The Mobile Theater Foundation (formerly Tanghalang Sta. Ana) stages their annual community theater tradition, Martir sa Golgota, a play based on the senakulo this pre-Lenten season.
It has attracted well-known celebrities and theater actors who perform pro bono.
The road to Cavalry is convoyed on the streets giving the audiences a closer encounter with Christ's passion. Current social issues have become integral parts of this modern-day senakulo adding more relevance to the passion play.
Under the direction of Lou Veloso, Golgota features around 70 actors, mostly volunteer residents of Sta. Ana and invited TV, movie and stage personalities, one of them is character actor Perry Escaño who plays the role of Pontius Pilate.
Playing Jesus Christ this time are Al Gatmaitan alternating with Jojo Riguerra.
Other cast members are Joe Gruta, Bodjie Pascua, Rita Iringan, Archi Adamos, Abel Napuran, Andy Bais, Don Umali, Arkin da Silva, Jojo Bolado, Mira Hipolito, CJ Mangahis, Roselle Buenaventura, Jeanette Queblatin, Heidi Arima, Ces Aldaba, Richard Manabat and the Manila Mobile Theater Foundation Actor's company
