The Philippines’ original von Trapp children

The Sound of Music (Manila)

Time and again, THE SOUND OF MUSIC brings back old memories and opens a string of nostalgia to this day. This video, posted by Ryan Reyes Rosario, takes us back to memory lane and gives us our first glimpse on the beginnings of some of our best and iconic personalities in the Philippines.

Here, you will see one little lady who will soon be Kim in the very first run of Miss Saigon in London (Lea Salonga), and her original alternate for the same role (Monique Wilson). In this clip, you will also see Raymond Lauchengco who will soon be a BAGETS alumus and a teenage singing hearthrob in the 80s.

Also we will see how Ms. Menchu Lauchengco looked like when she was 17. Now, Ms. Lauchengco-Yulo is know as The First Lady of Philippine Theater.

But it is most refreshing to see someone we don’t normally see in the Philippine Theater scene. Seeing our newly-elected Senator Risa Hontiveros playing Louisa Vontrapp is a surprise!

Watch!
