Yes, it’s that time of the year, we already feel it, and the heat is on! Yes, summer is here! This is the time for annual Santacruzans and fiestas, the season when pubescent young men experience their first manly rites of passage – circumcision, the occasion to visit beaches and don the bikinis and board shorts, the period to attend workshops with the hope to unleash the inner artist, build esteem and confidence and gain new friends.

Gantimpala Theater, one of Manila’s leading dramatic arts companies, continue its summer tradition of rearing the young and the thespians in the field of theater as it opens its doors with three workshops.
