that if he always obeys his father, someday he would become a real boy. But the best laid plans can sometimes go awry and Pinocchio's boyish longings lead him away from his father and on an adventure unlike any other. Hurtled from the Land of The Toys to the belly of a giant, Italian-speaking whale, Pinocchio learns that no love is greater than that of a parent for a child.


Ms. Joy Virata, artistic director of Repertory Philippines Theater  for  Young Audiences will direct PINOCCHIO. This marks the third time that  Repertory Philippines is staging the musical, the first two being in 1996 and 2004.
This new and fresh production of PINOCCHIO is going to be a real treat for the entire family with masks, music and merriment. It will be alive and bursting with energy. The children in the audience will be spellbound with its visually stunning and colorful set design and costumes, the lively choreography, and the witty songs and dialogue of Colodi’s comic characters.
For this production, the role of PINOCCHIO will be alternately performed by Albert Silos, Noel Comia, Daniel Drilon, Guido Gatmaytan, Sofie Wong and Andee Achacoso. Pinocchio’s character is the epitome of na├»ve innocence and is led into trouble time and time again because of it. He is a curious, impressionable, and a sincere young boy.


Miguel Faustmann, Oliver Usison and Nic Campos shall alternately play the role of GEPPETTO, a toy maker who is noticeably warm-hearted and caring.  He is constantly yearning for a son and wants nothing but the best for Pinocchio. 
Arnel Carrion, James Stacey and Nic Campos will alternately play the role of ANTONIO, the carpenter friend of Geppetto and the story's narrator. He will interact with the audience throughout the show with his inviting, engaging, energetic charm.
Natalie Everett, Ring Antonio and Gold Soon will alternately essay the role of ANGELINA, Geppetto’s housekeeper who cares deeply for Geppetto’s well being and possesses a loving rapport with him. 
Antonio Lane, George Schulze, and Jay Pangilinan  shall alternately tackle the role of CANDLEWICK, the young and rambunctious rule-breaker. With his bratty and mischievous attitude, he leads Pinocchio into trouble. 
Steven Conde, Thea Gloria, Cara Barredo and Vien Alen King will play GINO, Candlewick’s equally naughty sidekick who will also help Pinocchio disobey his father.


Liesl Batucan, Christine Flores and Cara Barredo will alternately play the role of the BLUE FAIRY, an omniscient presence and god-motherly figure. She looks out for and guides Pinocchio. She is kind, gentle, and generous to those who are pure of heart. 
Jef Flores, George Schulze and Onyl Torres will alternately play the role of SIGNORE VOLPONE, the ringleader of a sinister plot to exploit naive children. He operates as the "brains" of the operation and keeps Signore Gatto in his place. Portrayed as a fox, he is a dishonest thief with great cunning and craftiness.


Chino Veguillas, Steven Hotchkiss and Kendrick Ibasco will alternately bring to life the role of SIGNORE GATTO, the less intelligent sidekick of Signore Volpone. Portrayed as a cat, he is a dishonest thief and blindly follows his boss. 
Onyl Torres, Raul Montesa and Bituin Escalante will alternately play the role of the COACHMAN.
PINOCCHIO is set to open on August 16, 2014 at the Onstage Theater, 2/F, Greenbelt 1, Paseo de Roxas cor. Legazpi St., Makati City. The show runs until December 14, 2014.
A really brilliant musical for kids, PINOCCHIO promises to be a completely unique theatre experience --- a modern remix of the original story told with vim, verve, vibrancy with the overall message of the importance of good behavior !!!
