Update, 5/22/20, 12:40pm: ABS-CBN Star Hunt has just announced that the online event will be postponed until further notice.

The cast of Tabing Ilog the Musical will be performing in a one night only online event entitled Mga Awit Mula sa Tabing Ilog the Musical.

The online initiative will feature the cast members singing the music from their homes, accompanied with live interactive segments and a few clips from the stage production itself.

The cast includes Kiara Takahashi, Abi Kassem, and Gab Pangilinan as Eds delos Santos, Teetin Villanueva, Lou Yanong, and Missy Quino as Corrine Ledesma, Justine Narciso, Krystal Kane, and Shawntel Cruz as Jerry Ricafort, Franco Ramos, Ian Hermogenes, and Art Guma as Ely, Noel Comia Jr., Brei Binuya, Lie Reposposa as Sammy Collantes, Miah Canton, Abby Trinidad, and Belle Delos Reyes as George Fuentebella, Ian Pangilinan, Sky Quizon, and Hanie Jarrar as Rovic Mercado, Vino Mabalot, Argel Saycon, and Elyson de Dios as Fonzy Ledesma, Batit Espiritu and Emjay Savilla as Badong Magtibay, and Jem Macatuno, Gian Wang, and Gabby Sarmiento as James Collantes.

Jojit Lorenzo, Paolo O’Hara, Joann Co, and Agot Isidro complete the adult cast. Vincent A. DeJesus serves as composer, lyricist, and musical director.

The musical opened last March 7 at the Dolphy Theater, but the scheduled run was cut short due to the Covid-19 pandemic.

Tabing Ilog the Musical is based on the ABS-CBN teen drama TV series entitled Tabing Ilog, which aired from 1999-2003. The show featured John Lloyd Cruz, Kaye Abad, Patrick Garcia, Paula Peralejo, Paolo Contis, Desiree del Valle, Baron Geisler, and Jodi Sta. Maria. It follows the coming of age story of six teenagers who, though from different backgrounds, find comfort in each other.

Mga Awit Mula sa Tabing Ilog the Musical will be streaming this Friday, 8pm at ABS-CBN Network Facebook Page!  The proceeds of this project will go to the Open House fundraising project.
