This year Teatro Rizal, the official theater guild of the University, is continuing its expansion and broadening of its network to raise the blue and gold flag in the bigger arena of theater and the arts. Since June of this year Teatro Rizal is actively involving in activities that promote the causes, mission, vision, and values of the University in various platforms.
Journey to PARC
Teatro Rizal is blessed to be granted with student ambassadorship with the Performing Arts Recreation Center (PARC) Foundation. This creates opportunity for the Rizalian Artist to have safe space for arts and to expand their experience in various disciplines of the Theater. Last August 2019, Teatro Rizal restages its original Maid in Factory at the blackbox theater of PARC Foundation.
The Mandaluyong Arts Council
Aiming to intensify its presence, Teatro Rizal also became an active player for Mandaluyong Arts Council. Currently they are touring in a musical “Mahal Kong Mandaluyong” with Mandaluyong Ballet and Mandaluyong Children’s Choir in different barangays spreading cultural awareness and patriotism among mandaleños.
Love, Dance, Repeat
For the future, Teatro Rizal together with JRU Chorale is working for a production for the University Week 2020. An original musical that will celebrate Filipino culture of courtship, dances, love, and resilience.
