Posted by : Pinoy Screen and Stage Sunday, July 31, 2016
“Going deeper into my study of the play, I am starting to realize that it has powerful lessons that a lot of the teens today can learn from specially when it comes to going through important journeys that lead to one’s destiny. I am so proud that I am part of this play that can make a difference,” says seasoned actor Polo Ravales, who will essay the lead role of the Greek hero.
If you think that you already know everything about the legendary man-god, think again. Fullblast Productions, the most exciting entertainment company today founded by the core members of Young Artists Production, is mounting an edgy take on our favorite Greek mythology character with the play Hercules: The Valiant Warrior of Thebes in September featuring the very talented Polo Ravales as lead actor. The cast also includes Natasha Cabrera, Ronah Rostata, CJ Flores Marin, Paw Castillo, Fatima Cadiz, Hutch Perales, Jhay-R Baccol, Francelle Fetalvero, Jovito Bonita, Jasper Jimenez, Jasmin Salvo, Ren Medina, and Tina Dela Cruz.
“My vision for the play is for it to be able to tackle the not so familiar dimensions of Hercules. I wanted to zero in on his quest for his self-actualization by looking closer at the reasons of his actions and also the key players in his life,” says acclaimed actor Riki Benedicto who will take the helm of the direction of this production.
Musical Direction and original music by Erwin Lacsa, one of the members of Ryan Cayabyab Singers.
Eljay Deldoc, who has written so many materials for Virgin Labfest/ Teatro Tomasino, is the playwright of this production. He believes that the people will see a very different story-telling of Hercules because it focuses not just on Hercules alone but puts special attention to the role of the other characters. He is very much excited to showcase these other characters who will provide the right triggers to Hercules’ greatness. More than that, he is also very proud about how relevant the lessons of this play are to the people they want to watch it: college, high school and grade school students. The main actor of the play also shares that view.
