3 Things Millennial and Gen Z Kids Can Expect from One More Chance The Musical

PETA’s adaptation of the 2007 blockbuster movie starring John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo will start its run on April 12.

One More Chance the Musical is fast approaching its first screening! Following its announcement last October 2023 during a show of Walang Aray, the musical is set to run beginning April 12 with a cast led by Sam Concepcion, CJ Navato, Anna Luna, and Nicole Omillo, who will be alternating on the roles of Popoy and Basha respectively.

Adapted from the blockbuster film starring John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo, One More Chance the Musical is more than just putting the movie to life on stage. It will tackle deeper stories that millennials who first watched the film and today’s Gen Z can relate to.

Here are just some of the things they can expect.

1. A deep discussion of today’s issues

Although the cast has yet to share much about the additions to the musical, the story promises to bridge the points of view of the millennials and Gen Z.

“The script is working towards not spoiling anything but it’s working to produce lines, dialogue which is you can say accepted or pinaka akop sa panahon ngayon,” CJ Navato shared during a sideline interview with cast members.

Nicole Omillo on the other hand pointed out that the music will help in bridging the storyline of the different generations. “With the help of the music, nakakatulong in making all the generations work from the story to the music, doon talaga mag-memerge.”

Michelle Ngu-Nario, the playwright of the show, promised that the musical would go deep without sacrificing the original storyline. “We brought depth to how we view the self in relationships, the choices that we make, and how these reverberate to our social circles, our family, friends, and society in general,” she explained.

2. The music of Ben and Ben

Ben and Ben—one of the country’s top bands—will be lending their voices in One More Chance the musical. How the production will incorporate their songs is something to look forward to, most especially for today’s generation.

The group, who are fans of the movie itself, admitted they were honored and at the same time amazed with how the production was able to include their hits into the scenes.

3. Enough time to catch the musical!

Families can catch the musical until June. PETA announced that due to overwhelming demand for the musical, they’ve added more dates for everyone to watch the musical. The play will now run until June 30.

Tickets can brought through PETA or Ticketworld with options for a Matinee or Evening show.
