Teatro Tomasino, the first and only recognized university-wide theater guild of the University of Santo Tomas, presents this April “Ang Favorite Book ni Jude,” a stage play based on Bob Ong’s popular 2003 novel “Ang Paboritong Libro ni Hudas.” It is the group’s second offering for its 38th season.
In a press release, the group explained that the play “conveys a socio-political and quasi-religious message through exploring the life of the protagonist Jude as he struggles to find redemption of faith in his experience of the afterlife.”
The stage play is directed by Ron Biñas and was adapted for the stage by Eljay Castro Deldoc. Also helping out in the production are the following: Io Balanon for set and props, D Cortezano for lighting, and Philstage Gawad Buhay 2014 awardee Carlo V. Pagunaling for costume and makeup.
The stage play runs from April 20 to 22, 2016, with shows at 10 A.M., 1 P.M., 4 P.M., and 7 P.M., at the Albertus Magnus Auditorium of the University of Santo Tomas. Interested parties may contact Jenny Gatus at 0906-2369492 for ticket inquiries or visit Teatro Tomasino’s Facebook page.
