My love for the arts and my dream of someday, “I could be in a musical play or theater act” brought me to a youtube video that showcases a new wave of musical show. I actually saw this from a post shared by CashCashPinoy over Facebook on Jan. 3, 2012. After watching the YouTube trailer, I was looking forward to seeing more of them so I subscribed to their channel.
The castings have started around the last quarter of 2011, and geesh, I always miss out chances (btw, how do you get info about auditions? I don’t think you really need to be a pro, just to even get an “extra” role!), but anyway, there have been quite a few reviews yet, and most that I’ve read are similar, still, I am interested to see this ’12 episode web series’ which shall be launched on March 2012 (Prison Dancer webpage). By merely scanning through their website, I believe this had been shown abroad in 2010 and is now being brought in the Philippines. I’m pretty sure a lot of Filipinos would like this, plus if you enjoyed videos by Michael Bustos, then I’m certain that you’ll await these web series as he is a part of the cast!
Here’s one originally-made song, apart from the trailer, which made me scout for its lyrics. It’s really nice (and its simplicity made me sigh “sayang, should have gotten the chance to audition as Cherish…hihihi!)
Prison Dancer is an original interactive musical web series inspired by the viral Youtube phenomenon, the “Dancing Inmates of Cebu.” Featuring a cast of Youtube stars and some of the most exciting Filipino musical talent emerging in North America, Prison Dancer is “Glee meets Miss Saigon” wrapped in a “choose your own”adventure. Filled with catchy pop tunes, star-crossed lovers, and engaging interactive elements, Prison Dancer brings together the best of Broadway and Youtube entertainment and takes transmedia storytelling to the next level.
