In light of Covid-19, some of our charities have been facing a decline in donations, and it will be a challenging journey ahead as we recover from this crisis. 

The City of Good Show partners with the stars of Dream Academy to fundraise and entertain you and your loved ones!

 

Selena Tan is a two-time winning actress at the Asian Television Awards, producer, director, writer, and performer. In 2000, Selena started Dream Academy®, one of Singapore’s first private limited Arts and Entertainment companies. Dream Academy is best known for their well-loved brands, Meenah and Cheenah, Crazy Christmas®, Happy Ever Laughter®, Broadway Beng®, The Hossan Leong Show, Kumar’s standup comedies at the Esplanade, and of course, the Dim Sum Dollies® her most successful brand to date.

 

Pam Oei  has been in over a hundred theatre, television and film productions and is known equally for being a dramatic and comedic actor. This multi-hyphenate is also a producer and director for theatre and film but is probably best known for being one third of the Dim Sum Dollies, Singapore’s most popular comedy cabaret act. In 2018, she performed her one-woman show Faghag to completely sold out houses at the Singapore Theatre Festival.

Siti Khalijah Zainal made her debut as a full-time theatre actress after attending The Necessary Stage’s Theatre for Youth Ensemble programme in 2003. She has since worked with a wide range of theatre companies, both locally and internationally. She won the Best Actress Award twice at The Straits Times Life! Theatre Awards for her performances in Model Citizens (2010) and Off Centre (2015). She was awarded the Young Artist Award by the National Arts Council in 2014.

 

Special Guest Star of the Week:

Rishi Budhrani made history by becoming the first Singaporean to win the Hong Kong International Comedy Competition and perform at the Gotham Comedy Club in NYC. Since then, Rishi has been invited to headline shows in Sydney, Melbourne, India, China, Sri Lanka and Dubai. Locally, Rishi has performed multiple sold-out shows of his signature solo stand-up comedy performances titled: Cannot Means Cannot. He’s also been seen in Dream Academy’s Happy Ever Laughter and Mediacorp’s The Noose and Kakis LIVE.

 

In the second episode, we are fundraising for 15 charities championing the Disability cause. Disability does not define their ability. The beneficiaries are talented in many areas and are making impact in various industries. Many of them are chefs, bakers, artists and athletes at a national level! Covid-19 has hindered their lives and finances, as some of their caregivers' jobs were also affected. 

Join us in making a difference through our giving and celebrate their abilities!
