“RAK OF AEGIS” (December Shows)

RAK OF AEGIS IS BACK FOR A LIMITED 12-SHOW RUN AT THE PETA THEATER CENTER THIS DECEMBER! A rock comedy musical using the songs of Aegis will tackle Filipino resilience, or how the country faces and resolves compromising situations, whether this be a natural disaster or a broken heart. S et in a subdivision that has been flooded for two months, “Rock of Aegis” will revolve around the love interests of the main characters, whose names are derived from those of Aegis band members as a tribute to the Filipino novelty rock group that made waves 90’s.

PETA’s hit rap-musical familiarizes the youth with the brilliance on Shakespeare’s works and reinvents the Bard using rap rhythm and hip-hop beats. This award-winning musical touches on themes of adolescence, parents’ unconditional love, and friendship. It also promotes respect for teachers and classmates, and advocates love for literature–Shakespeare or not.
