Behind the stage curtains: The people with a heart of gold
The next edition of our signature fund-raising musical event will be on stage in late February! Featuring familiar faces for our cast and production team, the whole new story will be double the fun with two showtimes!
We were blessed with overwhelming support for the second edition of the musical – An Undefeated Mind, and this year, two volunteer groups has approached us to be the organizers to bring another beautiful show to the public.
LIVING WITH LUCY: A JOURNEY WITH DEMENTIA
Lucy, a newly diagnosed senior with dementia, is facing a dilemma. Her family intends to move overseas, as her son-in-law has found a new job in Shanghai. But Lucy refuses to move, as she is nervous about losing what little there is left, especially her familiar home, caring neighbors and loving friends.
Grappling with a difficult decision to relocate, Lucy and her family are faced with real challenges. To live with Lucy or to leave her behind?

THE ROADSHOW @ PARAGON
Were you there with us at the Paragon Orchard on 29 January?
The cast and musical committee featured a special Lunar New Year Roadshow on the Sunday afternoon, which attracted crowds of shoppers at the atrium!
We were serenaded by the angelic voice of Fleur, who sang ‘Somewhere only we know’.
The duet by Richard Eu and Shirlene Tang definitely stole the limelight as they sang their rendition of ‘Unforgettable’.
We heard a little sing along from the crowd when the melodic tune of ‘一人一半 ‘began, performed by Richard and Jason.
The highlight of the day was the amazing choir performance, where they interacted with the audience to sing along to the theme song ‘Put a little love’, led by our talented Music Director – Amni Musfirah.
See you on 24 and 25 February!
