Laugh, cry and get inspired all over again as the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) brings back the wonderful tandem of Pepito and Pepe in Batang Rizal on stage for a limited engagement only.

A student named Pepito from Rizal Elementary School is faced with a problem—he must find a way to replace the monument of national hero Dr. Jose Rizal, which broke accidentally.


Through the help of the magical book, Pepito gets transported back in time to meet the young Pepe [Rizal] himself in his hometown Calamba, Laguna. Pepito gets an intimate look into the life of our national hero during the Spanish era while Pepe gets a glimpse of modern-day Manila.

The two boys meet several important people and surpass challenges in ways that only kids can do.

The restaging of Batang Rizal will take place at the Cinema 5 of SM Centerpoint, Sta. Mesa, Manila, on December 1 (3:00 pm). Tickets are at PhP200 each.
