Vince Ferraren for Bench

Vince Ferraren breaks into theater as Oedipus in Oedipus the King by Mel Magno. In this RD Dantes photo he is modeling for Bench.

Hello ABQ Readers!

As Bb. Pilipinas closes in on it’s final list of contestants for the 2014 pageant, I find myself busy as an actress.


I am busy rehearsing as Queen Jocasta in the “Oedipus The King” by Mel Magno. My Oedipus is none other than the gorgeous Fil-Aussie model Vince Ferraren!

Vince Ferraren is best known for his Bench ad campaigns and was a hottest male model feature in Cosmo and Mega magazines.  He is making his theater debut with the presentation of “Oedipus the King,” under Seventh Stage Productions. Its his first-ever stage play and a classical one at that!

You can follow Vince Ferraren’s Facebook here…  and his Twitter here.

Actually, Vince Ferraren has been doing the play for a few months now with a different actress taking on the role of Queen Jocasta. Due to unforeseen circumstances, she could no longer continue so Direk Mel Magno (the famous indie film director) asked if I would be interested in trying out for the role. I jumped at it and now I find myself a Queen once more! Aaahahaha!

You can watch my debut as Queen Jocasta on January 26, 2014 (Sunday) at SM Centerpoint, 10AM. The play is being presented to college and high school students as part of their English Lit requirements but it is also open to the public. Tickets are: P500 (VIP) and P350.

Will post photos from the play. Next showing is up in Baguio on February 6, 2014.  February 5, 2014, Wednesday. 2pm at the Baguio Convention Center. Hope to see you there!

Sorry guys, the Baguio showing got cancelled due to unforeseen circumstances. The next show will be in Bulacan on February 7, 2014. Stand by for details on that!
