Sam Concepcion joins the cast of N.O.A.H.
Sam Concepcion joins the cast of Trumpets’ major family musical N.O.A.H. (No Ordinary Aquatic Habitat) as the Narrator. He will share the role with theater newcomer Fred Lo beginning Sept. 4 until 27, at Meralco Theater.
Sam is not a stranger to Trumpets. At 9, he took on the demanding role of Edmund in Trumpets’ The Lion, The Witch and The Wardrobe. Sam’s performances were even then highly-acclaimed and no one was surprised when he won the grand prize in ABS-CBN’s Little Big Star. Since then, he has graced kids and teen magazine covers (KZone, Candy), teen TV (MYX, Boystown), teen dance group Gigger Boys, various print and TV endorsements (Bench, Smart My Sandbox), the cast of Disney’s High School Musical On Stage, the soundtrack of Dreamworks’ hit animated movie Kung Fu Panda, among others. He was also awarded hottest Candy Cutie for three consecutive years (2006-2008), Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards’ Pinoy Wannabe Awardee, and more recently United Nations Association of the Philippines (UNAP) Young Achiever Awardee for Entertainment.
But despite all this success in showbiz, Sam’s heart has never left the theater. In 2004, he recorded the voice of Japeth for the puppet version of N.O.A.H., which featured Gary Valenciano and Bituin Escalante. Sam deemed the experience enjoyable but not the same as performing on stage. Now he goes live onstage in the full-scale production of N.O.A.H. directed by Jaime del Mundo.
In N.O.A.H., Trumpets retells the classic story of the Biblical patriarch and his famous ark with wit and humor, heart and compassion, hope and joy, and of course, fun.
