2012 marks the company’s 45 years since Repertory Philippines staged its first play, ‘Miss Julie’ in 1967. The company has gone a long way since those days when there were only seven people in their audience (three of which were paying customers). They had to beg, borrow, and sneak most of what was needed for the productions in their struggle to become a professional theatre company.
The company’s passion and hard work has paid off as Repertory Philippines, considered to be the country’s premier English-speaking theater group that produced memorable and successful productions with acting talents that this country can be proud of, the likes of Lea Salonga, Monique Wilson, Pinky Amador and more; continuing the legacy that Ms. Zenaida ‘Bibot’ Amador and Ms. Baby Barredo started.
