Musikal nAPO has been one rollercoaster of a ride for me. Thanks so much to @9wtonline for letting me be part of my first Filipino musical and for trusting me with a role in your first original musical! You’ve helped me connect more with my Filipino roots and gain more confidence in my Filipino-speaking skills. I’ve enjoyed spending half of my summer with my new family. Can’t wait to perform again with you guys! This is Benjie, signing off. ❤️

Kala ko napost ko dati. Nasa draft pala.. Eto na! Musikal nAPO!
Ang ganda, ang saya! Congratulations to our friends, amazing director @robbieguevara 👏🏻👏🏻👏🏻 cast @peachykins531 @alfritz10 @neomi_tg @sasaki_marika @giangloria #etonamusicalnapo#apohikingsociety#opm#aponight
Thank you tita @ibianksy and tita @charievee for inviting us ❤️
It was an awesome show! I enjoyed the whole show but one part was particularly close to my heart as I can somehow relate to it. Ray’s Dad singing “Pag-Ibig” made it even more heart-wrenching. It’s not really a political play but i love that it at least has an attempt to remind us of how the Marcos family’s greed resulted to a dictatorship that badly affected our country and hurt the families who lost their love ones due to violence (a msg to the morons supporting Bongbong Marcos). Thank you #apohikingsociety for the music and for the social awareness. I wish #etonamusikalnapo will have an extension/re-run so I can rewatch it with my Mom😊
That was a fun show!
I know Eto Na: Musikal nAPO only has a couple dates left, but if you're a bon afide, card-carrying Tito/Tita of Manila like me-- do yourself a favor and catch this show.
It has APO hits throughout, plenty of 70s references, a good story, period-perfect costumes, and likeable characters.
1. Fire up your APO Spotify playlist on your way to get in the spirit of things even before you get to the venue!
2. If you're lucky, you might even run into the dudes themselves-- we managed to run into Mr. Jim Paredes himself at the theater lobby!
3. The amazing cast might just come hang out after the show for photo opps as well!
4. Use same Spotify playlist and jam out to more APO on your way home.
What an honor working with these legends! I always get starstruck every time I see any of them during our rehearsals. After doing 20 shows, it hasn't changed. Their presence still gives me butterflies in a way that makes me feel super duper proud to be part of something so wonderful. I've always loved their music, so inspiring, powerful, and timeless. They are the first ones that come into my mind whenever I hear the word "OPM". So much love for the APO Hiking Society!!! Thank you for your music! And thank you for the amazing support since Day 1. Thank you thank you thank you so much po for everything!!! We love you!!! Mabuhay ang OPM! ❤️🙏🏼 P.S. Still can't accept the fact that we're on our closing weekend already. 😭 #sepanx#ApoHikingSociety#9WTMusikalnAPO#GlobeLiveMusikalnAPO
#Apo , will forever be brilliant songwriters for my, from my, generation.
Salamat sa mga awitin. “Minsan kahit na pilitin mo… ang damdamin
Di siya susunod, at di maglalambing
Minsan di mo na mapigil mapansin
Na talagang wala nang naiiwan na pagmamahal” [Me: minsan mahirap din ipilit sa isang kwento ang ilang dekadang mga awitin. Subukan nalang muli.] #etonamusicalnapo#apohikingsociety

Nothing like nostalgia to make you feel warm and fuzzy all over. The musical brought in a flood of memories, of listening and singing to APO songs in our family van, on countless trips to and from Baguio. Gary’s flashbacks were of schooldays growing up with the barkada from elementary all the way to college days. ❤️ Laughed, cried, laughed and cried, all through the night.🙈👏🏼 #etonamusikalnapo#apohikingsociety
What a delightful evening celebrating Jim’s birthday with his barkada - the original #ApoHikingSociety members and their partners! Thank you, Jim and Lydia, for the sumptuous food, the opportunity to bear witness that music bonded and still bonds you after all these years, and of course, all the “history lessons” and stories!!! Advanced happy birthday, Jim!!! 🤗
ETO NA! Musikal nAPO! is a musical comedy that promises its audiences wholesome entertainment with twitches of rom-com and nostalgia, using the music of one of the country's premiere singing groups, the APO HIKING SOCIETY.
Set in 1975, it centers on seven friends who join a song-writing and singing contest for college students. Composing the perfect song and assigning who best to write and arrange it proves a challenge to the barkada, aside from the individual problems some members have with their girlfriends, love interests, parents and studies, and the current political turmoil of Martial Law.
APO Hiking songs always leave a smirk on my face! It was such a good show, VP Leni and Jim Paredes were there too!! New LSS for a while now! OPM na lang laman ng playlists ko. Haha. #etonamusikalnapo#apohikingsociety
the music of the #APOHikingSociety has been a part of my life since childhood. what makes their brand of music so timeless is that their songs speak to you in the simplest of manners, from melody to the choice of instruments, and of course, their themes.
#EtoNaMusikalnAPO brought us back to those times when things werent so complicated, when love and friendship were the most important things in the world.
hats off to everyone behind this production, and to the trio behind it all - jim, danny, buboy - for getting the message across, "batang-bata ka pa, at marami ka pang kailangan malaman at intindihin sa mundo..." 👏
What a fun show this was! I grew up listening to APO songs. It always brings back memories of simpler times, of friends, of growing up and falling in love for the first time. It was a joy to see their songs on stage performed by such talented Pinoys. Happy to see local theatre thriving. And what a treat to see @jimparedes. He should be declared a national treasure! 🇵🇭 #apohikingsociety#pinoy#theatrefan
Get those blue jeans ready! Eto naaaa... Eto naaa... Eto naaaaa.... HAAAH!
What a fun night — full of laughs, a few tears — with nostalgia filling the air and the songs just beckoning you to sing along to Apo Hiking Society’s hits 🎶
Bravo to this talented cast and crew that made my (and probably everyone else’s!) Friday night 👏🏼
What a night! What a show! 'Eto Na! Musikal nAPO!' exceeded expectations. So glad theater is alive here in Manila and shout-out to Globe for bringing it closer to the Filipinos. Get your tickets now for an ultimate throwback experience and sing along to the timeless music of the APO Hiking Society. 🎶👏💕 #GlobeLiveMusikalnAPO#9WTMusikalnAPO#APOHikingSociety#OPM
