You can find three university-based productions across three different universities this March. Get to know more about them below.

1. Agnoia by FEU Theater Guild


The FEU Theater Guild currently stages Liza Magtoto’s Agnoia, a play inspired by Eli Rueda Guieb III’s short story Horoscope. Agnoia delves into the fateful webbing of relationships and destiny, where themes of love and circumstance take on the characters of the Zodiac signs. Horoscopes, behaviours, responses, affairs, and fates are woven together, revealing an intricate waltz of pronoia and agnoia.

First performed in FEU in 2013, the current staging takes on a more intimate setting. In honor of the organization’s 90th theater season, Dudz Teraña, the Artistic Director of the FTG, intends the current restaging to be an intimate encapsulation of the organization’s legacy.

“The way I created it [Agnoia], it was a really big production with lots of movement. Pero ngayon, I want to focus more on the text…on the acting…I wanted to highlight the celebration of the organization and not the play itself. The people who worked behind FEU Theater Guild all throughout the years.”

The cast includes: RB Pascua (IAS ‘25), Arvin Javier (IAS ‘26), and Aaron Bayani (FIT ‘25) as Taurus, Martin Falqueza (IAS ‘24) and Kirstan Orbegoso (IAS ‘26) as Gemini, Drea Achas (IAS ‘24) and Dianne Andallo (ITHM ’26) as Cancer, Arvin Javier (IAS ’26) and Aaron Bayani as Leo, Maria Mayano (IAS’26)  as Virgo, Meldy Malig (IAS’24) and Kesiah Aritao (IAS ’25) as Libra, Davewyn Macawile (IAS’25) and Jonas Cunanan (IAS ’25) as Scorpio, Adam Labador (IARFA ’26) and John Cedric Guevarra (IABF ‘27) as Sagittarius, Brigitta Marilla (IAS ‘25) and Evonne Gutierrez (IAS ‘27) as Capricorn, Caleb Flores (IAS ‘26) and Jharelle Villalobos (IHSN ‘26)  as Aquarius, Julia Ramas (FIT ’26) and Jazzie Alejo (ITHM ’24) as Pisces, along with an additional transitionist character played by Lorenze Moral (IAS ‘26) and Renz Vanneze Dotillos (IAS ‘26).

2. Nay, May Dala Akong Pancit by Dulaang ROC (UA&P)


UA&P’s Dulaang Rock Opera Company will be staging Juan Ekis’ Nay, May Dala Akong Pancit for its annual major production. The play is a time-loop narrative that centers around the Filipino habit of apologizing through food; the narrative unfolding with each loop.

The show will run from March 20-22 at 8pm, March 23 at 3pm and 8pm, April 3-5 at 8pm, and April 6 at 3pm and 8pm at the Telengtan Hall of UA&P. The show is directed by Ria Manalese.

3. DuLa Salle 2k23 Paroo’t Parito by DLSU Harlequin Theatre Guild


DLSU Harlequin Theater Guild premieres a new production from the series of original plays written by former DLSU-Manila professor and Nueva Vizcaya native, Dr. Anne Richie Balgos, entitled DuLa Salle 2k23 Paroo’t Parito.

The production brings to life Nueva Vizcaya’s thriving cultural narratives through four one-act plays to be staged from March 20 to 23, 2024, at the Teresa Yuchengco Auditorium of De La Salle University Manila. 

Alongside its Artistic Director, Romualdo “Raffy” Tejada, student directors and homegrown talents of DLSU-HTG weave stories from the province’s existing environmental and socio-political conditions. Each narrative aims to illuminate the experiences of women and children in Nueva Vizcaya as they triumph against socio-cultural expectations and environmental adversities.

Amplifying Novo Vizcayano voices, the production explores genres of fantasy, comedy, and drama that aim to deliver vibrant stories on the lives of communities surviving under unethical mining practices, the tension of one’s cultural identity and social mobility, the essence of motherhood across different generations, and the significance of familial values amid uncertainties.

Tickets for DuLa Salle 2k23 Paroo’t Parito can be purchased online for P350 via Ticket2Me. For further inquiries, contact Evie Clemente at 09178458831 or through DLSU-HTG’s Facebook page.
