It is with deep sadness that we inform the Ateneo community of the passing
of Mr Mariano R Singson Jr.
Mr Yani Singson returned to our Creator on Sunday , 23 April 2017.
His 36 years of service to the Ateneo, was marked by dedicated service to
the school as alumnus, teacher and school administrator. But what stands
out most to countless Ateneo de Manila Grade School Alumni is his role as
director of the oldest among the childrens' theatre groups in the
Philippines, the Ateneo Childrens' Theatre or ACT.
His years as director of the ACT were spent contributing to the
Filipinization of the theatre arts in the Ateneo making the ACT truly a
theatre of Filipinos, by Filipinos and for Filipino Children. His passion
for theatre summarized into two words "Change and Creativity ", encouraged
his students to not just act but to participate in the other aspects of
theatre production. He also encouraged students at a young age to not
just settle with already written material but to also create original
material . His influence spans many generations of Ateneans , some of whom
are now prominent names in their own fields. Today the Ateneo Grade School
Auditorium where numerous play productions formed generations of Ateneans,
is aptly named after Mr Singson.
*His wake will be held at Arlington Memorial Chapel in Araneta Avenue until
12:00 noon of Thursday , April 27, 2017. Daily Masses at Arlington will be
held at 7:00 pm.*
*He will then be transferred to the Ateneo Grade School Singson Hall and
will be waked until 12:00 midnight of Friday, April 28, 2017.*
Kindly keep Mr Yani Singson in your prayers.
