FO GUANG SHAN Philippines in cooperation with the Buddha’s Light International Association will restage Siddhartha: The Musical at the Main Theater of the Cultural Center of the Philippines on July 17, 2 and 8 p.m. Directed by Sarah Mae Enclona-Henderson and with musical direction by Jude Gitamondoc, Siddhartha: The Musical tells the story of Siddhartha, the prince who renounced his royal status to seek enlightenment, eventually becoming the Buddha. The musical is based on the book The Biography of Sakyamuni Buddha by Venerable Master Hsing Yun, the founder of the Fo Guang Shan Buddhist order. Most of the songs used in the musical are also based on the writings of the Venerable Master. All proceeds of the restaging of the musical will benefit Guang Ming College in Manila for the training of scholars from financially challenged families around the country in the fields of Performing Arts and Buddhist Studies.
