The NINOY & CORY AQUINO FOUNDATION, INC. (NCAF), in partnership with INDIE.GO MEDIA and the PHILIPPINE EDUCATIONAL THEATER ASSOCIATION proudly present the gala premiere of  ” PAMANA ” — an original docu-musical written by noted playwright RODY VERA and music by Manoling V. Francisco, S.J.  and Ryan Cayabyab.

The cast is top billed by noted stage and film actress Malou de Guzman.

Malou plays the role of Lola Azon, a street sweeper, witnesses the hordes of people who marched through the funeral of a man she hardly knew. And through the years of protest rallies and struggle to end a dictatorship, she found hope and strength in the power of the people.

Jett Pangan shall tackle the role of Edgar, Azon’s son who witnesses the fading and the corruption of that pure hope as the years of “democracy” went by.

Kakki Teodoro will take the pivotal role of Trina, Edgar’s daughter who was only 13 years old when Pres. Corazon Aquino died. She relates how her father’s cynicism rubbed off on her at first.

TV and film actor  Bodjie Pascua also joins Pamana, who shall essay the role of Turo, Azon’s husband.

The ensemble is composed of Raul Alfonso, Kiki Baento, Raflesia Bravo, Roi Calilong, Buddy Caramat, Joan Co, Karen Gaerlan, Gio Gahol, She Maala, Benedict Manaois, Gie Onida, Norbs Portales, Gino Ramirez, Victor Robinson, Angela Samson, Nica Santiago, Miela Sayo, Ian Segarra, Gold Villar and Yeyin Dela Cruz.

Lending support as chorus is Viva Voce under artistic director Camille Lopez-Molina.

The artistic and creative team of PAMANA is led by Rody Vera (Playwright), Maribel Legarda (Stage Director), Melvin Lee (Associate Stage Director), Jun Reyes (Video Director and Executive Producer), Manoling V. Francisco, S.J. and Ryan Cayabyab (Composers), Vince de Jesus (Musical Director), Batche Tan (Choreograper), Boni Juan (Set Designer), Carlo Pagunaling (Costume Designer), Jonjon Villareal (Lighting Designer and Technical Designer).
