More good news!

March 18, 2018

Friends, family, and supporters,


We’re excited to announce that we’ve met 57% of our $5,000 goal! Thank you so much for your contribution. This show is as much yours as it is ours! But let’s keep going! We have two weeks left to reach our goal. Please share our campaign with your friends and family today! We got this!


Thank you again,


The Sampaguita Cast


An exciting announcement!

March 11, 2018

Friends, family, and supporters


Our first week is done and we’ve already raised $2,001--40% of our goal! Thank you so much for your support! Last Sunday, on March 4th, we launched our campaign and had our first “Super Sunday” with our 200-person cast. Super Sundays are a weekly rehearsal of our show. It’s the time when our cast meets together to blend everything we’ve been working on in our separate aspects.


Sunday was our first glimpse of how our show will be like. Our actors read the first act, our choir sang our national anthems, and our dancers performed their first eight-counts. There’s a long journey ahead, but it’s only up from here!


Let’s keep the momentum up! We have three weeks left to reach our $5,000 goal. Please share our page and encourage your friends, family, and colleagues to contribute to the campaign and/or attend our show this May 4th and 5th at the Santa Clara Convention Center.


With Love,

The Sampaguita Cast, Akbayan SJSU

Choose a giving level


The Barrio Suite

The Barrio suite embodies the simple life of country folk through dance. Your $25 contribution will celebrate the gathering of our 200+ student cast and the venue costs for our weekly practices and theater production. Donors at this level will receive a special thanks in the program.


The Maria Clara Suite

In this suite, our strong female characters wear beautiful, intricate dresses while the males wear traditional embroidered barongs. This $50 contribution will be graciously flaunted through our costumes that we will be wearing throughout the production as well as future PCNs. Donors at this level will receive a limited edition character stickers.


The Tribal Suite

The Tribal suite reflects the different indigenous people, also referred to as “lumad”, that represent the many tribes scattered throughout the Philippines who have resisted colonization. Their stories depict a variety of different rituals: worship, courtship, thanksgiving, and so much more. This $100 contribution will help tell the story of this production with props and lights that will set the mood for everyone in the production. Donors at this level will receive an official poster for the production.


The Southern Islands Suite

The Southern Islands suite emulates the dances of the Mindanao island in the Southern Philippines. Their graceful and fluid movements are similar to that of the ocean, where most of the dances are inspired by. This $250 contribution will be paraded through the performers of this production and the backstage help, for this will help ease the costs of their fees. Donors at this level will receive a signed program from the cast of the production.


The Mountain Suite

The Mountain suite represents the warriors in the mountain regions. The dances in this suite demonstrate the fierceness of these people and their many lifestyle rituals that include ones for war, courtship, and worship. This $500 contribution will bring about more during this production with shirts, pins, and stickers to provide for audience members. Donors at this level will receive a DVD of the production.


The Sampaguita

Your $1000 contribution will benefit all aspects of our PCN. Donors at this level will receive an official T-Shirt.
