The musical phenomenon, “Rak of Aegis” is back on its seventh season and will run from July 5 to September 29, 2019, at the PETA Theater in Quezon City. The story follows the life of Aileen—a simple girl living in a flood-prone area called Barangay Venizia—who dreams of fame and fortune.
The success of the hit musical is supported and co-presented by the Organisasyon ng mga Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM), the PhilPop MusicFest Foundation (PhilPop), and the Philippine Educational Theatre Association. Bringing in a timely story about Filipino spirit and resilience, the Pinoy musical also introduces its new cast members along with OPM artists.
Aside from being a multi-awarded singer-songwriter and an active member and artist-teacher of PETA, Noel Cabangon is also known for his best-selling albums such as “Byahe”, “Panaginip”, “Tuloy Ang Byahe”, “Acoustic Noel”, and “Throwback: Songbuk ng Apo,” to name a few. Cabangon plays the role of Aileen’s father named “Kiel”, who works as a shoemaker. He believes that the cause of flooding comes from their neighboring subdivision, Villa Arkadia.
Known for his classic hits, “Babaero”, “Paikot-ikot”, and “Damdaming Para Sa’yo,” Randy Santiago takes the role of Fernan. Santiago was a musical talent, member of the La Salle Greenhills (LSGH) Glee Club and DLSU Chorale, and even became the male lead singer of Manila’s Top 80s Band.
