by - February 15, 2016

TNT- Adamson, the oldest student based theater in Adamson University celebrates its 30th years last February 6, 2016 at the ST Quadrangle. The event was attended by hundreds of Adamsonian Tinik ng Teatro (TNT) alumni and was hosted by the Tinik ng Teatro Alumni Association. 

TNT- Adamson started in 1986. According to TNT Alumni Association president Teri Onor a.k.a Dexter Dominguez, “This is a milestone for all of us; three decades of fruitful and meaningful journey for our beloved organization is no ordinary feat!” Celebrity and Bataan Board Member Teri Onor assumed the TNT alumni presidency post in January 1, 2016 after their 2-term president, Mark Anthony Legaspi succumbed to diabetes complications in December before the New Year.

“I am personally excited on the synergy that we will work on with Adamson University management, specifically the Cultural Affairs Office and the Adamson Grand Alumni Association. We have a pipeline of projects that we will pursue in the coming months aim to nurture and advance the performing arts in Adamson,” added by Onor.

TNT Alumni Association was formed in 2009 in time for the 2011 silver anniversary of the group. Since then the association has been helping the school-based members financially for their production and marketing of their show. “This year our assistance to TNT school-based and to our alumni will now include livelihood and medical assistance and we are also launching very soon our scholarship grant to deserving school-based or TNT alumni dependents,” said Onor.

The anniversary night paid tribute to the 1986 founding members of TNT and also bestowed a posthumous recognition to Mark Anthony Legaspi for his contribution and dedication in TNT; the award was received by his brother John Legaspi.

The event also announced TNT’s 2016 recipients of the Eduardo Alcalde Achievement Awards; Maria Vicenta Medina, United Nations (UN) volunteer for war-torn countries and  Adel Arguel, professional stage actress, and senior artist of The Art Production.

Pasig Congressman Roman Romulo provided the keynote speech and GMA 7 artist Boobsie Wonderland gave a surprise performance for the TNT alumni crowd. 

The TNT anniversary night was preceded by a weeklong exhibit held at the Adamson Cardinal Santos Walkway from February 1 to February 5, 2016.  The exhibit showcased various memorabilia and rare photo collections of the different productions and projects of TNT done in the last 30 years.

The exhibit was formally opened by OIA- Director Eva Dulay, TNT Alumni President Teri Onor and TNT alumna and Showtime Kalokalike 2013 Grand Winner Jenny Catuyong.
