CCP Tanghalang Pilipino Musical Play



Through a grant from the National Commission for Culture and the Arts
(NCCA), Tanghalang Pilipino (TP) presents Dugtong-Dugtong na Sumbong
(Ang Hukuman ni Sinukuan), the third production in its 24th Theater
Season (2010-2011) that celebrates the National Artist as a modern
Filipino IDOL. Adapted for the stage by Liza Magtoto, Dugtong-Dugtong na
Sumbong (Ang Hukuman ni Sinukuan) is based on National Artist for
Literature Virgilio Almario's re-telling of the popular tale. It
combines a folktale about the mosquito that is common to a lot of Asian
countries with one that is uniquely Filipino about the kingdom of
Mariang Sinukuan in Pampanga.

With music by Jed Balsamo and production design by Patty
Eustaquio, the play promises to be a fun and exciting feast for all the
senses where set pieces ingeniously transform into costumes that turn
actors into different characters right before the audience's eyes. The
production will be staged under the artistic vision of Tess Jamias, an
alumna of the TP Actors Company whose directorial work for TP includes
R.A.W., The Lover, Pamaypay, Kutsilyo, Yantok, and most recently, Apples
from the Desert.

This musical play for children of all ages features spectacular
performances from actors who sing, move, and play musical instruments
while giving life to a variety of animal characters. The cast of
multi-talented performers include Nina Angela Rumbines (as Mariang
Sinukuan), Abner Delina, Marc Anthony Falcon and Michael Ian Lomongo.

The world premier of Dugtong-Dugtong na Sumbong (Ang Hukuman
ni Sinukuan) is on November 12, 2010, at 3:00 in the afternoon. It will
run for two weeks at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (Little
Theater) until November 21; with morning shows (10:00 AM) on November
13, 14, 17, 18, 18, 20 and 21, and afternoon shows (3:00 PM) November
