Stage Play: Walang Umaga sa Casa Ligaya

When I was still studying, I was into stage plays and school presentations. I so missed moments like rehearsal, bonding with friends and celebration after a successful run. How I wish my child will be interested in theater arts as well.

I saw an announcement about a stage play being presented by college students and some of you dear readers might want to catch it as well.

The Magwayen Creative Scholars’ Guild (MCSG) will present its 15th Anniversary production, the restaging of “Walang Umaga sa Casa Ligaya," on March 26, 27 and 28 at the PLM Justo Albert Auditorium. 

MCSG is the premiere theater and performing arts group of Pamantasan ng Lungsod ng Maynila (PLM). They’ve been honing talented students in singing, dancing, acting, writing, production and stage management for the past 15 years. 

Walang Umaga sa Casa Ligaya tells the story of the people working in a gay bar, and how they deal with the sudden news of its shutdown. It's a poignant drama about love, hope, acceptance and forgiveness. 

The play was written by the guild's Founder, Marlon G. Miguel, and directed by John Borgy Danao. The ticket price of Walang Ligaya sa Casa Ligaya is Php 70.00 for PLMayers and Php100.00 for outsiders.
