‘Bona’ run extended until Sept 30

07:01 PM September 25, 2012

MANILA, Philippines—After 25 successful shows, the Philippine Educational Theater Association is extending its run of “Bona” until September 30 at The PETA Theater Center.

From the 1980’s Lino Brocka film starring Nora Aunor as the naïve, schoolgirl Bona and Philip Salvador as Gardo, the movie extra whom Bona worshipped out of fan obsession, PETA’s production presents a similar story with characters in the modern setting.

Portraying the title role, Eugene Domingo plays a spinster call center agent who becomes obsessed with a star-search wannabe actor essayed by Edgar Allan Guzman.

“Lahat kami nag-share ng experiences namin and we gave our input on how we think the story of Bona should be during this time. Dapat reflection ito ng panahon natin but we retained the vision of Direk Lino Brocka. Pero in the same manner, dapat maka-identify din ang audience sa kuwento kasi contemporary na ang setting,” shares lead actress Domingo.

“By bridging film, theater and television, Bona aims to gather more supporters for the theater industry,” says Domingo, as she urges movie and TV audiences to also patronize the theater, “I encourage them to please experience theater.”

Extended shows will be on Friday 8 p.m., Saturday-Sunday 3 p.m. and 8 p.m. at The PETA Theater Center in Quezon City. For tickets, 725-6244, 0917-5765400; www.petatheater.com or www.ticketworld.com.ph.
