From Broadway to Manila, STOMP makes its way back onto the Philippine stage from June 17 to 22 at the Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo in CCP.


STOMP is a high-energy, percussive symphony, coupled with dance, played entirely on unconventional instruments, such as garbage can lids, buckets, brooms, and sticks. It is a movement of bodies, objects, sounds - even abstract ideas, made completely original through the use of everyday objects in totally non-traditional ways.


Tickets are priced from P800 to P5,500, depending on the section and the performance date.

Here’s your second chance to catch Rak of Aegis! Catch its re-run from June 20 to August 31 at the PETA Theater Center.


The highly anticipated new musical will feature the chart-topping songs of Aegis, such as "Luha," "Halik," "Sundot," "Christmas Bonus," and "Basang-basa sa Ulan" performed by a mix of talented theater artists.


A story of love, fame and resilience, the narrative revolves around the residents of the flooded village of Villa Venizia. At the center of the story is Aileen (Aicelle Santos, alternating with Joan Bugcat) a young mall promodizer caught in the web of finding love and seeking fame to support her family.

Like the other residents, Aileen's family is greatly affected by the flood. Her father Kiel is in the brink of losing his job asbaranggay captain. Mary Jane (Isay Alvarez-Seña) plans to close her failing shoe factory. Knowing her income will never be enough to make ends meet, Aileen decides to make a video of herself in the hopes of becoming the next YouTube sensation. Aileen’s suitor Tolits (Jerald Napoles, alternating with Pepe Herrera) posts the video online, unaware that it will put Villa Venizia in the spotlight and change their lives forever.

Tickets are priced from P800 to P1500, depending on the performance date.
