And as a fanatic of this production, I came to watch the casts when they had their tour here in Cebu last July 03, 2016. I had the chance to meet and had a little talk with the sang'gres (Glaiza, Sanya, Gabbi and Kylie). They had been very accommodating and did their best to wow the Cebuano crowd. Glaiza even sang the cebuano hit song, "hasula" that made everyone gone crazy. It amazed them to see the casts especially the sang'gres learning to speak a little Cebuano as they greet the people "maayong gabii"
They also had a little intermission number of dancing the trumpet song and had fun with the Cebuanos in Talisay, Cebu.
