Secondary: The Musical by Checkpoint Theatre

April 19 @ 8:00 pm - April 28 @ 3:00 pm SMT

$45 – $115

School isn’t easy for anyone, whether you’re a student or a teacher. And with exams coming, nobody’s life will be the same.

Pushed and pulled in different directions, Lilin is a young teacher trying to make it through yet another term while helping her students. Battle-worn Secondary 3s Ming, Omar, and Reyansh are trying to handle the challenges in school and at home with bravery and grace. But in a system that values specific kinds of success, can their efforts be recognised?

Hilarious and deeply moving, this landmark work by Checkpoint Theatre is an unforgettable dive into life in a Singapore school, with all its delicate joys, complicated heartbreak and unexpected beauty.

Playwright-composer weish is hailed as “one of the city-state’s most acclaimed musicians” (UK’s New Musical Express), creating soundscapes that are “hauntingly emotive and superbly alluring” (Bandwagon). With this astonishing new work, she forges a contemporary landscape of storytelling unlike any other musical.

Under the direction of the acclaimed Huzir Sulaiman, Secondary: The Musical features a stellar ensemble cast of Adeeb Fazah, Audrey Luo, Ethel Yap, Genevieve Tan, Joshua Lim, Krish Natarajan, Nadya Zaheer, Rebekah Sangeetha Dorai, Shahid Nasheer, Teoh Jun Vinh, Tiara Yap and Tricia Tan.

With a powerful, affecting script, and incredible new songs, Secondary: The Musical questions what happens when life is dictated by a final grade.

All performances of Secondary: The Musical will be fully captioned.

Duration: Approximately 2 hours 40 minutes with 15 minutes interval
