About The Show
Sa Wakas is a critically acclaimed, homegrown musical based on the songs of one of the country’s most beloved rock bands, Sugarfree. Co-written by Andrei Nikolai Pamintuan and Mariane Abuan, with the music beautifully arranged by Ejay Yatco, Sa Wakas was one of the first to bring together the world of pop rock and theater in one groundbreaking musical. The show is created and produced by Charissa Pammit and is presented with the Manila Fringe Festival.
A bittersweet story set in contemporary Manila, Sa Wakas raises the timeless question of why relationships fall apart. What makes the show unique is its unconventional perspective, adopting an inverse chronology wherein the narrative begins at the end of the crushing breakup and works its agonizing way backwards to the relationship’s starry-eyed beginning.
Sugarfree was an alternative rock group that was formed in 1999 and composed of Ebe Dancel (lead vocals/guitar) Jal Taguibao (bass/backup vocals) and Kaka Quisimbing (drums) who replaced Mitch Singson (drums) in 2006. Together, they released five albums: Sa Wakas (2003), Dramachine(2004), Tala-Arawan (2006), Sugarfree Live! with the Manila Symphony Orchestra (2008), and Mornings and Airports (2009). They spawned a variety of pop rock hits such as “Mariposa”, “Burnout”, “Wag Ka Nang Umiyak”, “Tulog Na”, “Hari ng Sablay” and “Makita Kang Muli”.
The group sadly disbanded in 2011, and held their memorable farewell concert “Paalam Pilipinas” in a rainy yet jam-packed Eastwood Plaza. Ebe Dancel now continues to make music as a solo artist under Star Records and has recently launched his album with the hit single, “Bawat Daan” – the very same one he composed for the musical back in 2013.
Sa Wakas aims to re-introduce these heart-wrenching songs to a new generation and present it with a fresh and distinct “broadway-fied” sound.
