PHILIPPINES HISTORAMA is a cultural show consisting of short plays, songs and dances that depict significant periods of Philippine history.  The music of HISTORAMA consists mostly of patriotic and revolutionary hymns contemporaneous with key historical events, evoking the Filipino people’s epic struggles against colonial misrule. All the numbers are performed by seasoned actors, dancers, singers and cultural performers supported by over 50 local dancers and stage volunteers from Oregon. 

Local dancers will include some of our very own FAFC children.

This grand production culminates the observance of the Filipino American History Month in October.
