Congratulations

My granddaughter Cris Villonco was born with a hole in her heart, on Oct. 17, 1983, and that worried her Mama so. Her heart healed naturally, but when she was growing up sweet and at times too timid, it was my turn to worry. She was unlike her older sister whom we called The Feisty One, and certainly very much unlike me, the lola of super-taray reputation. As a young girl, she hardly broke any rule and was forever smiling, forever eager to please. When I heard she wanted to be in show business, my first reaction was: “Oh, my God! How will she survive?”

It turns out I worried for nothing.

After a triumphant long-run as one of the two Marias in the recently concluded Sound of Music at the Resorts World, she’s come up with another win, from the fourth Philstage Gawad Buhay awards, a most credible body, as one can tell from its nominees and winners. First, here’s the complete list of winners that prove how very much theater is alive and kicking here in the country.

For Outstanding Play, William (PETA); Outstanding Musical Production, Care Divas (PETA); Outstanding Classical Dance Production, Swan Lake (Ballet Manila); and Outstanding Modern Dance Production,
Encantada (Ballet Philippines)..... MORE
