The Dressing Room
until November 25 (Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater)

After a successful run in 2016, Dulaang Unibersidad ng Pilipinas restages its critically-acclaimed production, “The Dressing Room: That Which Flows Away Ultimately Becomes Nostalgia” and its Filipino translation, “Ang Dressing Room: Kung Saan Lubusang Pangungulila ang Dulot ng Agos ng Panahon.”

In a time of reflection and recovery, the play echoes the aftermath of World War II in Japan in an ironically witty and melancholic way. The story follows the lives of four actresses preparing backstage while waiting for their cue to enter onstage. These actresses take turns telling their stories, each expressing an obsessive desire to perform the lead role, which ignites a comic yet dramatic narrative about shared memories that reveal their aspirations and frustrations.

The play runs from November 7 until 25 with an all-female cast (English) on 7, 8, 9 (7PM), 10, 11 (10AM AND 3PM), 21, 23 (7PM) 24 (3PM), 25 (10AM) and an all-male cast (Filipino) on 13, 14, 15, 16 (7PM),17, 18 (10AM AND 3PM), 22 (7PM), 24 (10AM), 25 (3PM) at the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, 2nd floor, Palma Hall, U.P. Diliman.

Rapunzel: A Very Hairy Fairy Tale

Visit an enchanted fairy tale land with dragons, a handsome prince, an evil would-be Queen, a really great hair stylist, and that famous princess with the long, long, long hair! 

Hold on to your hair and prepare for a brand new magical musical re-telling of the classic fairy tale! On the edge of glory, the evil Lady Za Za determines to rule the kingdom by keeping the beautiful Princess Rapunzel – with the long, long, long hair – trapped in a tower in the deep, dark, dank, dismal, dreary forest.

It’ll be up to Sir Roderick and his hair stylist friend Edgar (who is on a quest to find the perfect head of hair) to rescue Princess Rapunzel and restore the kingdom – with the help of a slightly neurotic Gypsy Woman – isn’t there one in every fairy tale? and a tired, yet witty, old dragon named Socrates – who has lost his poof!
