Trumpets ushers in the return of big musicals to the local stage with what promises to be an even bigger run of its 2020 hit production “Joseph the Dreamer” at the Maybank Performing Arts Theater on July 15-31, 2022.
Top-billed by Sam Concepcion in the titular role, the musical’s 2020 shows, which consistently sold-out and received thunderous standing ovations, closed just a few days before lockdown was mandated nationwide due to the COVID-19 pandemic.
In this year’s production, Concepcion returns as Joseph and will be playing opposite two members of Philippine Live Entertainment royalty – Mr. Pure Energy Gary Valenciano and the King of Philippine Musical Theater Audie Gemora.
Valenciano and Gemora alternate as Jacob, Joseph’s father, while Kayla Rivera (Asenath), Carlo Orosa (Pharaoh), and Bituin Escalante (Rachel, Joseph’s mother) reprise the roles they portrayed in the previous run.
Carla Guevarra-Laforteza and Neo Rivera will also play Rachel and Joseph, respectively, in some shows.
The other members of the cast are Alys Serdenia, Aldo Vencilao, RJ Dela Fuente, Matthew Barbers, Carlos Canlas, Paul Anthony Valdez, Jim Ferrer, Renz Bernardo, Edrei Tan, Dan Delgado, Diego Aranda, Eggo Velasco, Mateo Jimenez, Anton Posadas, Kiara Dario, Jom Logdat, Coleen Paz, Samantha Libao, Kathleen Francisco, Justine Narciso, and young actors, Elai Estrella, and Eli Luis.
The production’s Dream Team consists of Paolo Valenciano, the country’s foremost concert director, Associate Director Nelsito Gomez, Musical Director Myke Salomon, Choreographer MJ Arda of the A-Team, and the award-winning Production Designer Mio Infante.
“Joseph The Dreamer” 2022 will run at the Maybank Performing Arts Theater, BGC this July 15-31.
