“The Philippines is rich with wonderfully talented performers and we are excited to not only bring this wonderful production to Manila for the very first time, but to welcome to the cast young Filipino actors who will join performers from South Africa and around the world in bringing this show to audiences in Manila and beyond,” commented Producer of the international tour, Michael Cassel.
