Forever Young

Hold on to your wigs and dentures as Sing’theatre brings back the hilarious sold-out jukebox musical Forever Young!

Written by Swiss playwright Erik Gedeon and adapted by Benjamin “Mr Miyagi” Lee, the Singaporean version of this European cult hit features a star-studded cast of local actors.

Set in the year 2071, Forever Young chronicles the life of a group of retired actors living in a nursing home. These zany nonagenarians – former pillars of Singapore’s Arts scene – are determined to prove that it is not all behind them. The residents do as they are told, but, once their no-nonsense caregiver Sister Sara leaves the room, the pensionable performers belt out musical theatre canons, rock classics and more – the way that only old people can!

Directed by Hossan Leong, Forever Young features prominent actors Karen Tan, Julian Wong and Leong himself who will reprise their roles. They will be joined by favourite Radio personality Denise Tan, Mark Waite, Kimberly Chan and Gurmit Singh, Singapore’s iconic funnyman, who makes a comeback to the theatre scene after a hiatus of 16 years.

Through the cast’s arthritic dance moves and renditions of familiar songs that include Jay-Z’s Forever Young, Amy Winehouse’s Rehab, Bruno Mars and Silk Sonic’s Leave The Door Open and Aqua’s Barbie Girl, this eponymous musical revue addresses dementia and other conditions associated with ageing.

Whatever you make of these issues, you can be sure this gaggle of geriatrics will never go gentle into that good night, but burn and rave and rock and roll at close of day.

Date: Tue - Sun, 22 Sep - 3 Oct 2021
Time: Tue & Wed: 8pm Thu & Fri: 6pm, 9pm Sat: 4pm, 8pm Sun: 3pm, 7pm
Duration: 1 hour 30 minutes

Sharing its goals with SRT’s acclaimed The Young Company (TYC) acting programme, it aims to equip and nurture selected actors-in-training with the confidence, transferable employment skills, and communication techniques that they will need to shine onstage, as well as in their career of choice.
