The World's Best-Loved Musical - ANNIE Returns To Marina Bay Sands, Singapore

| |
Hi Huneybees,



BASE Entertainment Asia is proud to announce the return of everyone’s favourite little red-headed orphan to Singapore in time-honoured form.  The U.S. National Tour of ANNIE, now in its second smash year, will play at The MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands from 24 August 2016 for a limited season.  Directed by original lyricist and director Martin Charnin for the 19th time, this production of ANNIE is a brand new physical incarnation of the iconic Tony Award®-winning original.

Inspired by the famous comic strip Little Orphan Annie which first ran in the New York Daily News in 1924, this uplifting rags-to-riches story of plucky young Annie’s journey from the hard-knock New York orphanage to the luxurious home of billionaire businessman Oliver Warbucks, has become one of the best-loved family musicals of all time.
The beloved score for ANNIE includes “Maybe”, “It’s the Hard Knock Life”, “You’re Never Fully Dressed Without a Smile”, “Easy Street”, “I Don’t Need Anything But You” and the eternal anthem of optimism, “Tomorrow”.

ANNIE remains one of the biggest Broadway musical hits ever.  The original production opened 0n 21 April, 1977 at the Alvin Theatre where it ran for 2,377 performances before closing in 1983. The show dominated the Tony Awards that year, winning seven awards in total including Best Musical, Best Book (Thomas Meehan), Best Original Score (music by Charles Strouse and lyrics by Martin Charnin), and Best Choreography . It also won the New York Drama Critics Circle Award for Best Musical, seven Drama Desk Awards including Best Musical, and the Grammy for Best Cast Show Album.  It has since been performed in 28 languages and has been running around the world for 37 years.  The classic film musical was released in 1982.

The production features a 25 member company: in the title role of Annie is Heidi Gray, an 11-year-old actress from the Augusta, GA area, making her tour debut. Gilgamesh Taggett stars as Oliver Warbucks.  In the role of Miss Hannigan is Lynn Andrews.  Also starring in the tour are Ashley Edler as Grace, Garrett Deagon as Rooster, Lucy Werner as Lily and Jeffrey B. Duncan as FDR.  The orphans are Sage Bentley as Tessie, Angelina Carballo as Kate, Lynn Masako Cheng as Duffy, LillyBea Ireland as Pepper, Bridget Carly Marsh as July and Alyssa Emily Marvin as Molly.
The celebrated design team includes scenic design by Tony Award® winner Beowulf Boritt (Act One, The Scottsboro Boys, Rock of Ages), costume design by Costume Designer’s Guild Award winner Suzy Benzinger (Blue Jasmine, Movin’ Out, Miss Saigon), lighting design by Tony Award® winner Ken Billington (Chicago, Annie, White Christmas) and sound design by Tony Award® nominee Peter Hylenski (Rocky, Bullets Over Broadway, Motown). The lovable mutt “Sandy” is once again trained by Tony Award® Honoree William Berloni (Annie, A Christmas Story, Legally Blonde).    Musical supervision and additional orchestrations are by Keith Levenson (Annie, She Loves Me, Dreamgirls). Casting is by Joy Dewing CSA, Joy Dewing Casting (Soul Doctor, Wonderland).  The tour is produced by TROIKA Entertainment, LLC.

Find Out What Has Been Bothering Zoe Tay Before Star Awards 2016

| |
Hi Huneybees,




Weeks before MediaCorp Star Awards (红星大奖) 2016 , Zoe Tay (鄭惠玉) shared a problem that has been bothering her, with media and guests at an event organized by ACUVUE®.

The Queen of Caldecott Hill, Zoe Tay (鄭惠玉) recently discovered that she has Presbyopia (long sightedness; 老花眼) and was initially concerned about her condition until she learned that it was part of her graceful ageing process and thankfully not a disease.



On April 13th,  unveiled as the ACUVUE® brand ambassador for  1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand MULTIFOCAL range, the latest addition to its extensive portfolio of contact lenses, Zoe Tay (鄭惠玉)   shared her uplifting message of living sharper than ever as individuals approach the prime of their lives – their 40s. 


Initially was too embarrassed to ask for bigger font on acting scripts, Zoe Tay (鄭惠玉) has had to managed the stress of Presbyopia (老花眼) secretly while juggling between work and her family. She shared an incident where she felt bad having to take a long time to read the menu at a dimly lighted restaurant and ignored her children in the progress. 
 
Fortunately through her Optometrist (验光师), Zoe Tay (鄭惠玉) found her savior in was 1-DAY ACUVUE® MOIST® Brand MULTIFOCAL and no longer has to struggle to read.


 
Prior to meeting Zoe Tay (鄭惠玉), media and guests were first brought through an experiential journey beginning with Zone 1 that highlighted the key milestones individuals in their 40s could embrace unhampered by aging issues, before moving to Zone 2 which brought them up close with what their world could like with Presbyopia. 




The session finally took a deep dive into the science behind Presbyopia and the ACUVUE® range of multifocal contact lenses with Sabrina Hsieh, Head of Marketing for ACUVUE®,  Shirley Loh, Johnson & Johnson Vision Care, Associate Director of Professional Affairs and Oh Shwu Ji, Store Manager & Optometrist of Specialist Eye Care Centre. 


Let's wish Zoe Tay (鄭惠玉) success in her Star Awards 2016 Best Actress nomination tonight.

Madagascar LIVE! Starts In Singapore With Never Before Screen Projection Sets

| |
Hi Huneybees,


Yipee! It's official! Our favourite characters from Madagascar have landed safely in Singapore's Mastercard Theatres at Marina Bay Sands! Huney'Z World was there for a quick preview on what's to come and I got the opportunity to 'Move it, Move it' with these lovely friends!



This is the first time Madagascar LIVE! will be using projections on the stage to bring us from scene to scene and in between sets. And Yes! Singapore audiences will be the first in world to experience it before everybody else!


Here's a video performed by Alex the lion, Marty the zebra and the loveable Penguins to 2 of the showtunes. 



While we only caught a glimpse of the actual performance and were told that other characters were still trying to settle down and getting used to the Singapore's weather, I bet the Madagascar LIVE! will certainly entertain audiences of all ages and make a good entry introduction to theatre shows for the kids. 


Madgascar LIVE! is coming to Singapore 21st April 2016 and for more ticketing details, go to --- 

So, be sure to get your tickets early and come join us at this funfilled show! =)

[What's New] Swatching The M.A.C Cosmetics Mineralize Skinfinish Pinwheels Pans

| |
Hi Huneybees,


M.A.C Cosmetics is definitely making my pockets bleed this month with their amazing collection launches and one that I am looking out for this weekend is their Mineralize Skinfinish Collection. With strobing and face contouring being the 'IN' thing now, these pinwheel pans are a must-have in all our cosmetic bags.


Introducing Mineralize Skinfinish in five limited-edition shade waves from Faintly Fabulous to Sunny Side and Perfectly Lit. Baked together in a single pan, each palette features four complementary shades in a pinwheel design that can be applied alone or swirled together for a healthy glow. For a delicate, lasting finish, apply with the 137 Brush or the 133 Brush for each shade individually. Go on – give it a swirl.
Be it for highlighting or contouring the face or giving your cheeks a little blush, these 5 pinwheel pans will be good to have, especially for the light travellers. The colour payoff is really good with a simple swipe and every skin tone beauty, will be able to find one for themselves. Here's my swatch of the colours...



FAINTLY FABULOUS
