From a star-studded cast to a relatable plot, PETA's longest-running hit Pinoy musical entitled Rak of Aegis returns from July 5 to September 29, 2019 to give us another round of rocking tunes and superb performances!
Written by Liza Magtoto and directed by Maribel Legard, this musical tells the story of Aileen, a young girl with a big voice who dreams of viral fame on YouTube and a guesting on the Ellen Degeneres Show. While Aileen’s motives at first seem shallow, she later reveals that her ambition is fueled by her desire to make a difference and save her hometown.
This 2019, due to insistent public demand, Rak of Aegis will run for its seventh season, which will be co-presented by the Organisasyon ng mga Pilipinong Mang-aawit (OPM,) The PhilPop MusicFest Foundation (PhilPop,) and PLDT Home Fibr, as “a tribute to and celebration of original Pinoy music and artists.”
Aside from Aicelle Santos' comeback as Aileen after touring with Miss Saigon, this season also welcomes rising star Kimberly Baluzo for the lead role.
