PHILIPPINES HISTORAMA is a cultural show consisting of short plays,

songs and dances that depict significant periods of Philippine history.

HISTORAMA is highly praised for its contribution to cultural awareness.

Co-written by historian Atty. Bernie Julve and community leader Carmelita

Salonga Tapia, with input and advice from the Philippine Consulate General

in Vancouver, it was first presented to the public on June 9, 2012 at the

Queen Elizabeth Theatre in Vancouver as part of a series of events

commemorating the 114th anniversary of Philippine Independence from

Spanish rule. The Oregon presentation is sponsored by Jaime Lim and

Dory Osilla Lim/PACCO in collaboration with the Council of Filipino American

Associations of Oregon and Southwest Washington (CFAA). The grand production

in Salem culminates the observance of the Filipino American History Month in October.

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.
