Newport World Resorts’ Full House Theater Company (FHTC) is finally making its much-awaited return to the theater scene. After four years, the hit musical, Ang Huling El Bimbo is coming back in an epic way at the award-winning Newport Performing Arts Theater. New and familiar faces are set to take the spotlight for the upcoming 2023 run of the phenomenal production.

Original cast members affectionately return to the show with a smile and renewed gusto. Seasoned thespians, Gian Magdangal, Gab Pangilinan, and Topper Fabregas reprise their lead roles as Hector and young Joy, and young Anthony respectively.  Other cast members reprising their roles are Jamie Wilson as Sergeant Banlaoi and Sheila Francisco as Tiya Dely. Their outstanding portrayals from the previous runs earned praise and adoration from critics and theater-goers alike.

Adding a novel spin to the show are the new cast members freshly minted from the auditions held in July. Veteran recording artist and music producer Nino Alejandro lends his voice and acting chops as Anthony. Indie folk artist Bullet Dumas who recently made his theater debut this year will be taking on the role of Emman in the musical. Rising singer and GMA-7’s “The Clash” grand finalist Anthony Rosaldo will play young Hector. Completing the lead cast lineup are Gawad Buhay award-winning theater actor Paw Castillo as young Emman, and voice teacher Katrine Sunga as Joy.

Ang Huling El Bimbo The Musical will run starting April 2023, and is directed by Dexter Santos and written by Dingdong Novenario. The well-loved musical features music of one of the most iconic Pinoy rock bands and tells the tale of the friendship of Joy, Hector, Anthony, and Emman as they navigate life. 

The award-winning musical staged more than 100 successful shows since its premiere in 2018 until the sold-out reruns in March 2019 and July 2019. In 2020, a recorded 2019 performance was made available for streaming on ABS-CBN Entertainment’s social pages. The streaming event raised more than Php 12 million in donations for ABS-CBN Foundation and garnered 7 million views in 48 hours.  The musical returned as a live concert for the homecoming show dubbed “Ang Muling El Bimbo” last December 2021.
