4th Wall Productions presents "Rivalry, the Musical" (February 12-March 11, 2012)

There is always a competition between La Salle and Ateneo in almost all fields - may it be sports, literature, writing, theater and other arts. Putting this subject in a musical theater is a rare opportunity.

Rivalry: The Musical produced by 4th Wall Productions is showing at the Meralcon Theater in Ortigas, Pasig City that started on January 27 until March 11, 2012. Ed Gatchalian, the show’s executive producer is also its musical director, composer, arranger and orchestrator.

Completing the triumvirate were well-known theater actors and directors namely Jaime Del Mundo, who wrote the book, and directed the musical; and Joel Trinidad, who penned the lyrics.

Rivalry: The Musical  is a musical feast for every member of the family. Different issues were tackled like the parent vs. child, the teenage boys vs. teenage girls, varsity games specifically ‘basketball’, love and courtship, academic excellence and sports, and other related conflicts among family members. It's an original production about the real lives of students and how they cope up with day-to-day family rules and chores, school norms and academic proficiency.

Rivalry: The Musical was written with 1968 as its setting --- an appropriate time when Ateneo and La Salle were still part of the NCAA together with San Sebastian, Letran, San Beda, Mapua and Jose Rizal competing for the annual coveted title as ‘champions’ of the varsity league.
