Finally, nahanap na ng Atlantis Productions (producer ng hit musical na Next To Normal at pati na rin ng bagong show na Elton John/Tim Rice pop rock musical Aida) ang bagay na maging leading lady sa Broadway Musical Disney’s The Little Mermaid, na magsisimula sa November 18 to December 11, 2011 sa Meralco Theatre.
Well, si Rachelle Anne Go ang mapalad na nakakuha ng lead role sa show na `yon.
“Rachelle Anne possesses all the qualities of Ariel. She is spunky, adventurous, kind, generous and a dreamer. She also has one of the most beautiful voices we have heard. I am sure she will thrill audiences the way she thrilled us at auditions,” sabi ni direk Bobby Garcia tungkol kay Rachelle Anne.
Siyanga pala, nagpunta pa sina direk Bobby Garcia at Chari Arespacochaga sa Hawaii last year to take an Asian Puppetry workshop which they will use for many of the sea creatures.
“We are thrilled, once again, to bring another beloved Disney classic to the Philippine Stage. Disney’s The Little Mermaid started the renaissance of Disney’s animation department and has some of the most memorable songs written for an animation classic. We are creating a Little Mermaid unlike any other. It will be an exciting fusion of East meets West elements.
“Our underwater kingdom will be completely Asian in theme and our above water world will be Western, representing two different worlds. We will also be using traditional forms of Asian and Western puppetry including Wayang shadow play, bunraku, nang kaloung and western hand puppetry. We can’t wait to begin!” sabi ni Bobby Garcia.
Makakasama ni Rachelle Ann si Erik Santos sa The Little Mermaid. Para sa tiket, tawag lang sa 892-7078 or 840-1187.
