RAK OF AEGIS

RAK IS BACK! Following its 50th year, the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) stages once more its iconic, Filipino musical phenomenon, “Rak of Aegis,” for 77 shows comprising its sixth run, with performances beginning on June 20 until September 2, 2018 at The PETA Theater Center.

Featuring songs from the popular 90’s band, Aegis, the play tells the story of Aileen, a young girl with a big voice who dreams of having her video uploaded on YouTube to become viral and eventually be discovered by the big shots. While Aileen’s motives at first seem shallow, she later reveals that it is because she wants the world to know of her barangay’s condition: submerged in flood for almost three months, with their livelihood and health all slowly drifting off with the waters.

After three years, five runs, and more than 200 shows, “Rak of Aegis” presented a lot of breakthroughs for PETA, OPM, and Philippine theater. How it aged and its achievements are best captured by the Aegis lyric, “sintamis ng wine, sintatag ng sunshine” – a fitting description for the Pinoy hit musical that started it all!

“Rak of Aegis” has grown to be a monumental success. It has brought audiences from different age brackets and professions, luring everyone to the theater – thanks to the classic that is Aegis’ music!

Audiences old and new are in for a treat. For Rak’s 6th Season, it is kicking things off with Rak of Aegis Hu Got Talent, in a search to feature fresh, new faces for the coveted roles of Aileen, Jewel, Tolits, and Kenny.

Aside from new additions, the theater favorites to the theater to reprise their roles are Kim Molina, Isay Alvarez-Seña, Sweet Plantado–Tiongson, Shiela Valderrama-Martinez, Carla Guevara–Laforteza, Robert Seña, OJ Mariano, Renz Verano, Lorenz Martinez, Jerald Napoles, Pepe Herrera, Joshua Bulot, Myke Salomon, Poppert Bernadas, Vince Lim, Neomi Gonzales, Kakai Bautista, Joann Co, Gie Onida, Juliene Mendoza, Ron Alfonso, Phi Palmos, Jimmy Marquez, Roi Calilong, Gimbey dela Cruz, Gio Gahol, Carlon Matobato, John Moran, Gab Pangilinan, Paeng Sudayan, Abi Sulit, Teetin Villanueva and Gold Villar.
