MANILA, Philippines (The Adobo Chronicles, Manila Bureau) – It’s Holy Tuesday in the Roman Catholic calendar and preparations for the Senakulo (passion play) are at fever pitch.
For the first time ever, presidential candidates in the upcoming Philippine elections will be playing major roles in the play. Famous actor Dingdong Dantes will play the role of Jesus, but the casting director needs help in determining which roles each of the candidates will play, so he is asking for the help of Filipino netizens.
Who do you want to play the roles of Judas, Magdalena, Pontio Pilato, Magnanakaw?
The play will be held at the Philippine Arena (which, ironically, is owned by Iglesia Ni Cristo) and will be telecast live on CNN Philippines starting at 12 noon on Good Friday.
