Performed within the confines of a little theatre, the cabaret act was at its best. The stage was constructed just a little above floor level and greeted the audience seated within a nightclub surrounding.
The players consisted of a very energetic cast of enthusiastic La Salle students who are currently doing their graduate degree programme. The revue was what I've always dreamed of when I started this blog i.e. an appreciation of Singapore's golden age of music.
Cast and crew worked hard to give you a treat like no other! Even though all 3 shows are sold out, you can still try your luck at the door! There will be food and alcohol! Come and join us as we bring back the 60s!
Fun Fact Of The Day from Musical's FB:
"For only 2 years (1964 - 1965), Andy Lim fronted Singapore guitar group and recording artistes, The Silver Strings." We are excited to have him attend the musical!
CONGRATULATIONS SINGAPORE 60s!
Thank You for all your support!
Silver Strings leader Audie Ng, present lead guitarist Rickie Chng, rhythm guitarist for a coming short film Lawrence Lim and I had a tremendously exciting afternoon watching the musical.
"Can I come again this evening?" I asked.
"Sorry Andy," came the answer. "Not even standing room!"
"These singers and musicians were creating an extraordinary local pop industry. Yet today, many are not celebrated as the legends and trailblazers that they truly are. May their legacy live on, not only for this current generation but for many more to come (Caleb Goh, Revue Director.)"
These boys and girls sang: You're The Boy, My Boy Lollipop, Lover's Concerto, The Boy Next Door, Bengawan Solo, Aaja Aaja, Boom Boom, Mr Twister and many more.

My dream that this blog could influence some change and let our youth in on the 60s. Thank you Caleb.
