Newsies Choreographer PJ Rebullida to Play Albert in Musical’s Closing Weekend

Newsies Choreographer PJ Rebullida to Play Albert in Musical’s Closing Weekend

Share this article

PJ Rebullida has done it! Together with director Robbie Guevara, he has converted a talented cast into formidable  triple threats in no less than one of Disney’s most popular franchises.

After leading a 6-week, six-hour, five-days-a-week intensive dance bootcamp called “Training Ground”, and mounting a 4-weekend month-long run at the Globe Iconic Store with the show’s artistic team, one would think that Rebullida will finally put his feet up and take a break. But just like the show’s over-all message, he chooses to #SeizetheDay and perform on stage in the show’s closing weekend. He will be doing the role of  Albert, a Newsie that has been played by ballet soloist and now musical theater artist Ian Ocampo for the past 3 weekends.

“The best part is being onstage again.”, Rebullida said. “I am full now as choreographer. I haven’t been hired as a performer in quite awhile. It is thrilling to perform in a musical again.”

How does he feel now that the musical’s finally closing? “I think I will be a crying mess on closing night, he says laughing. “We all worked so hard and had our fair share of struggles. I have found that I love all the people who are part of this show and we share that. We will be Newsies forever. But, yeah, Sunday will be a crying fest.”

Disney’s Newsies is a production of Globe Live & 9 Works Theatrical. You can catch PJ Rebullida and the rest of the Newsies on their final weekend from July 28-30, 8pm at the Globe Iconic Store Bonifacio High Street Amphitheater. You can buy tickets HERE.
