The word in the country’s theater scene is out. It was no less than Parokya ni Edgar frontman Chito Miranda that dropped Newport World Resorts’ upcoming musical title, “Buruguduystunstugudunstuy.” One look and ‘90s OPM enthusiasts will instantly recognize the musical’s title as the band’s sophomore album that spawned some of their smash hits. The tongue twister of a title, Buruguduystunstugudunstuy: Ang Parokya ni Edgar Musical is set to rock its way to the Newport Performing Arts Theater’s marquee.
Lead rocker Miranda made the announcement on the NWR Musicals social media pages on September 11. The post further revealed that the musical, developed by Newport World Resorts’ production outfit Full House Theater Company, is slated to make its epic debut on the grand stage next year.
Nationwide casting call is now underway for the new musical. Auditions are open for males and females, ages 18 to 50 years old, who can sing and dance. Those interested must submit their CV, including an audition video singing 16 bars of any Parokya ni Edgar track. Submissions are open from September 12 to October 1 and can be emailed to PNE2024@gmail.com.
Following the round of online submissions, a three-day in-person audition will take place from October 16 to 18. Aspirants who passed the initial screening will receive an invitation for the final callback auditions on October 24 to 26.
