The Kundiman Party comes into a new home this weekend

Floy Quintos' play The Kundiman Party will be performing for a limited run at the PETA Theater Center starting May 24 to June 2 2019. This acclaimed Filipino play also brings back majority of the stellar cast to give a relevant and crucial performance on national issues seaming modern topics that can bind old schoolers and millennials alike.
CB Garrucho has opened the doors of PETA Theater Center to UP Playwright's play in continuing the advocacy in providing audiences narratives to keep the nationalism alive and to cement what the Philippine Educational Theater Association stands for. Just in time after the mid-term elections, they believe that it will be another chapter of struggle in fighting national dignity.
The cast of The Kundiman Party still includes most of the ensemble led by Shamaine Centenera-Buencamino as Maestra Adela, a reclusive voice teacher whose latent nationalism is awakened. Together with Frances Makil-Ignacio, Stella CaƱete-Mendoza, Jenny Jamora and Missy Maramara as Adela's close circle of Titas, the cast painted a portrait of contemporary Pinoy society that was both poignant as well as wildly entertaining.

Dexter Santos still directs The Kundiman Party in PETA and joined by talented artists who reprise their roles: Miah Canton as Antoinette, Rica Nepomuceno as Melissa. Watch their videos below as they sing kundiman songs in the play. Some songs are arranged by National Artist for Music, Mr. Ryan Cayabyab.

Newcomers such as Gabriel Paguirigan makes his acting debut as Ludwig, who has a lot of achievements on his plate -- including bagging the first prize in the NAMCYA 2011 competition and winning again in 2015 in the Senior division. Boo Gabunada (Cyrano, Mula sa Buwan and Emman, Ang Huling El Bimbo) plays the young activist Bobby Valderama. Nonie Buencamino is also in the play as Sen. Juancho Valderama who will confront in a scene with his wife, Ms. Shamaine.
