Home is the bastion of where every family thrives, grows and evolves. It is where stories of hope, passion, and success are made. In Lancaster New City, families have thousands of narratives to share. From fulfilling the dream of acquiring a place they can call home, to witnessing how their families have grown together with the expansion of the city, each home owner’s story is sure inspiring and heartwarming.
It has been 10 years since Lancaster New City broke ground to create a community where people can live, learn, work, play, and pray. To celebrate this momentous chapter of their journey, the community development staged a musical production called “Decade of Dreams,” showcasing the many stories that helped shape what Lancaster New City is today.
To bring these stories to life on stage, acclaimed theater actors like Jojo Riguerra, Mayen Estanero, Rissey Reyes, and Vic Robinson gathered together for the spectacular musical show on September 28, Thursday at the CP Romulo Theater, RCBC Plaza. PRO-FRIENDS’ talented employees also took part in the show, showcasing their love for performing.
“I feel proud to be part of Lancaster New City since we are celebrating our 10th year. It has come a long way and it has a long way to go din. Marami pang mangyayari in the future and this is just one event na we celebrate 'yung 10 years namin. I feel very happy and proud to be part of this family,” Lancaster New City employee Kenneth Nicholson remarked.
“Decade of Dreams” tackled the various stories of families living within the community through the years - how they evolved and how Lancaster New City became their home. The musical production, which was directed by RJ Samson, was divided into eight musical segments that enthralled and entertained hundreds of live audience. Two original compositions titled “Brand New Day” and “Home is Where My Heart Is” were performed during the show which depicted the daily lives of Lancaster New City residents and how they have grown since investing in the community development.
"I'm so happy and excited at the same time. Parang very positive ng vibe. I'm very thankful kasi first time kong makasali sa ‘Decade of Dreams’ and na-show-showcase 'yung mga hidden talent na meron pala," Lancaster New City employee Nancy Montilliano said.
