SAN JUAN City, Oct. 21, 2013—As a response to the call for New Evangelization, a parish youth ministry is initiating a street theater intended to bring catechism to the streets.
Organized by ‘Kadang Dominiko’ of Santuario del Sto. Cristo, the Marionette Theater will be launched on October 26, Saturday, along J.P. Rizal Street, Brgy. Onse in San Juan City.
Marlon Antolin of Kadang said the puppet theater is another project of the group which was conceived for the celebration of the Year of Faith aimed to bring catechism to the streets by retelling of well-known parables from the Bible and other inspiring stories through the use of puppets.
“For its first venture, the youth will perform a short play titled ‘Ang Kuwento ni Jose at and Kanyang Dalawang Anak’ inspired by the parable of the Prodigal Son,” Antolin shared.
The street theater will also feature a live acoustic performance of inspirational songs to be performed by the young people of the parish.
After the first venture, the next stop of the group will be in V. Angeles Street, Brgy. Kabayanan.
Kadang intends to have the series of performances at least twice a month. (Jandel Posion)
