Nang Dalawin ng Pag-ibig si Juan Tamad

A play "Nang Dalawin ng Pag-ibig si Juan Tamad" is based on National Artist Nick Joaquin's story that is included in his Pop Stories for Groovy Kids (1979). Critics describe the story as the correct explanation why Maria Makiling forever nurses a broken heart and why Juan Tamad remains a pop idol, a model for the young. It is a play about a love triangle among the Filipino legends Mariang Makiling, Juan Tamad and Monte (Mt. Banahaw). The play is a farewell performance of the group which is going to Moscow, Russia for the 12th World Theatre Congress. The program started with a prayer by Rev. Father Diomedes A. Burgos, MSC School Director San Sebastian School followed by the singing of the National Anthem and different messages given by SK Federation Chairman Aymand Kaylle A. Miranda, Dr. Catalina P. Paez, CESO VI Schools Division Superintendent, Dep-Ed Science City of Muñoz, Mr. Fernando "Nanding" Josef, Actor and Artistic Director Tanghalang Pilipino and Hon. Nestor L. Alvarez, Ph.D., City Mayor. The play which is in partnership with the Tanghalang Pilipino and the Cultural Center of the Philippines was showcased this July 30, 2018 at the Science City of Muñoz, Nueva Ecija Pag-asa Gymnasium.
