Cast of MATILDA THE MUSICAL Manila Staging Announced

Saturday, October 14, 2017

I have been able to see how they've been working hard to put this musical on stage since early this year. They've held auditions left and right trying to find that perfect kid, her friends, and an ensemble cast that would pretty much spell how the Manila staging of MATILDA would actually look like. It's one of the best movies and theater productions I've seen internationally and I'm sure it'll be a cinch to actually do this with a very talented Filipino cast.

Included in the cast are three greats, Telesa Marie “Esang” De Torres who came from ABS-CBN’s The Voice and the Les Miserables (for their Asian tour), Uma Naomi Martin who did A Little Princess  and Felicity Kyle Napuli who already was awarded Outstanding Child Performer in the past Gawad Musika Awards (a local award body). Aside from three great singers, they've also announced Gabrielle Aerin Ong and Maria Ericka Peralejo as Lavander, Denise Fidel Arteta and Chi Chi Tan as Amanda, Nicole Chien and Ella Gonzalez as Alice, Alba Berenguer-Testa and Chantel Marie Guinid as Hortensia, Josh Nubla and Miguel Suarez as Bruce, Rhythm Alexander and Ian Albert Magallona as Eric, Gabo Tiongson and Pablo Miguel Palacpac as Nigel and John Joseph Miraflores and Teddy
Velasco as Tommy. They will be playing the classmates of Matilda in this production.

To play as antagonists, Jamie Wilson will play the tough and mean Miss Trunchbull. I'm sure she'll be having lots of fun throwing those kids around. The caring and lovely Miss Honey will be played by seasoned premier theater actress Cris Villonco. While Joaquin Valdes and Carla Guevara-Laforteza will play as Matilda's biological parents Mr. and Mrs. Wormwood, they will be very colorful, mean and dysfunctional so be ready. MATILDA's Manila staging will be directed by Bobby Garcia and their choreography will be done by Ms. Cecile Martinez. The play will be presented by Promil and Metrobank Card Corporation. Matilda The Musical will happen at the Meralco Theater from November 10 to December 10 this year and will happen only on Fridays at 8PM, Saturdays and on Sundays at 2PM and 8PM.

If you want to watch the show with kids, it is recommended for ages 7 and up.Ticket prices are Php 1500 to Php 4000. You can purchase them at Ticketworld 891-9999 or their website For more information about the musical, visit or the Ticketworld website, they have ample amount of information there.
