MANILA, Philippines – The emotional love story of Popoy and Basha is set to hit the theater stage soon as the Philippine Educational Theater Association (PETA) announced the cast members and show dates for the highly-anticipated theater adaptation of the Filipino classic hugot movie One More Chance. 

On Sunday, January 28, PETA unveiled the cast lineup. Sam Concepcion and CJ Navato will alternately play the role of Popoy while Anna Luna and Nicole Omillo will be alternating in the character of Basha. 

John Lloyd Cruz and Bea Alonzo played the role of Popoy and Basha, respectively, in the 2007 movie.
