This year’s summer festival, which is themed after one of the most flamboyant and highly enjoyable theater productions staged in Australia, Broadway, and the West End, which started this month till June. It promises its regular and first-time partygoers with thrilling events, hot blockbuster movie premieres, exciting sports happenings, enticing promos, as well as family fun, and the biggest theater scene coming this May.
Though, Mandopop Superstar Michael Wong and Maggie Chiang have kicked-off the summer parties via a one-night only concert—Michael’s ‘Crazy Memories’ tour at Newport Performing Arts Theater (NPAT) on April 5—that was just the beginning of its April Thrill.
On April 21, Easter Sunday, treat the kids to a special Esater egg hunt and performance by Wanlu and his puppets right after hearing High Mass at NPAT.
Prince of Acoustic Pop, Nyoy Volante, will perform on April 22 at RWM’s Bar 360. And to complete the April Thrill, RWM’s Newport Cinemas in cooperation with AXN will premier ‘The Amazing Spider-Man 2’ on April 30. An exhibit of the film’s collectibles and memorabilia will be mounted at The Plaza of the Newport Mall.

Get Swoon this June.
Since its Summer Epic Fest is nearing to an end, RWM stretched more fun while the summer sun is not yet gone.
Capping off the summer entertainment spree, US Alt rockers—Vertical Horizon will have a one-night only concert on June 5 at NPAT, featuring their latest album—‘Echoes from the Underground’ as well as some of their hits—‘You’re a God’, ‘Everything You Want’, ‘Best I Ever Had’, and more.
A great way to celebrate Philippine Independence on June 12 is by witnessing the 100 Years of Philippine Sports Awards Night at the NPAT.
Just like Mother’s Day, it’s the turn for fathers to celebrate Father’s Day in June. There will be a special treat as well at The Plaza for all the fathers. And perhaps a better way to celebrate a post-Father’s Day is via Bar 360’s show that will feature the father-and-daughter tandem of Hajji Alejandro and Rachel Alejandro as they sing the best of both past and present Pinoy pop on June 17.
