SightlinesTurnsOne2-1Event: “Sight Lines Turns One” Birthday Bash
Venue: Hood Bar and Cafe @ Bugis+
Date: 3rd March 2013

Happy 1st Birthday Derrick, Sylvia and Engie!

Sight Lines Entertainment, one of the youngest and most exciting new theatre companies in Singapore, just turned one recently, and what better way to do it than to celebrate it with friends and members of the theatre community.

In just its first year of existence, Sight Lines – consisting of Derrick Chew, Sylvia Tan and Engie Ho – has put on well-received productions such as “Trainstopping” and Jean Tay’s “BOOM”, with yet more exciting productions lined up in the near future.

Artistic Director Derrick Chew took great pains to acknowledge and thank all the many people who have helped make Sight Lines what it is today.

Ever the promoter, he also wasted no opportunity to bring on the cast of the upcoming musical “Edges” – consisting of Mina Kaye, Benjamin Kheng, Linden Furnell and Kristy Griffin – onstage to do a few numbers to whet our appetites for when the show opens in early April.

And whet our appetites it did.

There’s nothing like hearing and seeing the cast perform some of the show’s numbers live, right before your very eyes.

What followed was an even bigger treat, as Derrick pulled a rabbit out of the hat by performing a solo medley himself (both singing and playing the piano!) of well-known numbers from “Les Miserables”, but with lyrics specially altered to bring out his message of gratitude in the most hilarious of manners.

It was probably the most amusing portion of the entire evening.

They say it is never easy to start a theatre company, much less keep it running.

Many have tried, but not many have been able to sustain it.

Kudos to Sight Lines for their admirable brand of courage, fervour and faith in perservering at their passion despite the odds, and may they see many more jubilant birthday celebrations to come.

Happy Birthday once again Sight Lines, and many happy returns!
