The Sandbox Collective’s staging of Ricky Lee and Vincent de Jesus’ “Himala: Isang Musikal”, which ran from February to March at the Power Mac Center Spotlight of Circuit Makati last year, is coming back for a rerun at the same venue this September.
FIRST LOOK: ‘Himala’ Cast Performs a Medley from the Iconic Musical
According to the company’s Artistic Director Toff de Venecia, everyone in the cast, except for David Ezra who played filmmaker Orly, is returning. This includes principal cast members Aicelle Santos as Elsa, Kakki Teodoro as Nimia, Neomi Gonzales as Chayong, Sandino Martin as Pilo, and Bituin Escalante as Aling Saling. Auditions will also be held in the next couple of months to cast new alternate cast members.
