Ang Paglaya: The Musical onstage at Rodelsa Hall

Oro Teatro Bulawanon has partnered with 7HS Media Productions in bringing to life a musical play that was originally created and staged at Tanghalan sa Kampo Juan last May 2019 in Manolo Fortich, Bukidnon. It was a 45-minute play focused about the father and daughter relationship of Manuel Martin his daughter, Annika.

On August 5 & 6, our theater group will be staging the musical version of Ang Paglaya. Aside from the main casts, there are a lot of new and interesting characters and stories. Also, it has original songs that are written specifically for the play itself. It is a simple story that explores on relationships. Here’s a brief backgrounder about it:

Ang Paglaya is a simple story that explores relationships: the father-daughter relationship of Manuel and Annika, Annika’s longing for her mom Anna (who died when she was 8), and relationships with newfound friends who have secretly known her for years. It is also about a father’s misplaced love for his daughter, which started after the death of his wife.

Ang Paglaya is also about Annika and her quest for freedom from her domineering Dad. Her journey to discovering her true self.

The first part of the story takes place in regular settings: Manuel’s house, the school library, the Diwa’s house. The second part of the story will take you to an entirely new world where you’ll meet diwatas, engkantos, and dwendes.

Ang Paglaya is an original Filipino musical, and all the songs were written specifically for the play by some cast members and production staff.

Overall, Ang Paglaya is a story of love: love for self, love for family, love for your passion and dreams, and love for everyone around you.

Ang Paglaya: The Musical will be staged at Rodelsa Hall of Liceo de Cagayan University. It is a fundraising event for the LDCU High School Alumni’s special projects. There will be four shows:
