Eto na! Musikal nAPO! a Theatrical Play featuring APO Hiking Society Classics

It’s always been a dream of mine to take an original and look at what we can do to help support Filipino theatre. With the success of Newsies, I think we’ve accomplished our first mission: establishing that the Globe LIVE 9Works combination can do Broadway. We want to bring that same, creative thought-process, that same production partnership to a local production, to Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!” ~Joe Caliro, Senior Advisor for Creative Marketing & Multimedia Businesses and Executive Producer of Globe Live

Songs such as “Batang Bata Ka Pa”“Awit ng Barkada”, “Mahirap Magmahal Ng Syota Ng lba”, “Bawat Bata”“When I Met You”“Doo Bidoo Bidoo”, band more are just a few of the many APO Hiking Society’s hits during the 80's and 90's wherein I was a high school student back then.

Globe LIVE together with 9Works Theatrical present Eto na! Musikal nAPO! is back with another musical that will keep the audience entertained and glued to their seats. Continuing its exceptional streak in the performing arts after successful productions such as Disney’s Newsies, A Christmas Carol, and Green Day’s American Idiot.

Featuring the music of one of the country’s legendary singing groups and influential OPM artists, APO Hiking Society, and top-billed by singer-actor the production’s lead actor Mark Bautista, is known for his stellar performances on television, film, and plays. He got his big break when he joined and ended up second in a reality TV talent search. He started in other ways, most notable of Here Lies Love by David Byrne and Fatboy Slim performed at Royal National Theatre in London.

This Musical is sure to inspire the youth and fill the theater with laughter and nostalgia. This local, original musical follows the success of Disney’s Newsies, another Globe LIVE & 9Works Theatrical collaboration, which received major awards in the recent Gawad Buhay.

Add to that their individual problems with their girlfriends, love interests, parents and studies, and the current political turmoil of Martial Law, they have a full plate on their hands. The group has to find a way to overcome the challenges.
