A grand live stage version inspired by the hit TV serial, The Little Nyonya, this Peranakan fiesta stars leads Jeanette Aw and Dai Yang Tian from the original cast amongst a host of other MediaCorp artistes! The Musical Play will also feature a stellar cast of guest artistes such as Olivia Ong as well as familiar theatre professionals.
An evening recreating the emotional highlights of the drama serial with a plot set in a Peranakan Ball (Tok Panjang!), with the much-loved and now-successful Yue Niang taking centrestage, helping a downtrodden Nyonya servant girl much like herself (in the past) in a wealthy Peranakan household to find the Baba of her dreams.
Directed by Goh Boon Teck, renowned theatre director, playwright and production designer for nearly two decades, creative director for NDP 2007 & 2008 who also helmed the critically-acclaimed Ti Tou Dao amongst others, The Peranakan Ball promises to be a heartwarming Peranakan extravaganza to remember.
Legendary duo Dick Lee and Michael Chiang reunite once again for Singapore’s Number One musical, the iconic Beauty World.
This much-beloved musical, which has seen multiple stagings since its debut at the Singapore Arts Festival in 1988, traces the adventures of a small-town girl from Batu Pahat who sets out on a quest to find her father in Singapore. With a mysterious jade pendant as her only clue, she winds up in a dubious cabaret, where she learns some heartbreaking truths about love and life.
This revival, which features Michael Chiang’s revised script from 2008, will be directed for the first time by Beauty World co-creator and composer Dick Lee. The production will bring onstage an exciting ensemble of formidable talents from theatre and television.
Top TV star Jeanette Aw provides sensational sizzle as Lulu, the beautiful but vindictive cabaret queen, while Cheryl Tan brings wide-eyed charm to the role of Ivy Chan, our innocent protagonist.
Beauty World has always showcased theatre’s best and brightest young talents, and this 2015 production will be no exception. While the plot remains unchanged, and the comedy is as enjoyable as ever, this new version promises to unveil a darker, more dangerous Beauty World.
Beauty World runs from 13 November 2015 to 12 December 2015 at Victoria Theatre.
