The Cultural Center of the Philippines brings together popular original Filipino musicals featuring the original casts of these productions and the best musical theater performers. A gala event billed as MUSIKAL! A Musical Theater Celebration of CCP's 45th Anniversary takes place on September 5 and 6, 2014 at 8:00 pm at the Tanghalang Nicanor Abelardo (CCP Main Theater).

"This is going to be a landmark convergence of Philippine musical theater talent. A rare night where one can experience the melodies of the composers, the spectacle put together by the directors, the passion of the ensemble and the splendid musicality that Filipino musical theater performers are known for worldwide," CCP’s artistic director Chris Millado enthuses. 

Millado also directs the show in collaboration with the original directors and producing companies like Tanghalang Pilipino, Ballet Philippines, Philippine Educational Theater Association, Trumpets, Spotlight Artists Centre, Bit by Bit Company, 4th Wall Theater Company, Green Wings, and Ateneo Blue Rep.
