Manila, Philippines, September 29, 2011 -- Repertory Philippines (REP), the country's premier English-language theater company, and Stages Production Specialists Inc. (Stages), a fast growing event and talent management firm, have started their month-long run of Anthony Drewe and George Stiles' musical incarnation of Peter Pan at Meralco Theatre.

Philippine theater stalwarts Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo (also REP's associate artistic director) and Jaime del Mundo direct teen star Sam Concepcion, who plays Peter Pan, the boy who wouldn't grow up, and Michael Williams, who plays Captain Hook, a flawed but lovable villain.

John Batalla designs the lights; Gino Gonzales creates the sets; and Raven Ong designs the costumes.

The cast include Cara Barredo and Tippy Dos Santos as Wendy Moira Angela Darling, the eldest of the Darling children and the "mother" of the Lost Boys; Nacho Tambunting as John Darling and Juan Miguel Santos as Michael Darling, Wendy's younger siblings; Robie Zialcita as Smee, Captain Hook's comic sidekick; Kyla Rivera as Tiger Lily, a willful Indian princess; Joy Virata as the Narrator/Older Wendy; Jaime del Mundo as Mr. Darling; and Pinky Marquez as Mrs. Darling.

Drewe and Stiles, who are best known for their work on Honk! and Disney's Mary Poppins, have collaborated with book writer Willis Hall for this stage adaptation of J.M. Barrie's beloved classic.

The musical, which first opened in Denmark in 1996, won several awards including The Orchestra Award and Best Song for "When I Kill Peter Pan" at the International Musical of the Year in 1996. The musical was also broadcast on BBC Radio 3 during its New Year's Day concert in 2001 and was presented at the Royal Festival Hall in London in 2002.
