Super Mommy (我的妈妈是 ENY?狮城温 馨版)
Fri May 18 - Fri Jun 22 @ 8:00 am - 5:00 pm$38 - $108
Be inspired by the power of kinship, filial piety and respect for our domestic helpers as Super Mommy (我的妈妈是 ENY?狮城温馨版), a heartwarming and entertaining Mandarin musical, makes its global debut outside of Taiwan at Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) this May after multiple sold-out runs in Taiwan last year.
Running for five weeks at Resorts World Theatre, this live original theatrical production features well known local personalities including Jaspers Lai (赖宇涵), Lin You Fa (林尤发), Chriz Tong (汤薇恩) and Benjamin Josiah Tan (陈俊铭) taking on stage characters set in a three-generation household who grapple with real life issues like vulnerability of family ties, treatment of domestic helpers, work-life balance and dementia.
Dramatic changes descend upon the lives of young Jeremy (小杰), Mother, Father and Grandma when Grandpa’s dementia deteriorates. To better care for Grandpa, Indonesian helper, Eny, is brought in to help out. From someone the family barely knows about, Eny gradually bonds with everybody and becomes an anchoring member the family can barely do without.
Neglected by his preoccupied parents, Jeremy develops an attachment to the capable Eny, who also misses her own son in her hometown, as his motherly figure. Expect loads of simmering tensions, misunderstood intentions, emotional outbursts and tear-jerking moments.
Look out for our young talents too! Eight child performers including Estovan Reizo Cheah, who plays Jeremy, were handpicked in person by effervescent Hong Kong actress Nancy Sit through an audition for Super Mommy, and coached by Mother Hong Kong Arts Centre, an arts centre founded by Nancy. Together with the principal adult cast, they will take theatre goers on a reflective life journey that promise to tug at one’s heartstrings, as they view the complicated adult world through their innocent lenses.
