Viva Atlantis Theatricals opens its first ever season with the much applauded and well-loved musical, "The Full Monty". Based on the hit movie of the same title, the musical has a book by the multi-awarded Terrence Mc Nally with music and lyrics by David Yazbek.
Viva Atlantis Theatricals has assembled a stellar cast all set to “let it go” for Manila.
Leading the pack is singer, actor and TV personality -- Mark Bautista playing Jerry Lukowski. Jerry is divorced and on the brink of losing custody of his most beloved son as he continues to fall behind on his child support payments. He is inspired by the women’s enthusiasm for a Chippendales performance in their town and wills the group into existence as he himself finds himself growing up.
Returning to his roots, comedian and TV host, Arnel Ignacio steps into the role of Harold Nichols. Harold is an unemployed mill supervisor who now is faced with the challenge of keeping up the lavish lifestyle he has set up for himself and his wife.
Joining Mark and Arnel is singer and recording artist, Marco Sison. Marco plays Noah ‘Horse’ Simmons a retired mill worker who is constantly trying to live up to his name.
Veteran theater actor Jamie Wilson takes on the role of Dave Bukatinsky. Dave is Jerry’s best friend who is trying to find his way to feeling like a man again, despite his body issues and not having work.
Singer and now theater actor OJ Mariano joins the cast as Malcolm MacGregor. Malcolm who still lives with his mother, now works as the night security guard of the shut down mill.
Rounding off our band of six is Nino Alejandro who plays Ethan Girard. A member of the Alejandro which includes uncle Hajji Alejandro and cousin Rachel, Nino continues to perform with a band and is a sought after arranger and record producer.
