MartinezINSPIRED from the hit American TV series, “Glee”, the musical group Kilos Kabataan staged a musical play titled “Klik” at the Philippine Amusement Gaming Corporation Grand Theatre in Parañaque City last October 16.

The event took its musical references from pop music to convey each of the character’s emotions. They performed Cindy Lauper’s “Girls Just Wanna Have Fun,” Miley Cyrus’ “The Climb” and Diana Ross’ “I’m Coming Out,” among others.

The musical aims to demonstrate the dichotomy of the girl’s experiences as they either live a life of morality or otherwise. Some of the girls wounded up as a teenage mom, drug dependent and victim of sex scandals. On the other hand, some became a successful nurse, teacher and even lawyer, among others.

The musical emphasized the virtue of chastity, love, altruism and nationalism. The whimsical play of lights, the optimistic mood and the predictable happy ending contributes to the youth-centered theme, giving it a light and jovial mood.

The play successfully conveyed the appeal that “Glee” had in terms of lighting and dance routines. However, there are still lots of room for improvement such as the actresses’ voice and projection, as most of them do not leave a lasting impression.

The proceeds of the play will be given to the Lightomorrow Foundation, a non-government organization dedicated in building homes to the less fortunate. John Ernest F. Jose
