On May 23, 2024, the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) asked on Facebook, “Naniniwala ka ba sa three-month rule?” [“Do you believe in the three-month rule?”]

It is a reference to a line in One More Chance and One More Chance, the Musical, which the theatre group is currently staging.

The same night, PETA announced during the musical’s curtain call that they would return in exactly three months for three more months.

One More Chance, The Musical is based on the film of the same name, directed by Cathy Garcia-Molina and produced by ABS-CBN Film Productions, Inc.

PETA’s musical adaptation brings the iconic love story of Popoy and Basha to life. It creates a more nuanced and expanded experience for audiences, thanks to Ben&Ben’s captivating and emotionally charged songs. The musical includes the band’s smash hits “Kathang Isip,” “Araw-Araw,” and “Leaves,” to name a few.

Audiences can expect a richer version that examines various lessons and themes from the vantage point of today’s generation, nearly two decades since the film’s premiere.

The musical features a powerhouse cast led by Sam Concepcion and CJ Navato, who will play Popoy, together with Anna Luna and Nicole Omillo as Basha.

Kiara Takahashi and Sheena Belarmino join them as Tricia, and Jef Flores and Jay Gonzaga as Mark. The musical will also feature Poppert Bernadas and Paji Arceo as Kenneth, Ada Tayao and Rica Laguardia as Krizzy, Via Antonio and Dippy Arceo as Anj, Jon Abella as JP, and Johnnie Moran as Chinno.

The cast also includes budding and veteran theater artists: Chez Cuenca, Coleen Paz, JC Galano, Matthew Barbers, Neomi Gonzales, Carla Guevara Laforteza, Raul Montesa, Floyd Tena, and Hazel Maranan.

One More Chance, The Musical is written by Ngu-Nario, directed by Maribel Legarda, assistant direction and dramaturgy by J-mee Katanyag, musical direction and sound design by Salomon, choreography by Michael Barry Que, set design by Ohm David, costume design by Carlo Pagunaling, lighting design by David Esguerra, and projection design by Bene Manaois.
