Singapore Musical Theatre Newsletter December 2008


Recently I just received some music news from Kenneth (a local music composer and musical theater lover) who is associated with Music Theatre Limited Company. The Music Theatre Limited Company promotes and showcases locally-written musicals by Singaporeans and any inspiring musical writers in Singapore. The poster above features a upcoming future event organised by the company. Below is the newsletter for Dec 2008 (Source: Kenneth Lyen):

Hi,
Christmas is just round the corner, and I hope that it will lift our
spirits. This year has been a most eventful one, ranging from the
highs of China's Olympics, to the lows of economic recession and
terrorist attacks in Mumbai. Musical theatre (and other arts) has been
adversely affected, says the Straits Times. So I am urging all of you
to please help support us by attending the events that we are
organizing.


A) SONGWRITERS SHOWCASE AND TALENT SHOW
Time: Friday 5 Dec 2008 7-9 pm
Place: Bukit Timah Community Club (Toh Yi Drive, Jalan Jurong Kechil).
http://song-song-song-sg.blogspot.com/2008/11/songwriter-showcase-bukittimahcc.html

Another inspiring session where some of the most talented songwriters
share their craft and creed.
Be at the interesting, well-facilitated enclave of Bukit Timah, where
the best music talents around the Community Centre will display their
talents!
