School Spirit takes Center Stage as “Rivalry” Returns!Wednesday, December 26, 2012
Good news! Especially to those who missed out on the all-original and all-new Filipino production of Rivalry: Ateneo-La Salle The Musical!
It’s another opportunity to bring out the pom-poms and prepare the loudest cheer as 4th Wall Theater Company brings back the well-applauded and well-loved musical starting January 25, 2013 at the Meralco Theater.
School spirit is very much alive as Ateneans and La Sallites clash onstage and engage in an intense battle replete with rousing musical numbers, impressive choreography and exchanges of wit and humor. The competition between the two schools is so engaging that even those who are neither from Ateneo nor from La Salle enjoyed the show.
The “Rivalry” cast, led by theater actors Jeremy Aguado, Nel Gomez and Cara Barredo, serenaded the online community, mostly bloggers, with numbers from the musical like “Boy from La Salle” and “What If.”

The creative team composed of Gatchalian, director Jaime Del Mundo and lyricist Joel Trinidad gamely mingled with the bloggers and expressed their thoughts about their work.
Just to give you an idea about it, Rivalry is set in 1968 when Ateneo and La Salle were still part of the NCAA with other schools such as Letran, San Beda, Mapua and Jose Rizal. The story revolves around two families headed by fathers belonging to opposing schools. Their sons not only deal with school and basketball rivalry but also vie for the love of one girl. The exciting events unfold in a series of creatively choreographed scenes coupled with rousing, originally-crafted musical numbers with inspiring performances from a cast of talented performers.
4th Wall Theater Company brings together creative talents to bring to life an engaging, Broadway-worthy musical that’s proudly Philippine-made. Tickets to “Rivalry: Ateneo-La Salle The Musical” are available at Ticketworld outlets. Visit www.ticketworld.com.ph or call (02) 891-9999.
See you there!
