HONG KONG—Filipino children of the newly formed Teatro Filipino performed on Aug. 31 a part of a musical "Jose Rizal" before an audience at the Philippine Consulate General as part of the celebration of "Buwan ng Wika."
The all-Filipino theater group in Hong Kong aims to introduce the Filipino heritage to Pinoy children living overseas.
Consul General Bernardita Catalla said the theater group is born out of the Sentro Rizal project of the Philippine government that seeks to introduce Filipino culture to Filipino youth abroad.
The full Rizal Musical will be staged in June 2016 and will be part of the Philippine Independence Day celebration in the territory. — LBG, GMA News
