The Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) stunned spectators on Sunday night after the final performance of "Walang Aray" with a surprise performance of Ben&Ben, revealing the company's upcoming production, "One More Chance the Musical," an adaptation of the cult film from Star Cinema that will feature the music of the wildly well-liked and award-winning Filipino nine-piece band.

The crowd erupted in cheers after lead cast members of “Walang Aray,” Gio Gahol and Marynor Madamesila, who play the lovers Tenyong and Julia, performed a scene from the movie as Popoy and Basha. The iconic lines, “She had me at my worst. You had me at my best" was enough to give clues to PETA’s next production.

Another astounding surprise followed the announcement as the set curtains lifted to reveal the Ben&Ben band. Kathang Isip and Araw-Araw, two of the band's emotional anthems that have defined an entire generation, were two of their hit songs, and the audience went crazy with their electric performance and sung along with them.

In the prime of their youth, the band has maintained a level of cultural relevance that earned its place in the history of contemporary Philippine music. For three years, Ben&Ben has emerged as the most streamed OPM Artist and Group in the Philippines, being the first Filipino act to surpass more than a billion streams.

“One More Chance the Musical” follows PETA’s string of successful jukebox musicals, from the phenomenal hit “Rak of Aegis,” which ran for seven seasons, to the critically acclaimed rap musical “Three Stars and a Sun,” featuring the music of Francis Magalona.

“One More Chance the Musical” is slated to open in April 2024 at the PETA Theater Center.
