I happened to be at PETA Theater Center when this storybook theater project happened. I was especially touched by the storytelling session by kids themselves and by the performance of Kaibigan Foundation Cultural Group of Superwoman si Inay. Indeed, this is a project for the young and young at heart.

Among the group storytellers and performers were  Anino Shadowplay Collective, Teatrong Mulat ng Pilipinas, Sipat Lawin Ensemble, Artistang Artlets (UST), Kaibigan Ermita Outreach Foundation Inc., Anak ng Bayan (San Juan), KUTING (Kuwentista ng mga Tsikiting), Francis Magalona Foundation and PETA-MTTL Alumni.
