The original cast members of PETA’s OPM musical Rak of Aegis will be coming together for one night only to talk about what it’s like to work in the production.
The online discussion will be streamed on May 1, 8pm at the Open House Facebook page.

Rak of Aegis tells the story of Aileen, a young girl with a big voice who dreams of becoming a YouTube sensation. As she tries her hand at fulfilling her dream, she also finds herself in the position of helping her barangay battle health hazards and livelihood conditions amidst unceasing flood water.
The musical ran for 7 seasons, with its most recent run closing on on September 29, 2019. The show is directed by the company’s Artistic Director Maribel Legarda and written by Liza Magtoto (book).
