‘Face to Phase’… with Ai Ai and Gov. Ecleo

The musical extravaganza billed as “Face to Phase” promises to be an exciting one as it features comedienne and film actress Ai Ai de las Alas, dubbed “Concert Comedy Queen,” and Dinagat Islands’ Governor Jade Ecleo, who is likewise an accomplished performer, having been a member of the Bayanihan Dance Troupe and vocalist of the band called Amadeus.

Slated at the Aliw Theater on Sept. 12, “Face to Phase” also features Prince of Pop Erik Santos, singer/composer Dingdong Avanzado, and with the special participation of Metropolitan Manila Development Authority Chairman Bayani “BF” Fernando.

The show will be directed by Paulo Bustamante, with musical arrangements and musical direction by Elmer Blancaflor and Ms. Beth Martin. Choreography is by The Hotlegs. Joining them is the Tango Argentine Master, Jun Borja, who will choreograph the Tango Argentine Number and dance with the Gov. Jade Ecleo.

“Face To Phase” is produced for the benefit of the Jade Ecleo-Villaroman Foundation, which grants scholarships to poor and deserving students in the secondary and tertiary levels in Dinagat Islands.

The foundation also runs programs for the elderly such as the “Handog Regalo para sa Lolo at Lola.” It also extends financial assistance for the treatment of various medical/surgical conditions such as hydrocephalus and elephantiasis, and provides wheel chairs to disabled individuals in the community.

In addition to its socio-civic projects in Dinagat Islands, the foundation supports orphanages and institutions in Metro Manila such as the Associacion de Damas in Manila, White Cross in San Juan, the Philippine General Hospital’s Pediatric Charity Ward for terminally ill patients, Golden Acres Home for the Aged and Hospicio de San Jose’s Home for the Aged, among others.

The producer of the show is Ms. Emeellee O. Mercado, with Milton Ngu as executive producer. (MB)
