The cast of Eto Na! Musikal nAPO! The APO Hiking Society musical

Globe LIVE! and 9 Works Theatrical are back with Eto na! Musikal nAPO! an original Filipino musical based on the music of the APO Hiking Society, nonetheless.

It isn’t auto-biographical (let’s straighten that out) but it is inspired by the story of how APO started and came about.
