I was invited to attend the final rehearsal of #DetentionKatong by @dreamacademysg, and I came with an expectation of refreshing comedy. What a nice surprise, @DreamAcademySG seems to make a shift for two things; younger audience and social insights.
Teens, lack of parental attention, peer pressure from ring of friends, social media and identity crisis - it's a real life put on stage to make you think about your family, your life. You will start thinking about your Instagram feed and students will wonder about their school days. The comedy is still there with my favorite actor @suhaimiyusof_official, but I'd say the young actors (with their awesome voices!) really deliver it.
