The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) is set to open 2014 with its 46th theater season closer "Rak of Aegis," a musical that features the chart-topping songs of the iconic rock band that popularized such hits as "Luha," "Halik," and "Basang-basa sa Ulan."
A story of love, fame and resilience, the narrative revolves around the residents of the flooded village of Villa Venizia. At the center of the story is Aileen (Aicelle Santos alternating with Joan Bugcat) a young mall promodizer caught in the web of finding love and seeking fame to support her family.
Aileen's family like the other residents are greatly affected by the flood. Her father Kiel is in the brink of losing his job as baranggay captain Mary Jane (Isay Alvarez-Seña) plans to close her failing shoe factory. Knowing that her income will never be enough to make ends meet, Aileen decides to make a video of herself in the hopes of becoming the next YouTube sensation. Aileen's suitor Tolits (Jerald Napoles alternating with Pepe Herrera) posts the video online, unaware that it will put Villa Venizia under the spotlight and change their lives forever.
Rak of Aegis will open on January 31 and will run Fridays to Sundays until March 9, 2014 at The PETA Theater Center located at No.5 Eymard Drive, New Manila, Quezon City. Shows are Fridays-Sundays, Friday and Saturday shows at 3:00 P.M. and 8:00 P.M. and Sundays at 10:00 A.M and 3:00 P.M, except Feb 23 with shows at 10:00A.M and 8:00 P.M. and Mar 2 at 3:00 P.M. and 8:00PM.
