‘Katy The Musical’ To Return

Spotlight Artists Centre proudly announces that ''Katy The Musical'' will be restaged at the Meralco Theater from July 25 to Aug. 4, 2013.

Based on the inspiring story of legendary jazz chanteuse Katy dela Cruz, the critically-acclaimed revival production of Ryan Cayabyab and Jose Javier Reyes' landmark musical had its limited run at the CCP Little Theater last Jan. 17 to 27.

Directed by Nestor Torre, ''Katy'' featured a powerhouse cast that included Tirso Cruz III, Dulce, Epy Quizon, Tricia Amper-Jimenez, Lou Veloso, Gian Magdangal, and promising triple threat upstart Aicelle Santos.

''It has been barely two weeks since that last curtain call for 'Katy The Musical,' and yet the deafening applause still keeps ringing in my ears,'' reminisces lead star Isay Alvarez-Seña.

Judging from the fully-packed performances, enthusiastic audience response, and the very generous reviews they've garnered during the limited run, Isay and the entire production team feels vindicated knowing that they've built a beacon of hope and inspiration for the local theater industry and OPM music as well. What's even more heartening is seeing people from different generations and different persuasions, bound by their shared passion for the stage.

In line with its thrust of promoting the theater arts, Spotlight Artists Centre, headed by Robert Seña and Isay Alvarez-Seña, announced that they will soon be holding summer workshops for musical theater and tap dance. For more details, log on to www.spotlightartistscentre.com
