What did audiences say?
"Watching Real Life Fairytales, I was so moved I couldn't take a picture. It didn't seem fair or appropriate. Certain memories and feelings are only for the heart and memory. I know I don't take a picture when I know deep down I do not need reminding of a moment. I will remember always, not just the stories or the performances, but the deftness of vision, the confidence of directing, the shaping of form of thought and expression." - Rica Bolipata Santos
"We are not our trauma. Play your life by ear. Lessons like these need to be retold, and I'll be there at the restaging." - Deineol Lopez

About the organization:
Founded in February 1991, marked by the opening night of the organization's first production, "Pippin", Ateneo Blue Repertory is the premier musical theatre organization of the Ateneo De Manila University. 25 years ago, it began as nothing more than a humble project among a group of friends. Now it celebrates its 25th year in the sphere of professional musical theatre in the Philippines. For the past twenty-five years, blueREP has selected material that is new, fresh and challenging, and the organization is constantly on a search to innovate and make an impact in theater and in the Ateneo. The organization regularly works with theater veterans from Repertory Philippines, Trumpets, Atlantis Productions and other professional theater companies.
