William, PETA’s rap musical, will be streaming again from March 5-6, 2021 on ticket2me.net. The production also recently streamed on the company’s Facebook page last April.
Written by Ron Capinding, William was first staged at the PETA Theater Center in 2011. It is set in a high school in Manila, where five young students are forced by their teacher to learn about Shakespeare. The youngsters eventually rediscover the beauty of the writer’s works while touching on typical themes of adolescence — love, friendship, parents, and the growing pains that come with these.
It is directed by PETA’s Artistic Director Maribel Legarda, with music by Jeff Hernandez and choreography by Urban Dance Crew’s John Tan. It has 10 original rap songs, including Pucha Bro, Nosebleed, O Shakespeare, and What’s in a Name.
The streaming cast features Meann Espinosa, Ian Segarra, Joan Bugcat, John Moran, Norbs Portales III, Anna Luna, Jojo Atienza, Cheeno Macaraig, Carlon Matobato, and Happy Constantino.
You can buy tickets at ticket2me.net for P120. The upcoming limited run is part of PETA’s Click and Play Stream Series for 2021.
