A new theatrical experience will be coming to Resorts World Singapore (RWS) on 18 May 2018. Backed by 2 accomplished Taiwanese heavyweights – Lang Tsu Yun (郎祖筠) as Director and Kay Huang Yun Ling (黄韵玲) as Music Director comes – Super Mommy (我的妈妈是ENY? 狮城温馨版).
After multiple sold-out runs in Taiwan, the Singapore version will see local performing talents – Jaspers Lai (赖宇涵) as Grandma, Lin You Fa (林尤发) as Grandpa, Chriz Tong (汤薇恩) as Mother and Benjamin Josiah Tan (陈俊铭) as Father on stage performing a story that’s full of comedic and poignant moments.
Together with the original actress Luo Mei Ling (罗美玲) playing the domestic helper Eny and 8 child performers including Estovan Reizo Cheah (谢颖泽) who plays Jeremy, the performers will take you on a reflective life journey that promises to tug at one’s heartstrings amidst the laughter.
Set in a 3 generation household, the production sheds light on modern pertinent societal issues around domestic helpers, work-life balance, the vulnerability of family ties and dementia. Life for young Jeremy with his Mother, Father, and Grandma takes a dramatic turn when Grandpa’s dementia deteriorates.
So, as to get better care for Grandpa, an Indonesian helper – Eny is brought in to help out. From being a stranger to becoming an anchoring member the family can do without, Eny becomes a motherly figure for Jeremy, whilst the adults dealt with issues of juggling work and bringing home to bacon, caring for family, prejudices against domestic helpers and the challenges dementia brings for the family.
Chriz Tong and Lin You Fa are already veterans in the theatre scene in Singapore; the highlight would definitely be on the popular multi-talented comedian and host – Jaspers.
- Takes on the breakthrough role of cross-dressing as Grandma.
- He will be taking on most of the comedic relief.
The light will also be shining on up-and-coming local television heartthrob; Benjamin Josiah as he pairs up with Chriz; playing the role of Father and taking on a major role on stage. Being in stage theatrical productions since young, he wills one to watch too!
The 8 child performers are also not to be taken lightly. They were all handpicked in person by effervescent Hong Kong actress – Nancy Sit (薛家燕) through an audition for Super Mommy and coached by Mother Hong Kong Arts Centre (家燕妈妈艺术中心), an arts center founded by Nancy herself!
