No Humbugs Here: Globe LIVE & 9Works Theatricals Bring Back Menken & Ahrenn’s A Christmas Carol

November 16, 2017 | 12:58 PM

According to Joe Caliro, Globe Head for Creative Marketing and Multimedia Services, and the musical’s executive producer, “A Christmas Carol’s second run is part of our effort to encourage our customers in creating new traditions with the whole family. We chose to stage A Christmas Carol again because it resonates with the colorful holiday celebrations here in the Philippines. It also teaches us the valuable lesson of giving, which is what the season is all about. With the successful it had last year, we wanted to offer it once again to eventually make it a Filipino Christmas tradition that everyone can enjoy.”  

 

Making this year’s production extra special is Globe LIVE’s support for the HERO Foundation through the “Wall of Miracles.” To be able to support more military orphans and send them to school, all of A Christmas Carol’s show will have the “Wall of Miracles” display that guests will be invited to decorate with Christmas ornaments that will be sold at the venue. All the proceeds from the sale of the ornaments alongside an additional donation from Globe LIVE will be turned over to the HERO Foundation.

 

A non-stock, non-profit organization, HERO stands for Help, Educate and Rear Orphans. It has been providing educational stipends to military orphans. The financial support helps keep orphans in school as it covers much needed requirements such as school supplies, transportation, meals, and even a portion of their tuition fee. 

Globe LIVE is the original live productions arm of the telco company that aims to offer customers more entertainment experiences that are out-of-the-box, online, and offline. Globe LIVE continues to be a purveyor of world-class entertainment, and with its partnership with 9Works Theatrical, is once again providing a venue for local theater to be appreciated by Filipinos.

 

The Globe LIVE and 9Works Theatricals staging of Menken & Ahren’s A Christmas Carol will run from December 7 to 10, December 14 to 17, and December 21, 22, 25 to 27 at the Globe ICONIC Theater, Bonifacio Global City.
