I have been involved in theater since 2000, and worked with The U.P. Repertory Company, Dulaang U.P., Tanghalang Ateneo, Tanghalang Pilipino, and in the process has met many members of other theater organizations, and that has made me familiar with all the struggles a stage actor or even worker, face for the love of the art. So I was quite happy when I learned that an organization was made to support the theater actors of the country, in the form of the Theater Actors Guild (TAG).
In an effort to provide health cards for the Theater Actors Guild (TAG)’s members, the organization, with the leadership of Kalila Aguilos, is mounting its first major fundraising activity. Local theater actors often sacrifice their health among other things for the sake of “the show must go on” and would rather suffer than deny the audience of the joy of watching live theater.* The fundraising activity is a small step but it is definitely a start, so let us all help out and support our local theater actors by buying tickets to the Himala gala night on March 15. This small token of support will go a long way.
