About

Set in Singapore in the mid-sixties, Beauty World is a musical melodrama about the adventures of a small town girl in the big city. A mysterious jade pendant brings an innocent young girl to a colourful cabaret in Singapore, where she hopes to locate her long-lost father. Along the way, she meets up with her dotty pen-friend, crosses the path of a vindictive cabaret singer, and learns some heartbreaking truths about love and life (not necessarily in that order). Set to an original score, the comedy is an affectionate tribute to the Chinese soap operas that the playwright and composer grew up with in the sixties, both at the cinema and on TV.

The all-time favourite Singaporean musical is back to celebrate its 10th anniversary. Beauty World’s return in 1998 sees a cast comprising television favourites on stage at the Victoria Theatre, complete with the most memorable music and dynamic dance numbers. It will be a feast of colour, music, and good fun.
