#TheaterPH - Dulaang UP’s Kung Paano Nanalo sa Karera si Rosang Taba

The COVID-19 epidemic that has caused a global health catastrophe forced Dulaang UP to take a two-year break, but in November 2022, the organization reopened its doors with the performance of Floy Quintos' The Reconciliation Dinner on the University Theater Main Hall Stage.

Dulaang UP is thrilled to be back on stage with an adaptation of Dean Francis Alfar's How Rosang Taba Won a Race, a children's book that amplifies the voices of the oppressed, following the successful run of The Reconciliation Dinner, Dulaang UP's inaugural offering for its 45th theatre season.

The award-winning playwrights Maynard Manansala and Rody Vera wrote the adaptation, which is directed by José Estrella in association with her mentees Issa Manalo Lopez and Mark Dalacat. While Dalacat is a graduating BA Theatre Arts student from the Department of Speech Communication and Theatre Arts, Lopez is now DUP's artistic director.

In Kung Paano Nanalo sa Karera si Rosang Taba, a woman's bravery, intelligence, and tenacity changed the course of history. In order to ensure that Rosang Taba's legacy endures into the present era, her great grandkids narrate Rosang Taba's accomplishment in the adaption.

Kiki Baento plays the titular role of Rosang Taba alongside Jojo Cayabyab who plays Gobernador Heneral. Joining Baento and Cayabyab are equally talented film and theatre actors Skyzx Labastilla, Peewee O' Hara, Victor Sy, Aldo Vencilao, Quinea Babas, Ynna Rafa, Dyas Adarlo, Mari Palaganas, Owel Pepito, and Pau Vengano. 

The proceeds of the show will be used for the rehabilitation and renovation of the Wilfrido Ma. Guerrero Theater—the home of over 150 Dulaang UP plays in the last four decades.
