The much awaited event doubles as its 10th anniversary, so expect an even bigger celebration this year! Celebrated sculptor Daniel de la Cruz will be joining to showcase an installation of life-size wax figures, which depict slow-burning candle men.

Repertory Philippines continues its season with Stepping Out, opening on April 1, 8 p.m., at the OnStage Theater. The production tells the story of one man and seven women of different ages, physical attributes, and backgrounds who meet once a week at a tap-dance class to “let go.” They have varying degrees of talent and determination. As they rehearse for a benefit concert, their stories and issues surface until they all come together in a final grand number. Tickets are priced at P418, P627, and P836. The production runs through April 24.
