A chance to dazzle like Teresa Teng

Last May, Dama amazed audiences with their highly acclaimed production “The Moon Speaks For My Heart”. In essence, the show was a tribute to the beautifully talented Taiwanese songbird of the 1970s and 80s, Teresa Teng. Indeed until today, many still speak of the show and remember the burst of colours and the visual impact it gave to everyone, not forgetting the excellent music and singing during the show.

Dama is a multiple award-winning music theatre company based in Malaysia. Since 1994, Dama’s musical theatre and productions have been staged to critical acclaims throughout the region. Dama is led by Khor Seng Chew as the music director, and Pun Kai Loon as the artistic director. It has performed works from the east and the west, and have had their unique brand of music performed at international music festivals. The musicians have also been invited to play with the Malaysian Philharmonic Orchestra and have participated in the Tsunami Charity Concert to help raise funds for the Tsunami victims.

This year, Dama will restage the show to once again pay tribute to the legendary songstress. The show features popular songs by Teresa Teng, including The Moon Speaks For My Heart, What Have You Got To Say, and When Will You Return, all melodies that have remained a big part of many people’s lives.

If you’re itching to be a part of this production, and to work with professionals who are focused on bringing magic to the stage, DAMA is conducting an audition. It’s definitely going to be a dogfight as many people are more than eager to be a part of a show like this one. So, it could be your turn to stand under the spotlight and experience being part of a grand musical production.
