West End Theater Artists to Perform in Cebu; Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure

West End Theater Artists to Perform in Cebu; Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure Yes, you’ve heard it right! Cebuanos will soon witness a stageplay performed by international artists from the widely-known mainstream theaters of West End, London. This seems too good to be true but this is really it! The performers will set foot in Cebu this June 11 and 12, 2016 at SM Seaside-Centerstage, for a musical portrayal of the story of Peter Pan, entitled “PETER PAN: A MUSICAL ADVENTURE”, directed by the highly-experienced, executive producer-director, writer, marketer with wide exposure to performance events staged in theme-parks, formal theatres, open-air and street– Mr. Paul Hammond. This will be its first Philippine staging. Exciting! This event is headed by Events International, a production company that has brought international concerts and stageplays across the stages in India, Thailand, Vietnam and some parts of Europe. They have promoted musicals from the US and UK such as “Barefoot in the Park”, “Cats”, “Ain’t Misbehavin”, “Evita” and “Mousetrap”. As the company is still on its ongoing journey in providing entertainment, they decided to mount “Peter Pan” in the Philippines and luckily, Cebu, in particular. Events International is currently in collaboration with Event Aspects, a local production company that coordinates and manages corporate and artistic events. This event has long been planned and with careful and thorough processing, the collaboration finally laid all the cards on the table. So for all theater enthusiasts, children of all ages and for everyone else who once met Peter, Wendy or Tinkerbell in their dreams, please keep posted for further details. Well, this might have been such a surprising announcement for many but this is  definitely something to be thrilled about....

CHRISTMAS Message of Bishop Leonardo MEDROSO

CHRISTMAS greetings to the People of God of the Diocese of Tagbilaran and the province of Bohol. “The humanity of Christ is our happiness.” These are the very words uttered by St. Thomas Aquinas in which he speaks about Jesus. He said precisely, “Ad huno finem beatitudinis, hominess reducuntur per humanitatem Christi.” Through the humanity of Christ, men and women are brought back towards the mystery of God, our Creator who constantly desires peace among His creatures. The fundamental significance of Christmas is peace and goodwill. “Glory to God in the highest and peace to His people on earth.” This peace is anchored on harmonious relationship with others because when the Child eventually grew up, He was willing to stand up for the well-being of others; He always bestowed blessings to others; and ultimately, He was ready to die for the salvation of the world. In a world where we are constantly threatened by disorder, strife and confusion, we are called to be always thoughtful and sincere with our relationships. Peace will only happen and is unfolded when we are true to ourselves and upright with our relationship with others by embodying in us the Gospel message. Merry Christmas to all of you! In Christ Jesus, Bishop Leonardo...
