Three friends from an exclusive boys’ high school now on their senior years have gotten together to form a band for their Golden Anniversary Homecoming. They’ve pulled together their wives and teenage kids to join the band but after rehearsing for over a year excited about their performance, they are given notice that due to time constraints, their band can only perform three numbers.
Saddened by this news, they decided to make a musical instead. As the musical’s preparation unfold, memories and past histories of their teenage years and university life unfold.
It is a story of rediscovery in two timelines, reliving the turbulent times of the 70s as well as understanding the struggles and conflicts of today’s youth.
Silver Lining is, after all, a story of hope and redemption.
PJ Rebullida (Choreography), Charles Yee (Set Design), Tata Tuviera (Costume Design), David Esguerra (Lightung Design), and Joyce Esguerra (Video Design) complete the show’s Creative Team.
