YOYA X Vanicx Holiday Trunkshow
November 29 to December 1 (Casa Bella HQ)

Celebrate the holidays in style while still flaunting your unique combination of power and femininity by scoring glam-meets-utilitarian pieces at the #VanicxWearsYoya Shopping Party.

Organized by the Batch 2000 (the batch is named Vanicx) of the Immaculate Conception Academy, the three-day shopping party features creations from YOYA, a homegrown fashion label by Canada-based designer and ICA alumna Yoya Gueco. YOYA is a ready to wear womenswear brand designed for the independent-minded women who effortlessly stand out from the rest without being governed by the latest trends.

The trunk show will see YOYA unveil its first ever holiday collection, which underscores the essence of looking festive without being flamboyant. Each piece that will be produced in limited quantities is characterized by deep and bold colors, angular lines and a playful vibe combined with minimalist bent -- the perfect outfits for women on the lookout for holiday-ready looks in quiet elegance.

Proceeds from the sales will go to the ICA Batch 2000 (Vanicx) fund, which will be used for the ICA Alumni Association initiatives such as the ICA Scholarship Foundation, teacher assistance, and medical missions.

CATS, the Musical

On just one special night of the year, all Jellicle cats meet at the Jellicle Ball where Old Deuteronomy, their wise and benevolent leader, makes the Jellicle choice and announces which of them will go up to The Heaviside Layer and be reborn into a whole new Jellicle life.

CATS, one of the longest-running shows in West End and Broadway history, received its world premiere at the New London Theatre in 1981 where it played for 21 record-breaking years and almost 9,000 performances. The ground-breaking production was the winner of the Olivier and Evening Standard Awards for Best Musical. In 1983 the Broadway production became the recipient of seven Tony Awards including Best Musical and ran for 18 years.

The Quest For The Adarna
until January 26, 2020  (OnStage Theater, Greenbelt 1)

The peaceable and prosperous kingdom Berbania is ruled by the beloved King Fernando and his equally loved wife, Queen Valeriana. They are blessed with three sons – all mighty warriors. The eldest and heir to the throne is the pompous Prince Pedro; the second son is the dashing Prince Diego; and, the youngest, the kind-hearted Prince Juan.

Their idyllic life is shattered when King Fernando is struck down by a mysterious sickness and can only be healed by the song of the mythical bird, Adarna. Anyone wanting to capture her must travel to its home on Mount Tabor, a journey that is difficult and froth with danger.

Pedro goes to find the bird first, falls under the Adarna’s spell and fails. Diego follows and also fails. Juan succeeds where is brothers did not, captures the Adarna bird, and frees his brothers. But his brothers do not want Juan to be hailed a hero and crowned as king so Pedro and Diego plot against Juan and leave him to die on Mount Tabor. They bring the Adarna bird back to Berbania and receive all the glory. The King, however, remains ill because the Adarna refuses to sing.

Meanwhile, Juan is rescued by the Princess Maria Blanca of the Crystal Kingdom. They join forces to rescue Maria’s sisters from the seven-headed serpent then return to Berbania. As soon as Juan arrives at Berbania, the Adarna sings – the King is healed, wrongdoings are forgiven, relationships restored and love triumphs overall.
