Ateneo Blue Rep's REAL-LIFE FAIRYTALES to Travel to South Korea
After a successful run as Ateneo Blue Repertory's 25th Season Premiere, blueREP will bring their original play, "Real-Life Fairytales," to South Korea to compete in the 11th Daegu International Musical Festival.
Real-Life Fairytales is a series of five vignettes about contemporary issues such as mental health, body image, and drug use as examined through the lens of the magical and unusual. These stories talk about the ugly truths that are hidden deep beneath the seemingly perfect surface, aiming to bring awareness to these issues that people find difficult to confront.
This musical scene-cycle is inspired by songs composed by a homegrown blueREP talent and award-winning pianist, Ejay Yatco, who also musically directs the show. The vignettes are written by Atenean students, Gabbi Campomanes, Helene Enriquez, Stephanie Escuadro and Robyn Jereza under the guidance of the show's director, Missy Maramara, instructor in the Theater Arts Program of the Ateneo's Department of Fine Arts. Yatco and Maramara were nominated in 2016 by BroadwayWorld.com for their work in Real-Life Fairytales.
With a creative team, cast, and crew of 19 Ateneo alumni and students and beloved choreographer Franco Ramos from De La Salle's College of Saint Benilde, Ateneo Blue Repertory will also be representing the Philippines and the Ateneo De Manila University, as they go international for the very first time. Real-Life Fairytales will deliver urgency, honesty, and even just a little bit of magic to our own reality.
