“With the kind of musical talents we have in the Pagcor 5, we decided that the best way to showcase their diverse singing styles would be through a Broadway review where they can let their voices soar.”
This is how Bong Quintana, assistant vice president for entertainment of Philippine Gaming Corp. (Pagcor), describes the creative process behind the show Pagcor 5 Goes Broadway, which will be shown the whole month of May in all the Casino Filipino branches nationwide.
The show will feature well-loved songs from some of the most popular Broadway productions in the past 50 years. Songs like “Don’t Cry For Me Argentina” from Evita, “I Dream the Dream” from Les Miserables, “Something’s Coming” from the Westside Story and other songs from Disney’s musicals such as Alladin, Little Mermaid, Beauty and the
Beast, The Lion King and Tarzan. Medley of all-time favorite songs from The Sound of Music and Mama Mia will also be performed.
The members of Pagcor 5, which is the in-house singing group of Casino Filipino, are Froilan Canlas, Joyce, Dash Camporaso, Steve Fernandez and E-boy Quizol.
They are all winners of the annual OPM@Pagcor singing competition.
“We are all very excited to do the show,” says Joyce, the competition’s first grand winner.
“We’ve been practicing very hard and we know that it’s going to be a good show.”
Also joining the tour is veteran, award-winning thespian Robert Sena, who will be lending his own unique style to the performances.
“It is an honor to be sharing the same stage with him. He is a great addition to the show and the audiences will be in for a treat,” says Froilan Canlas, the grand winner of OPM@Pagcor 2.
