Monday, December 22, 2014

     To all the theater performance seekers out there, hear ye, hear ye! A promising stage play is set to take the you in the woods! For its fifth anniversary celebration, Upstart Productions Inc. presents a nature-inspired version of a well-loved modern classic: Into The Woods.

Into The Woods... In the Woods

     A fairy tale musical by Stephen Sondheim and James Lapine, Into The Woods will be presented in Manila in the garden amphitheater known as Kasalikasan, a tree-lined “living art piece” in the heart of BGC. It is one of the few instances of a venue providing the main inspiration for a show. “When we did Forbidden Broadway in Kasalikasan in May 2014, it was a huge success,” explains Joel Trinidad, Upstart founder and director of the piece. “So we started thinking about what other shows we could do here to really take advantage of this beautiful space.” The idea for Into The Woods came almost immediately. “We’ve always loved the musical,” shares Upstart Managing Director Onyl Torres, who does double duty as Vocal Coach for the present production. “So why not do it in the actual woods?”

     One other way that this particular production will be unique is in its use of celebrity guests. “We’ll have a different one for each of the eight performances,” shares Torres. “But we won’t tell audiences who is performing when—it’ll be a surprise.” It is a strategy that Upstart has used before and is happy to use again. “When we did it for Forbidden Broadway, no one had ever done it before,” explains Trinidad. “Now, other theatre companies are doing the same thing!” 

     But after countless actors, countless directors, and countless productions all over the world—including an upcoming Disney movie—does the musical have any surprises left for Manila audiences? Trinidad believes so. “There’s always something new to discover, something new to share,” explains Trinidad. “The material is just that good.” 

     Upstart Productions Inc. and AVIVA present Into The Woods. 6:00 pm on Saturdays and Sundays from February 21 to March 15, 2015, at Kasalikasan Garden, Crescent Park West, Bonifacio Global City. Also brought to you by Picasso Boutique Services Residences and Plana FORMA. Tickets available from Ticketworld. Call 8919999 for details.

Into The Woods is presented through special arrangement with Music Theatre International (MTI). 
All authorized performance materials are also supplied by MTI.

Press Release: DIAL, the soap for all seasons trusted by generations

Saturday, October 11, 2014

     Soap products come and go, each brand claiming a uniqueness that sets it apart from its competitors, be it an extra ingredient for cleansing or a supposed cutting-edge solution for certain benefits. However, in the end, perhaps the true test of a winner is time, a brand that has lasted for a long time, been relished by many generations, and yet keeps reinventing itself in the process.

     Dial is one such brand. The very name itself brings up powerful and poignant images of a soap that has been used consistently by one family member after another, and has come with the best recommendations of parent, sibling, and friend alike. Besides excellence and quality, it is strongly associated with high-grade cleansing that only Dial can deliver, speaking of results that have satisfied - and continue to satisfy – consumers.

Press Release: Your baby’s precious CORD blood can save his precious life

Thursday, September 18, 2014

     As mothers, you will do anything for your child. Even way before they are brought into this world, your instincts kick in and you tirelessly worry about your baby. You want to learn everything there is to learn and more importantly, you want to protect them from anything and everything that can harm them be it the common cold or a fever; and if you had your way, you would gladly get sick for your child. And your anxiety is not without reason, since there are many childhood diseases that can be harmful or even fatal to children. 

    Leukemia is perhaps the most common type of cancer compromising 47.8% of all childhood cancers1. Hodgkin’s Disease1 or non-Hodgkin Lymphoma is the third childhood cancer comprising 9% of childhood cancer. Aside from these types of cancers, certain brain disorders are also common in children. These include cerebral palsy and neuroblastoma. Cerebral palsy severely impairs the development of the motor functions and afflicts 1-2 percent of the Philippine population2. Neuroblastoma, on the other hand, causes the sufferer to lose the ability to empty the bladder, experience paralysis of the hips, feet, legs and uncontrolled movement.

     Research into the use of cord blood and cord lining stem cells have been ongoing since the 1980s and has shown promise of saving lives and treating life-threatening diseases. More than 30,000 cord blood stem cell transplants3 have already been performed since 1988. To know more about Cordlife, click CONTINUE READING please.

Everybody Can Be A Hero, Ayos 'di ba?

Sunday, August 24, 2014

     There's a hero in each and everyone of us. Being a hero can be seen even in the simplest form of act like helping an elder woman cross the street, helping a lost child inside the mall to look for his/her parents or saving your allowance to help in monthly expenses of the family. For me simple things means a lot, no need to televise a good act just to be called a hero. No need to sacrifice your own life just to prove your countrymen that you're a hero. We can all be heroes in our own little ways.

     What does it mean to be a hero for you? For each person, the idea of being a hero can change. But heroism doesn’t always involve having to risk your life for your country. Sometimes, it springs from the simplest forms of kindness and ingenuity! Buti na lang, marami niyan ang mga Pinoy! (Good thing, Filipinos have heaps of that).
