The two-month preparations involved workshops, background studies, rehearsals as well as getting sponsors and media partners. “More on dance workshops ang na-experience namin since aside from acting, movements ang majority ng play,” TEATRO Lasalliana President Angela Zulueta added. Actors were also ensured to have good grades on academic subjects since they were excused from their classes during the play’s screening.
