The 4th Wall Theatre Company
presents an original ED GATCHALIAN production

Ateneo - La Salle "THE MUSICAL"

Executive Producer, Composer & Musical Director: ED GATCHALIAN
Book & Direction: JAIME DEL MUNDO

The setting is 1968, when Ateneo and La Salle were still part of the NCAA with other schools such as Letran, San Beda, Mapua and Jose Rizal.

The story revolves around two families.

The Basilio family is headed by Green-blooded Demetrio and his wife, Dolores. They have a son, Tommy, who is the star basketball player of the La Salle Senior Basketball Team.

The other family is the Valencia family, led by Blue-blooded Papa Anton and his wife Andrea. By the way, Andrea and Dolores are sisters. There are two children in the Valencia family; Paco, who is the star player of the Ateneo Senior Basketball Team and Quito, a very passionate and active member of the Social Order Club, consistent Honor Student, Class President.

Despite belonging to opposing schools, Tommy Basilio and his cousin, Quito Valencia are the best of friends. Paco, however, despite being Tommy’s first cousin is not as friendly because they have been playing against each other in the NCAA for 3 years now. And in 1968, faced with the possibility of playing against each other for the NCAA Basketball Championship, the tension in the relationship of Tommy and Paco reaches an all-time high.

Quito has a silent love for a Maryknoller, Reena San Jose. This very natural emotion attracts a very complicated situation, which we would like you to know when you come and watch the musical when it formally opens.

The closeness of the cousins is not shared by their fathers. It seems on the surface that their long-standing personal feud is on account of their respective school loyalties. But towards the latter part of Act Two, the real issue was on account of how they dealt with a serious conflict in their professional careers. Realizing the futility of prolonging the feud, they decide to bury their hatchets.

In Act Two, academics continue to seem to be a rivalry issue. Social issues also awaken the sensitivities of both the Atenean and the La Sallite.

At the end, the reason for the rivalry becomes clear……..What is it? Who wins the girl? Who wins the Championship. These are questions that can only be answered when you come and watch this very interesting musical.
