Preview: Detention Katong by Dream Academy
Dream Academy presents an all new original musical comedy written and directed by Selena Tan!
Set in the fictitious Geylang Girls Secondary School, this new musical is all about those angsty, difficult teenage years. From pimples to ponytails, boys to breaking the rules, this is one story that’ll appeal to both the young and young at heart.
Detention Katong stars theatre stalwarts Suhaimi Yusoff, Neo Swee Lin, Darius Tan, Serene Chen and Sebastian Tan, as well as Valerie Choo in the starring role of Amanda Chin. Playing other students will be some familiar faces too, namely indie musician Inch Chua, YouTube star Munah Bagharib and the only guy student Terence Tay who will be looking to win the girls over!
Detention Katong will also feature new music and songs composed and arranged by Benjamin Kheng (The Sam Willows), Dave Tan (Electrico), Elaine Chan, Sarah Cheng De Winne, Roy Tan (of Leos and Virgos) and DJ Aldrin, with lyrics by Selena Tan.
It’s always exciting when original productions make their way to the stage, with with such a star-studded production team, we can’t wait to see what Selena Tan has managed to pull off this time!
