Here’s a chance for habitual absentees to make up! (Especially those of you who have already incurred more than 3 absences-that is already 45 points off your class participation.)

Watch Golden Child at the Cultural Center of the Philippines. Golden Child is presented by CCP and Tanghalang Pilipino and runs at the Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino (CCP Little Theater) from August 8 to 31 with 8:00 P.M. performances on Fridays and Saturdays and 3:00 P.M. matinees on Saturdays and Sundays.

Tickets are at P600 at Ticketnet and Ticketworld. Tickets are at P250 if you buy through your class representative.

I will watch the Filipino presentation on August 29, Friday at 8PM.

You may opt to watch the English presentation on August 30, Saturday at 8PM.

I am giving away extra credit of 20 points for class participation if you are going to see this one.

There are only 3 requirements before you earn the contingency credits:
1. Inform me of the date when you are watching it (that means you are responsible in taking care of securing your own ticket booking.)
2. Watch it with your parents/guardians (This saves me the hassle of getting a parental consent. You may also consider this an opportunity to bond with them during this busy time of the year.)
3. Show me any proof that you saw it, otherwise, be prepared to answer my Q&A regarding the play.
Your parents might want to read a review of the play before taking you. I post the link below so you can access the review and other information re the play:

Apologies if I was not able to post instructions regarding how you can earn extra credit. I thought that I have to personally watch one of the plays first before I ask you to go. This will also perhaps allow me to touch base with their respective marketing persons so that we may all enjoy big discounts on tickets.

Fortunately, I saw David Henry Hwang’s Golden Child at the CCP Tanghalang Aurelio Tolentino and I think this is the one you should watch. I shall announce to the class next meeting the mechanics for earning credits by watching this play. Thank you.
