All Out Of Love The Musical

The world premiere of the highly anticipated new musical! 

All Out Of Love the Musical features the classic songs of Air Supply, one of the world’s most successful and enduring bands, with over 100 million album sales worldwide, and an original script skilfully woven into a new love story by award winning Canadian playwright Jim Millan, All Out Of Love the Musical is poised to be one of musical theatres next hit shows.

Jamie is struggling having left behind his song writing partner and love of his life Rayne while Tommy is dealing with his own loss, that of his wife and his distant relationship with his daughter.

Ang Pag-uusig (Re-run)
October 5 to 28 (CCP Little Theater)

Ang Pag-uusig is a play that dramatizes how “the establishment” is used as a tool of the powerful few in exerting its force to condemn the innocent. It is a metaphor for the “witch hunt” and stands as an allegory of our country’s current political and social state.

Tickets are price from P824 to P1030. 




October 26 and 27 (PETA Theater Center)

An original satirical live show guaranteed to be brave, explosive, and delightfully entertaining! As the meme-able title implies, Trumperte is the ultimate political spoof mash-up. Here, Jon inaugurates his hilarious impressions of Donald Trump and Digong Duterte, both in one night!

Jon Santos as Trumperte goes to PETA Theater Center this October 2018!

Trumperte is an extra special project for Jon Santos because the comedy act caps his 30 years in show business. This gem of a performance demonstrates why no one can replace Jon as the country's top political impersonator, and the sharpest comic barometer of society. Trumperte is written by Jon Santos, Enrico Santos, and Joel Mercado, with stage direction by Michael Williams.

Dia de Muertos: Forgotten Souls
October 26 (Ayala Museum)

Now on its fifth year, Ayala Museum’s MIDNIGHT MUSEUM is back to give you a night at the museum with a twist (and a scare). Happening on October 26, this year’s theme is Dia del Muertos: Forgotten Souls, an ode to the Mexican celebration and in partnership with the Mexican Embassy.

Dia de Muertos: Forgotten Souls gives tribute to the souls that have been outcast and forgotten by society; souls that have been roaming restlessly, unable to find peace and unable to crossover to the land of the dead.

Participants will bear witness to these souls and their deaths, helping guide these souls to peace through rituals, superstitions, and ceremonial challenges.

MIDNIGHT MUSEUM | Dia de Muertos: Forgotten Souls is happening on 26 October 2018 from 7PM-12MN.

Slots are limited so register now and choose your time slot. To get full details and how-to’s, visit ayalamuseum.org/forgotten-souls.
