Teatro Kolehiyo ng Miriam (TKM) is producing its first-ever musical with Soc Delos Reyes’ Sinagtala. Ricardo Magno, a former member of Tanghalang Pilipino’s Actors Company, will be directing and choreographing the production, with musical direction by Krina Cayabyab.
The production will be set at the heart of the mini forest in Miriam College.
Sinagtala revolves within the parallel lives of two worlds—fantasy and reality, and how they are connected through similar struggles and triumphs. The plot follows the young girl Tala, who battles the pressing issues in her environment and her quest for survival. The story is very much relevant to the present situation of our country that leads to grave human rights violations, causing oppression and further gap in our nation. This production could be a powerful medium that may remind, confront, discuss, and offer possible solutions towards responsible Filipino citizenship.
