SCHARON MANI: A New Bisaya Musical Coming Your Way This December

This coming Christmas holiday, 2TinCans Philippines presents ‘Scharon Mani’, a Bisaya musical inspired by the stories in and around the vibrant seaside town of Dumaguete City. Written by Junsly Kitay with music from the Belltower Project, the play revolves around Charlene, the daughter of Neneh, a labandera and Nelo, a street vendor. A singing contest is coming to town and Charlene’s dream of becoming a star seems to be within reach until a series of unfortunate events compels the young dreamer to sell chicharon and mani. Her life as a vendor intersects with other children and characters who are struggling to define their life purpose. Young singing sensation, Yessha de la Calzada, plays the role of Charlene, alongside Princess Tessa Bacalla as alternate. Completing the lead cast are Joer Gallur and Dion Cecilio, who alternately play the hopeless romantic call center agent Alnel; Zyradee Ramos and Emelyn Corpus, who alternately play the rakista Hannah, and; Jazztin Craig Claracay and Kevin Roises Tecson, who play alternates for the role of the hardworking student, Renz. Completing the cast are Davelyn Cuenco, Dave Feril, Ralph Mallapre, CJ Seville, Jan Echevarria, Dan Clever Giganton, Rennel Shane Ayong, Vince Lopez Ybanez, Liana San Diego, Mary Joy Irish Ostria, Elizabeth Caculba, Louise Leigh Valle, Chalee Sumalinog, Sayoka Takemura, Cath Vilano, and Coco Cuenco. Scharon Mani director and 2TinCans Producing Artistic Director, Sarah Mae EnclonaHenderson, expresses how delightful it is to be working with a talented group of young individuals, who are passionate about their craft. “I love how our actors, more than their roles in the musical, take on the responsibility of using theatre, music, and the arts as a way of promoting culture, diversity, and acceptance,” Henderson says. “In 2TinCans, we believe that as artists, we are called to entertain, educate, and empower.” Scharon Mani promises to be a grand and spectacular production with choreography by Disney alumnus Steve Banua Sanchez and musical direction by award-winning conductor Dennis Gregory Sugarol. Performances are on Dec. 7 (7:30PM), Dec. 8 and 9 (2PM and 7:30PM) at the Centerstage of SM Seaside City Cebu. Tickets are available online via 2tincans.yapsody.com and www.ticket2me.net.
