Pinoy Musical Caredivas Launches Photo Contest to Our OFW Heroes

Wazzup Pilipinas!

Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) in partnership with Overseas Workers Welfare Administration (OWWA) shall present the special run of CAREDIVAS – AN ORIGINAL PINOY MUSICAL to pay tribute to all overseas Filipino workers as the present-day heroes of our country with performances beginning June 24 until July 30, 2017 at The PETA Theater Center.

CAREDIVAS is a disarmingly funny and candid musical drama about five transgender Overseas Filipino Workers in Israel who work as care givers in the morning and transform into glamorous drag queen performers at night. While desperate to make ends meet, they also struggle to search for acceptance in a foreign land.

CAREDIVAS was produced and premiered in 2011. The musical dominated the 2011 Philstage Gawad Buhay! Awards, bagging seven trophies including Outstanding Musical Direction, Outstanding Musical Production and Outstanding Ensemble Performance for a Musical.

To encourage our OFW heroes to get the chance to watch CAREDIVAS, PETA has launched “ANONG KWENTONG OFW MO? PHOTO CONTEST.” Open to all OFWs and their families and friends, the mechanics are as follows:

1. Go to PETA Facebook page and ‘Like’

2. Post your personal OFW photo and story. Tag the PETA page by using the hashtags: #KwentongOFW #CareDivas

3. Make sure that the post is made ‘PUBLIC’.

4. The top five (5) entries with the most number of likes will win five (5) complimentary tickets to watch CAREDIVAS Pinoy musical plus special gift packs!

5. Winners will be announced on PETA’s Facebook page on June 24.

For this special run of CAREDIVAS, audiences will meet our caregivers as characterized by the kind and loving Chelsea, the often-sarcastic group leader Shai, the ditzy Thalia, the bubbly Kayla, and the ill-tempered Jonee.

Giving life to the major roles are well-respected theater actors Melvin Lee (Chelsea), Vincent de Jesus and Ron Alfonso (Shai), Dudz Teraña and Jason Barcial (Thalia), Gio Gahol, Ricci Chan and Jerald Napoles (Kayla), Thou Reyes and Phil Noble (Jonee).

The actors in their supporting roles are Myke Salomon (Faraj, David, Daniel), Paul Holme and Leo Rialp (Isaac, Moshe, Yaakov, Club owner), Joan Bugcat and Gold Villar (Nonah), Eric Dela Cruz and Dom Miclat-Janssen (Avi, Aryeh, Pulis), Sherry Lara (Sarah, Adara), Eko Baquial and Joseph Madriaga (ensemble).

The artistic team of CAREDIVAS are as follows: Maribel Legarda (Director), Liza Magtoto (Playwright), Vincent de Jesus (Music Composer / Musical Director), costume designer John Abul, lighting designer Jonjon Villareal, visual artist and set designer Leo Abaya, and contemporary dancer and choreographer Carlon Matobato.

Are you an OFW? Here’s a not-to-be-missed musical that is dedicated to all of you and your families.

Join us for an unforgettable evening of bittersweet laughter, high energy songs and the bright colors of CAREDIVAS.
