As young ballet dancer Christine Daae becomes the object of The Phantom's secret affections, he manipulates her career at the expense and horror of the Opera House staff and stars.

Charot!
March 15, and 17 (PETA Theater Center)

A colloquial term meaning, "just kidding." It underlines a pun. It downplays a scathing statement to jest.

PETA's "CHAROT!" presents Philippine current events for the freak show that it is, imagining the future and consequences of a new charter. This is our rehearsal for democracy, or the lack thereof… Charot!

Directed by Rak of Aegis director, Maribel Legarda, Charot! is an interactive comedy musical that revolves around the concept of "voting" and democracy, and will present the realities of the Philippine society in a strangely familiar satire that is both hilarious and ridiculous. 

Tickets are priced from P600 to P1500, and can be purchased by calling PETA at +632-725-6244. 

DOM: Dirty Old Musical
March 16, and 23 (Music Museum)

Dirty Old Musical is about “The Bench Boys”, a male group band in the 80s who had a one-time big time hit and disbanded after sometime due to personality differences among other reasons.

Reality check…they are now in their 50’s and already showing the signs of a DOM - andropause, diminishing sex life, erectile dysfunction and different medical conditions that face men their age.

Can they still do this concert? Thus,the riot and other complicating subplots, from the other supporting characters like the son, mother and the girlfriend.
