TXS previously staged Gamutin Ang Bayan, a twinbill production on peace and Philippine politics, in September 2015; and Istoryahi Lang Ko, a musical that featured positive child discipline, in December 2015, with a re-staging last January.
Rody Vera’s PINATAY SI MAYOR is a musical satire about voters’ education and Philippine elections. What seems to be a promising future for the townspeople of Talon Pikit was shattered when their newly elected mayor was murdered before he could assume office. Officials could not point out the motive or the killer. Could it be that the murder is linked to politics? Or was it a personal issue? Is the killer one of the townspeople of Talon Pikit, or a political rival?
In line with their Advocacy Theater, the Xavier Stage hopes to share the message: VOTE WISELY AND BE VILIGANT AFTER ELECTIONS.
PINATAY SI MAYOR features Ms. Muriel Lomadilla as the incumbent Mayor Vangie Palaban, one of the suspects in the murder. The ensemble cast is a combination of experienced and new actors from the TXS resident pool of artists.
