In August, the 70s feel will come to life onstage via the latest musical theater treat—‘Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!’ from Globe Live! and 9 Works Theatrical as they bring a feel-good, nostalgic and romantic comedy production inspired from the hit songs of Apolinario Mabini Hiking Society, later popularly known as APO Hiking Society, or simply APO.

The musical is about friendships and love. It will spotlight an interesting mix of seven male leads—Mark Bautista, JoBim Javier, Alfritz Blanch, Jep Go, Jef Flores, Jon Abella and Vyen Villanueva.

The audience will get to enjoy the classic songs of APO, like ‘Awit ng Barkada’ (covered by Itchyworms, now covered by Noel Cabangon), ‘Batang-Bata Ka Pa’ (covered by Sugarfree, now covered by Noel Cabangon), ‘Blue Jeans’ (covered by Wise Guys, then Eraserheads, and then by Rocksteddy), ‘Panalangin’ (covered by Moonstar88, then by Richard Poon, now covered by Noel Cabangon) and ‘Saan Na Nga Ba’ng Barkada’ (covered by Sponge Cola) are just five of the 26 songs included.
