TitoudaoTitoudao returns after 6-year hiatus
An English musical drama set in the 1940s on the life of a Hokkien street opera actress, Madam Oon Ah Chiam, Titoudao traces her struggles against all odds to become a renowned wayang (Street Opera) star in Singapore and Malaysia.
Through her colourful life story, we see the societal and economical changes in Singapore. It is a moving account of the struggles of a petite Chinese woman set against the progression of an ever developing island city.
A heartwarming play that is poignant yet hilarious, it will make you burst into peals of laughter at one moment and weep the next. You will leave the theatre inspired by this extraordinary life experience of Madam Oon.
The star studded cast includes luminaries such as Pam Oei, Beatrice Chia-Richmond, Kumar, Karen Tan, Sebastian Tan, Chua En Lai, Aidli ‘Alin’ Mosbit, Gordon Choy and newcomer Judy Tan. Written and directed by Toy Factory’s Chief Artistic Director Goh Boon Teck.
