The Magical Christmas at Jollitown was awesome and a world class performance!
The show was co-directed by Audie Gemora, the scientist father was played by Noni BUencamino, and fairy storyteller was Menchu Lauchengco-Yulo. The kids were from Stages. =) (Wow, I was actually pleasantly surprised at the world class cast.)
It was based from the fantasy world of Jollitown from Jollibee's hit television series. It was the setting of lead character Brian’s journey as he discovers the fun aspect of sharing with the Jollifriends. All the while, his father, a scientist also discovers he needs to share more of his time with Brian. Their happy adventures at Jollitown truly entertained and educated the audience-young and old alike.
" The show was a vehicle for Jollibee to teach positive values such as sharing and learning to give a part of oneself to our children in a fun, creative and entertaining way while bringing Filipino families closer together, “ shares Gold F. Tantoco, VP for Jollibee Marketing.
On a personal end, I was touched by the show because I was able to relate to it. I work from home, and there are times that I am engrossed in doing a blog post, and I would ignore Aidan who was asking me to play with him. It taught me to listen and be more attentive to the needs of my son.
