Manila, Philippines, March 10, 2013 -- We are glad that BroadwayWorld (BWW) got a rehearsal sneak peek with the cast of Harlequin Theatre Guild's book-to-stage adaptation of Palanca winner Vicente Garcia Groyon's "The Sky Over Dimas," written by Tim Dacanay and directed by Romualdo Tejada, at De La Salle University (DLSU) yesterday.
BWW PH videographer Jeffrey Aguiman releases his video footage below!
In "The Sky Over Dimas," Groyon brings his readers (audiences) to his real-life hometown, Bacolod, the capital of the province of Negros Occidental, where the Torrecarions, members of the upper-middle class, dwell in dark secrets filled with greed, deceit, and betrayal that their kin members cannot escape on their own.
Amidst all the secrets, there is but one person who will do anything and everything to end the cycle that continuously haunts his clan: George (Redjie Jimenez, Toby Alejar) who is fed up with all the lies.
George exiles himself to Hacienda Dimas in Bacolod where it all began, and exposes the skeletons in the closet that delve into his family's past.
This stage adaptation of "The Sky Over Dimas" features musical score by Dodgie Fernandez, set design by Joseph Duran, and lighting design by Katsch SJ Catoy.
"The Sky Over Dimas" plays Teresa Yuchengco Auditorium, DLSU from Thursday, March 21 to Saturday, March 23. For tickets (PhP 200), contact Kyle Bulut at (63) 917 896 2239 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
