Most of you might know by now that this blog is not just about my personal and showbiz kaeklataan but it also serves as a “link” or “bridge” to those ordinary people who have extraordinary talents with super extraordinary dreams and yet they didn’t know where & how & with whom can they show their skills. Now that everyone knows Marco Manalac got the Alan Strang role for the Repertory Philippines’ rendition of “Equus”, ’twas this blog who published an announcement for an audition courtesy of Oliver Oliveros’ feature at Broadwayworld.com. ‘Twas this blog who gave a damn about it.

PROJECT SEÑORITA CASTING CALL
(A Feature Film/Dramatic Thriller from AutoDidact Productions)
Tired of life in the city, Donna, a gay sex worker decided to move to a quiet, domestic life in the province. Her new yet simple life now consists, among other things, of taking care of Tomas, an OFW’s son. Donna eventually discovers that her former regular client is the town’s political power broker and mayor aspirant, Ricky Verano. Donna convinces herself that, in order to turn her life completely around – and keep the town from eventually becoming as corrupt and rotten as the city – Verano’s opponent, the idealist & political neophyte, Pepe Holganza must win the election. Donna’s machinations proved successful but at what cost?
