Nyoy Volante Joins Hairspray Manila

Nyoy Volante

Nyoy Volante

Multi Awarded Singer/Songwriter Nyoy Volante returns to his theatre roots when he plays Seaweed J. Stubbs in Atlantis Productions’ highly anticipated staging of the Tony Award Winning Musical HAIRSPRAY which opens on November 14, 2008 at the Star Theatre, CCP Complex.

Nyoy recently released his fifth album, entitled Heartstrings with the carrier single BECAUSE. And although he has focused on his recording career for the last five years, Nyoy is thrilled to be returning to the legitimate stage in a show he truly loves.

Nyoy says, “When the film version of HAIRSPRAY came out, I was really impressed with the music and how unique the characters were. Naturally, when I found out Atlantis was doing a Manila Production, I wanted to be a part of it.” Nyoy’s last stage musical was five years ago in Atlantis’ DREAMGIRLS, where he alternated with Jett Pangan as James Thunder Early.

Although his true passion is writing songs that come from straight from his heart, he has great respect for theatre artists and prides himself in having started out as a theatre actor. He says, “I hope everyone agrees with me when I say that the theatre arts’ level of discipline is considered one of the highest among all the performing arts. And the training (from voice, to movement, to acting) is really, really hard. It’s always a challenge and a test of stamina to do a show. And the fulfillment at the end of the day is tremendous.”

HAIRSPRAY is directed by Bobby Garcia, Choreography by Cecille Martinez, Production Design by Gino Gonzales, Lighting Design by Shoko Matsumoto, Musical Direction by Archie Castillo with FILharmoniKA.
