Trumpets to Stage The Bluebird of Happiness Starting September 27, 2013

Trumpets, Asia's first professional gospel theater group, is celebrating its 23rd year this 2013. The group is known for its blockbuster productions for the whole family. But, other than providing entertainment, Trumpets makes sure that every material they present will leave an eternal message that audiences can take home with them. 

Later this month, Trumpets will be staging its big musical comeback entitled The Bluebird of Happiness, aimed to teach people the valuable meaning of true happiness. I feel that this is very timely because a lot of individuals these days are constantly searching and going to great lengths to discover what can truly make them happy.

Audie and Jaime
I agree with Audie Gemora, Trumpets President, when he said that, nowadays people do not know what will make them happy anymore. "We seek material things and do crazy things that sometimes make us forget what is essential. Sometimes, happiness is already staring us in the face but we sadly do not recognize it."

That is the reason why Trumpets sees the importance and timeliness of this show. "Everyone in this world is looking for happiness in one form or another. And, through this musical, we hope that the audience see themselves reflected in the lives of the central characters, Mytyl and Tyltyl," acknowledge show director Jaime Del Mundo

The Bluebird of Happiness is based on the play by Maurice Maeterlinck but is transformed into a brand new, proudly Filipino musical with book and lyrics by Jaime del Mundo with original music by Rony Fortich. The production is highly anticipated to have everything audiences love in a family show: a delightful story, colorful characters, beautiful music, fantastic production design, brilliant staging, hearty laughs, touching moments and, most importantly, a valuable lesson.

I got to watch a sneak preview of this play the other day in Greenbelt 5 and was very impressed at the vocal prowess of the children who can definitely hold their own along with the talented adults they sang with on stage. It was also a pleasure seeing familiar faces.

The approximately 50-strong cast of notable actors include: 
Mayen Bustamante-Cadd as Mama Tyl, the children's mother 
Lynn Sherman and Robbie Zialcita as Tylette and Tylo, their pet cat and dog who are magically given human form to be their companions 
Jennifer Villegas-dela Cruz as Berylune, the fairy who starts them on their quest for true happiness Carla Guevarra-Laforteza as Light who provides illumination to their path 
Joy Virata and Steve Cadd as Grandma Tyl and Grandpa Tyl, the children's grandparents whom they meet in the Land of Memory
Joel Trinidad as Night, the dark villain who plots the children's failures
Raymund Concepcion as Father Time, whom they meet in the Land of the Future
Alessa Zialcita and Chimmi Kohchet-Chua as Mytyl
Anton Posadas and Guido Gatmaytan as Tyltyl
