Ang Huling El Bimbo, the hit musical revolving around the music of legendary OPM band Eraserheads, is looking for a child actress to play the role of Ligaya.

Ligaya, named after one of the band's hits, is the daughter of the musical's lead character Joy.

Organizers said the role is open to 8- to 12-year-olds who are fluent in Tagalog.

Applicants must send a three-minute audition video singing a Tagalog song, together with their CV, and half-body photo to [email protected] and indicate “Ligaya Audition” in the subject.

Applications are open until Jan. 31, at 5:00 p.m.

"Those who will qualify will be contacted for an in-person audition at a later date," organizers added.

Original cast members Gian Magdangal, Gab Pangilinan, and Topper Fabregas will reprise their respective roles as Hector, young Joy, and young Anthony.

Also reprising their roles are Jamie Wilson as Sergeant Banlaoi and Sheila Francisco as Tiya Dely.

Joining the team is veteran recording artist and music producer Nino Alejandro, who will play the role of Anthony.

The role of Emman will be played by indie folk artist Bullet Dumas, who recently made his theater debut earlier this year. He played Andres Bonifacio in the musical play 2Bayani: Isang Rock Opera Alay Kay Andres Bonifacio. Gawad Buhay award-winning theater actor Paw Castillo, meanwhile, will portray young Emman. 

GMA-7’s The Clash grand finalist Anthony Rosaldo will play young Hector and voice teacher Katrine Sunga as Joy. 

Ang Huling El Bimbo The Musical is directed by Dexter Santos and written by Dingdong Novenario.

The official show dates and ticket details have yet to be announced.
