Resorts World Manila to stage Bituing Walang Ningning...The Musical

Spoiler: You could be the star of this show


( You are nothing. But a second-rate. Trying hard. Copycat! Splash of water to the face. Cherie Gil’s line has been said so many times, you would think it would lose its cutting brilliance. It’s never going to happen. There’s always a great opportunity to (mis)quote the immortal line from the classic movie Bituing Walang Ningning. It’s filled with all the goodies that make melodrama such a wonderful spectacle. The theatrics are just begging for a stage. Resorts World Manila and director Freddie Santos are about to fill that void.


It’s Cris Villonco’s turn to make a splash as Lavinia Arguelles (with Mark Bautista as her Nico Escobar) and you could be her Dorina Pineda. Cray? Of course it is. That’s why it’s fun.



Resorts World, Viva Communications Inc., and Full House Theater company are not only turning Nerissa Cabral’s timeless work of fiction into a musical (with brand new songs that will surely get you hooked), they’re also searching for a radiance from an unknown star. If you believe in your ninging (and you’re 16 to 20 years old), time to shine!



Auditions will be held on February 28 and March 1 at The Plaza in Newport Mall. For more information, log on to
