Celebrating 50 years, PCN at SFSU has decided to push the boundaries of what a PCN is into what it can be by producing a film! Manalo: The Movie Musical (2022) is the first original feature-length movie musical for a PCN across the entire nation.

Manalo is an original musical that follows Nicholas Manalo, an aspiring artist who runs a small performing arts group, One Beat, in hopes of one day finding success in the theatre industry. After two years of failing to find success in his team, this puts Nicholas in a rough financial position. Back home, tension arises as Nicholas and his parents begin to clash about what it means to be an adult and to have a stable career post-college graduation. An opportunity arises for Nicholas and One Beat to enter a competition that would offer them the big break they have all been waiting for. With money and family relations on the line, will Nicholas be able to win it all?

A Pilipinx American Collegiate Endeavors (PACE) and Inner Sanctum 50 production, in collaboration with Chi Rho Omicron, Kariktan Dance Company, Barangay Dance Company, Parangal, Likha Pilipino Folk Ensemble, and the American Center of Philippine Arts.
