DUE TO POPULAR demand, Scharon Mani comes back on stage this Nov. 18 to 20 at the Claire Isabel McGill Luce Auditorium.
The play was very well accepted by Sillimanians and Dumagueteños that those who were not able to see it, asked for more. Dessa Quesada-Palm, director of Scharon Mani said, “We (the cast and crew) felt staging it right at the start of Dumaguete City fiesta activities is also a fitting way to feature Dumaguete stories and talents.”
To those who aren’t familiar of the play, Palm said, “Scharon Mani carries the feel, the look, the rhythm and pulse of Dumaguete. It is about a spritely girl who sells Chicharon Mani, and how her infectious love for singing and life affects other young people in the story who are struggling in their respective lives.”
Palm shared that although this is a restage, the audience should expect a few additions such as a flip top rendition of the discourse between the pedicab drivers and students, and the improvement in production. The music is still shared by local songwriters in the BellTower project that adds the right movement of the play.
She also added that the main cast is still intact but they have been mixed with a few additions because other cast members couldn’t join.
Palm invites everyone she says, “There is a take-home value for each one who will watch because It will make you hopeful about the way we can build a community.”
This restage is part of the offerings of the Silliman University Culture and Arts Council for this semester. It will run from Nov. 18 to 20 with gala shows at 8 p.m. and matinee shows at 10 a.m. and 3 p.m.
