Rak of Aegis Season 6: What's New in Barangay Venizia?

Rak is back mga ka-baranggay!!!

Oh yes! The very successful all-Filipino musical, Rak of Aegis, is going back onstage for their sixth re-run. If you have not seen at least one show from the past five seasons, you should know that you're missing the fun! They wouldn't reach this far and people wouldn't be asking for more if it's just nothing, right? 

Just like the lead character in the musical, Aileen, there are so many talented Filipinos that are aspiring to pursue their dreams and be successful in the entertainment world. We have so much reality shows on TV and everyday, we discover great talents that are truly world-class. 

As they prepare for yet another much-anticipated re-run this year, the people behind Rak has thought of a brilliant idea. Why not make the story of Aileen a reality? Months ago, PETA has launched an online reality search for new talents who will be joining this year's run of the musical. Dubbed as Hu Got Talent: The Search for the Next Rakstar, hundreds of hopefuls submitted their video entries and the lucky Top 20 underwent intensive workshop where they experienced how it is to be part of "Rak".

The list was further trimmed down and the Lucky 9 who will be joining the cast were finally introduced during the press launch held last May 22 in PETA Theater Center.
