Jon Santos’ Trumperte Goes to the PETA Theater Center this October 2018!

As part of its 51st Season, the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) hosts Jon Santos’ TRUMPERTE this October 26 & 27 at the PETA Theater Center.

Hello Sweeties,

I always look forward to watching plays and events by PETA, this time they will be hosting a show by the very talented and spoofer Jon Santos.

Jon takes to the PETA Stage with his hilarious and on point impressions of Donald Trump and Digong Duterte and a lot of other very interesting characters. The catch is he will only be performing for a very limited  two night run. #TRUMPERTE is written by Jon Santos himself, Enrico Santos and Joel Mercado with the stage direction by Michael Williams.

Trump -(Dut) erte

TRUMPERTE (the mash-up of the show character names) is a special project for Jon because this caps his 30 years in show business. This show only proves than no one can replace him as the top political impersonator and the sharpest comic barometer of society.

PETA’S A Game of Trolls Returns this October 2018!

Pro-HR netizens will probably go beastmode on statements like these. But before you go lit AF, maybe it’s good to take a step back, look at the bigger picture and think if “making patol” online will do you any good. Instead of wasting precious time arguing with faceless mythical beings who hide behind screens, why not log-out, get off your mobilephone or laptop, and invite family and friends to go to the theater with you, and watch A GAME OF TROLLS, PETA’s martial law musical for millennials (and millennials-at-heart!). 


But what’s it about? A GAME OF TROLLS is the story of Hector (Myke Salomon / TJ Valderrama), a professional keyboard warrior for Marshalls of History, a troll center who is running a pro-Martial Law campaign lead by Bimbam (Vince Lim).  Hector, being the tactless and detached Internet tough guy that he is, effortlessly infuriates anti-martial law advocates with his insensitive and random unsolicited comments about the victims of Martial law, making him the top guy in the trolling game. This prompts the “visits” of the Ghosts of Martial Lawfrom the Internet Cloud, reminding him to never forget their struggle to liberate the country from the dictatorship.  Their stories, along with his own mother’s, Tere (Upeng Galang-Fernandez / Gail Billones), made Hector reexamine his involvement in the trolling business.  


Directed by Maribel Legarda, written by Liza Magtoto and music by Vince De Jesus, (the same team that brought you Caredivas), A GAME OF TROLLS is not only an ode to the heroes of Martial Law. It is an appeal to the millennials to #NeverForget that the dark history that took awaydemocracy decades ago has spawned the same strain of oppressor that is taking our democracy away right now. It is a reminder that by understanding the history of the people’s struggle for democracy, we are also keeping in mind to #NeverAgain allow a tyrant to steal it away from us. It is anattempt to stimulate discourse about truth and history in the age of social media: to look beyond the memes and fake news, and to encourage thinking critically and acting responsibly both online and offline.


So what are you waiting for? Book tickets now, watch withyour family and friends, and, regardless of opinions, let’s make theater a safe space for conversation, reflection, and critical thinking. Tuloy po kayo sa PETA Theater Center, kuwentuhan tayo!


A GAME OF TROLLS will have a limited two-weekend run on Oct 13-14 and 20-21, 2018 at the PETA Theater Center.
