‘Sa Wakas,’ a new Pinoy rock musical featuring the music of Sugarfree, opens April 13



“SA WAKAS” stars some of the brightest young stars of local theater: Fred Lo, Caissa Borromeo, Vic Robinson, Kyla Rivera, Laura Cabochan and Justine Peña.

Culture Shock Productions, in cooperation with Fringe MNL, presents “Sa Wakas”, a new Pinoy rock musical.

The show weaves together the songs of one of the country’s most beloved rock bands, Sugarfree, into a bittersweet love story that chronicles the end of one relationship and the beginning of another. Co-written by Andrei Nikolai Pamintuan and Mariane Abuan with music arranged by Ejay Yatco, “Sa Wakas” promises to bring together the world of pop rock and musical theater in one groundbreaking show.

“Sa Wakas” will have a limited run of 14 shows at the Peta-Phinma Theater in Quezon City, with matinee and evening performances on April 13, 14, 19, 20, 21, 26, 27, 28.

Sugarfree was an alternative rock group led by Ebe Dancel that spawned beloved hits such as “Mariposa,” “Burnout,” “‘Wag Ka Nang Umiyak,” “Hari ng Sablay” and “Makita Kang Muli.” Though the group disbanded in 2011, its music still resonates today. “Sa Wakas,” also the title of the band’s first album, aims to reintroduce these songs to a new generation and present them with a fresh and distinct sound.

The company is proud to have in its roster the best and most talented young stars of Philippine theater.

The title character of Topper will be alternately played by TV5’s Fred Lo (9 Works Theatrical’s “Rent”) and Gawad Buhay Award nominee Vic Robinson (Peta’s “Si Juan Tamad, Ang Dyablo at Ang Limang Milyong Boto”).

Female leads include Gawad Buhay Award winner Caisa Borromeo (Repertory Philippines’ “Little Women”) and nominee Kyla Rivera (Repertory Philippines’ “I Love You Because”). Completing the cast are Laura Cabochan and Justine Peña.
