Dulaang UP is all prepped for its return to the stage.
Starting strong from its successful run of Floy Quintos’ The Reconciliation Dinner in November 2022, two years after its hiatus due to the pandemic, Dulaang UP is set to make its big comeback with Kung Paano Nanalo sa Karera si Rosang Taba, which runs from March 23 until April 2 at the University Theater Main Stage, University of the Philippines – Diliman.
Written by award-winning playwrights Maynard Manansala and Rody Vera and directed by José Estrella with her mentees Issa Manalo Lopez and Mark Dalacat, Kung Paano Nanalo sa Karera si Rosang Taba tells the story of how a woman was able to change history with her courage, wit, and determination
The play is adapted from Dean Francis Alfar’s How Rosang Taba Won a Race, and will navigate how Rosa’s feat was recounted by her great-grandchildren in hopes to make her legacy alive in modern times.
The theatrical play will be star Kiki Baento as Rosang Taba and Jojo Cayabyab as Gobernador Heneral. Joining the cast are Skyzx Labastilla, Peewee O' Hara, Victor Sy, Aldo Vencilao, Quinea Babas, Ynna Rafa, Dyas Adarlo, Mari Palaganas, Owel Pepito, and Pau Vengano.
The tickets are priced at P1,000 for regular admissions and P800 for students, persons with disability, senior citizens, and those who will avail of bulk purchases.
The proceeds from the play will be used for the rehabilitation and renovation of the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater, the home of over 150 Dulaang UP plays for four decades, honoring their homegrown artists and scholars including two National Artists for Theatre, Amelia Lapeña-Bonifacio and Dulaang UP’s founding Artistic Director Antonio “Tony” Mabesa.
