Funder Campaign!


WHO IS CSUN FASA?

FASA was chartered in 1982 and is the oldest active API group on campus. The faculty advisor is Professor Allan Aquino. CSUN FASA is built upon the pillars of C.L.A.S.S! This is the foundation of what CSUN FASA  aims to promote within the club. C for Culture, L for Leadership, A for Academics, S for Social and S for Sports!


WHAT IS PCN?

PCN stands for Pilipino Cultural Night, our annual performance that includes an original script, cultural dances, modern dances, live dayaw and rondalla music and for the first time ever, original music to accompany the storyline. CSUN FASA is officially hosting our 39th Annual Pilipino Cultural Night on April 21st, 2024. Join us in another evening of immersive Philippine culture. 


THE STORYLINE.

This years show is entitled MAHAL, which means love! This story follows Aileen Vega, a recent college graduate who struggles with romantic love, familial love and most of all, self love. As we follow her journey as an aspiring music artist, Aileen finds herself stuck in an episode of "Maalaala Mo Kaya," an old Philippine teleseries where she must watch her own lives version in the show. As she meets a mysterious girl in this realm, Aileen must face the truth. 


YOUR DONATION

Our cast and crew aims to produce the most authentic and culturally accurate portrayal of the Philippine culture and we need your help! 


All monetary contributions will be used for the following

  • Venue: It is tradition to use CSUN's very own Performing Arts Center in the Plaza del Sol. With show day and tech days, this costs us an approximate $15,000 alone. 
  • Costume & Props: Every article of clothing and prop seen on stage is hand created by our very own pug pound and costume committee. 
  • Dayaw & Rondalla: These music groups provide authentic live instrumentals to accompany our cultural dances. It is CSUN FASA tradition to work with these music groups to provide the most authentic sound possible for our show.  
  • Programs: For the day of show, we provide physical programs to provide information and show off every cast & team member, give background on our script and dances, provide ad space to local businesses and much more!
  • Misc.: There are hundreds of aspects that go in and out of this show! So this includes any other additional costs that may occur like filming/picture materials, food and water for the crew, merch and more!
