Musical Theater Dream Project – Cebu

The video is an excerpt of a “progress report video” created to support a LIVE musical production number performed in Taiwan as part of BLIA-Cebu’s special gift for Ven. Master Hsing Yun in celebration of his natal day.

It highlights the dream that evolved after the successful run of Siddhartha, the musical which featured an all Cebuano cast and crew.

Join us in making the dream a reality.
