BALUD (Bulan Artists League United for Drama) Theatre Company, a group of artists from Bulan, Sorsogon, is set to stage its second production following its maiden production, Nano Daw Kun, last November.

Entitled Dayaw, Sa Bilog na Bulan, the production is an original Waray-Sorsogon musical that will be staged from May 24-26, 2pm and 7pm, at the ALD Function Hall in Bulan, Sorsogon. Waray-Sorosogon (or Bikol-Bulan) is a vernacular spoken in Southern Sorsogon.

Sa kagustuhang makahanap ng kahit na anong aklat kung saan nasusulat ang pinagmulan ng kaniyang bayan, napadpad ang teenager na si Vincent sa isang sinaunang pamayanan na sumasamba sa buwan. Sa pakikipamuhay niya roon, matutuklasan niya ang kultura, tradisyon, at politika ng kaniyang mga ninuno bago pa dumating ang mga banyagang mananakop. Isang masayang paglalakbay sana ito para kay Vincent hanggang sa balutin ng takot ang pamayanan dahil ayon sa mga matatanda, mangyayari na ang pinakamalagim nilang panaginip. Muling mabubuhay ang Bakunawa na magdudulot ng delubyo sa kanila. Mapipilitan si Vincent na makipagsapalaran upang mailigtas ang pamayanan at upang lubos niyang makilala at maunawaan ang sarili at ang kaniyang kasalukuyan.

The cast features Eli Borlagdan, Io Frenzy Bautista, Mark Justine Pelenia, Haide Geralde, Maricris Gepiga, Glifford Gigantone, Maan Porcalla, Megan Aycocho, Aljo Alunan, Chase Gicaro, Jett Gutlay, Noel Oro, Kent Pagkaliwanagan, Exequiel Gipit, Arvin Garra, Rodlyn Althea Goyala, Princess Macoy, Joshua Godalle, Mark Luis Enteria, and Justin Mortega.

Dayaw, Sa Bilog na Bulan is written by Jan-Jan Mohametano (book and lyrics). At the helm is director Drew Espenocilla, who also serves as choreographer.

Joining them in the artistic team are Eli Borlagdan (musical direction), Angelica Dayao (musical arrangement), Chase Gicaro (production design), and Renee Liana Golimlim (lighting design), Clifford Morata (technical direction), Jan Lorens Grieta (assistant direction and stage management), Mark Luis Enteria (production management), and Drew Espenocilla (graphics).
