Updated 9 December 2014 – Congratulations to Walter Lim for winning the contest!
Since 2002, the Dim Sum Dollies have been delighting Singapore in their 3-inch heels, sequined dresses, feathered head gear and stunning the crowds with quick costume changes. Known for their bold humour, the Dim Sum Dollies will once again show off their satirical chops, as they explore different issues, current and old.
Selena Tan and Pam Oei will be joined by their newest Dolly, Denise Tan. Together, they will charm the audience again with their quick-witted sass and wickedly candid humour.
This December, the Dollies take a mischievous peek at our recent history, starting from when we first gained our independence – its Singapore from 1965!
“It’s all delightfully, if dangerously, close to home and heart – dealing with issues that are incredibly recent – elections, detentions and all things wonderfully associated to Nation-building! Sounds risky? The Dim Sum Dollies would not have it any other way – we love risky and… risque.” Said Selena Tan.
I have 2 tickets for the 12 Dec, 8pm show to giveaway (Worth $256)! To win, simply follow me on either Facebook, Instagram or Twitter; reshare this blog post and have the following in your post so I can find your entry – #DimSumDollies @DimSumDollies @Alvinology @Alvinologist
Contest closes on 10 Dec (Wed).
Dim Sum Dollies – The History of Singapore Part 2
The mischievously funny Dim Sum Dollies are back with more delicious satire and a wickedly candid take on part 2 of The History of Singapore.
Singapore is almost 50 and it’s time to take stock: Who did what, when, how and to whom?
Goodbye pre-1965 B.C. years (‘Before Crying’)! The Dollies are doing a new song and dance about our A.D. years (‘After Drying’… the tears of separation, that is).
To keep up with the LIGHTNING quick changes on our little island, the Dollies will make lightning quick costume changes, switching from icon to icon and completely redrawing the boundaries of comedy on the Esplanade stage!
- The ‘Two is enough’ girls meet the Ribena kids
- Kallang roars and Talentime scores
- The Courtesy Lion takes on the Spitting Merlion
- The Anson Bye-Bye-elections and the ISA Wave of detentions
- Great Singapore inventions – CPF, HDB, COE, GST and ERP
- The Singapore River clean-up and the Mas Selamat mess-up
There’s so much more to our history – just read between the lines!
From the A-Go-Go 1960s to the ‘Stomp’-ing 2000s, the Dollies lay claim to Singapore in their quest for a complete Monop…er… DOLLYPOLY!
