Shaun Ocrisma (ZsaZsa Zaturnnah, Laro) is really thrilled to be a part of such a fresh and brave production! He shares, “Truly such an honor working with such a talented cast! It’s quite interesting to see how actors from different backgrounds and different generations would join forces to tell a fun yet relevant story. I am ecstatic and absolutely thrilled to be part of this family.”
Like previously announced, the musical is written by Galerie Joaquin’s Jack Teotico (music and lyrics) and 9-time Palanca-awardee Joshua Lim So (book and lyrics) and will be directed by PETA’s Artistic Director Maribel Legarda (Rak of Aegis, Care Divas), with musical direction, arrangement and additional music by Vince Lim (Walang Aray).

Silver Lining 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.
It will run for 6 shows only from October 20-22 and October 27-29 at the Carlos P. Romulo Auditorium, RCBC Plaza in Makati.
Tickets will be on sale starting this September.
