Gantimpala Theater Foundation's Summer Musical Theater Workshop


Aside from educating its youth market, exposing them to various
theater forms, historical novels and literary works of National
Artists that are made into stage plays, Gantimpala Theater prides as
a company that discovers and nurtures promising talents through its
summer workshop program.

Continuing with this tradition of discoveries are Joel Molina and
Perry Escaño. These gentlemen might be considered as relative
unknowns to most lifestyle and entertainment editors, and the public
may not even care who they are what they do but for Gantimpala
Theater, the duo inches their way, slowly but surely to mainstream

Joel Molina (2004 workshop graduate) regular appears on television
thanks to the many commercials wherein he plays lead. Presently, he
is the field reporter for a food-seasoning product with the catchy
line, "ikaw, naka-meaty ka na rin ba?" Other prominent roles are
the suitor seen running away from the father of his beloved that he
did for a very popular flip-flop and he essayed the part of an urban
professional on the verge of sneezing for a vitamin C brand.

Fans and supporters of the latest Sam Milby, Zanjoe Marudo and Toni
Gonzaga starrer, You Got Me, also saw him as part of Gonzaga's SWAT

Perry Escaño (graduate of workshop class 2003), meanwhile, is busy
filming independent full length and short films. His biggest role
to date is that of Big Boy Gallardo in the Will Fredo phenomenal
maiden offering Compound. As Big Boy, Escaño provided the requisite
heat in the movie as the husband of Romina (Liza Diño) and the boy
toy of Jay (Jake Macapagal).

On primetime TV, he was the hired tormentor of Mark Herras in I Love
NY s and now, he plays as one of the corrupt cops headed by Antonio
Aquitania in Super Twins.

As member of Gantimpala Theater's Actors Company, the two were in
the Four Classics, Molina as Padre Salvi in Kanser (Noli Me Tangere)
and Escaño was Kabesang Tales in El Filibusterismo.

Escaño and Molina are proofs that the discipline and professionalism
that one gets from theater are advantageous to someone planning to
embark on a career in entertainment or the dramatic arts.

For those who wants to follow the footsteps of Joel and Perry,
Gantimpala Theater invites young men and women, ages 13 years-old
and above to its annual summer musical theater workshop which starts
on April 11 to May 19, Monday-Wednesday and Friday, 1pm to 5pm.

Enrollment and registration is currently on going at the Gantimpala
Theater Office, 2/F Open Air Auditorium Building, also in the
Luneta. Tuition fee is P5, 000 (inclusive of recital fee).

For other queries, please call 528-0603/536- 5860 or 0921-5286308.
