The Angeles City Council honors theater actress Joreen Moriah Bautista for landing the coveted role of ‘Kim’ in the hit Broadway musical Miss Saigon for its United Kingdom Tour in July.

Angeles City Mayor Ed Pamintuan, according to the city website, says Bautista’s achievement proves Angeleños are world class talents.

She paid a courtesy visit to the city mayor on April 17 at the Angeles City Hall.

Vice Mayor Bryan Nepomuceno then handed over the city council resolution citing Bautista as an Angeleño pride “beating more than 1,000 females who auditioned for the said coveted role.”

Bautista, who hails from Barangay Capaya, is the second Angeleño to play the role after acclaimed actress Lea Salonga.

“This is quite nostalgic since an Angeleña again will be playing Miss Saigon’s lead role. It seems that Angeleña qualities best fit the requisites of the said coveted role,” said Pamintuan.
