Erik Santos makes his professional acting debut on stage in Atlantis Production’s version of the hit Broadway musical The Little Mermaid, where he will play the role of Prince Eric opposite Rachelle Ann Go as the mermaid-turned-human Ariel. “Nag-re-rehearse na kami ngayon. I’m very excited kasi this is my first time to do theater so kumbaga ibang experience naman for me,” he said.
The 29-year-old crooner admitted he feels very privileged to be offered the role and did not have to go through any more grueling auditions. “Siguro I’m lucky enough na hindi po ako nag-audition for the role kasi Direk Bobby Garcia who’s our director in The Little Mermaid told me about two years ago pa na ako na yung role na Prince Eric. Si Direk Bobby naman, close kami niyan, kumbaga dinerect na niya yung mga past concerts ko. I’m really enjoying now. Ibang klaseng experience pala yung teatro,” he admitted to Push.com.ph.
