Coming Back to the Stage

Aug 13, 2017 by

My best years as a musical theater performer were spent in Colegio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus. I was given the chance to perform some of the best roles an actor could dream of:

Lumiere in Beauty and the Beast | Genie in Aladdin | Rafiki in The Lion King | Wang Ta in Flower Drum Song | Ramon in Happy Feet | And as Company Member for the sarzuela, Juanita Cruz

I worked with the best people in the industry and I have learned so much in every bit of the way. I had the opportunity to perform with some of the greatest talents in Iloilo and I was only too thankful that in almost a decade of packing the theater of Sagrado, Our Lady’s Hall, with audiences young and old, we had the best memories on and off the stage. It was truly my definitive years as an artist and as a human being.

This coming September, Colegio del Sagrado Corazon de Jesus is celebrating its centennial year. The Daughters of Charity commemorates Sagrado’s 100 years of service and community formation through the Vincentian brand of education. I am proud to have been molded by this institution as a young educator after my university college years. Part of the centennial celebration is the much-awaited staging of 100 Years of Sacred Gifts: The CSCJ Musical Gala featuring some of the original artists of the many productions Sagrado has staged. I am honored to be a part of this momentous celebration.

The CSCJ Musical Gala will be a walk down Sagrado’s memory lane, covering several periods of Sagrado’s musical theater history — Sagrado is acknowledged to be Iloilo’s seat of musical theater in the 70s, and the only school with a symphony orchestra back in the 80’s. This and more, are enough reasons to celebrate.

Excited to be performing onstage again!
