Tinik ng Teatro (TNT) started life on February 3, 1986, a period of heightened socio-political upheaval and the cry for change and reform in the Philippines was at its peak; initially, Adamson University Renaissance Universal Playhouse (AURUP). TNT stage plays were with heavy undertone on change and challenging the current norms of the society. Some of its early works include “Juan Tamban”, “Halimaw sa Pulo”, “Pagtitiis ni Mang Serapio”, “Kalayaan” and “Batang Pro”.
Some of its notable alumni includes the late Edward Alcalde (one of the founders of TNT, seasoned stage director, and team building facilitator), Dexter Dominguez a.k.a. Teri Onor (movie & TV impersonator), Angelito Pangilinan (Flamenco Master), Mark Anthony Legaspi (stage director, movie and TV art director), and a lot more…
