Detention Katong
A brand new musical comedy written by Selena Tan, about BAD girls who do GOOD.
Amanda Chin is a straight ‘A’s student, teacher’s pet, and loved by all. One day, she gets herself sent to detention, and has never been happier. She is intent on showing us that good girls are not all good, and that bad girls can do good. Amanda’s mother, Linda, (Serene Chen, Public Enemy) who seems very secretive these days, sparks off this intrigue.
The girls are led by Valerie Choo, Kimberly Chan, Melissa Gan, Natalie Yeap, Sharon Sum, Alyssa Lie, Munah Bagharib, and iNCH Chua.
All this while, the girls are surrounded by a hotchpotch of teachers: The Discipline Mistress of Pain (Neo Swee Lin, Phua Chu Kang’s Ah Ma), a hotshot know-it-all Principal (Darius Tan, Monkey Goes West), the School Counsellor in need of counselling (Sebastian Tan a.k.a Broadway Beng®) and the worldly-wise Malay & PE teacher (Suhaimi Yusof, The Noose).
Lyrics for Detention Katong were written by Selena Tan (Dim Sum Dollies & Sing Dollar), with a team of music composers headed by Elaine Chan (Dim Sum Dollies, Monkey Goes West & Sing Dollar), Sarah Cheng-De Winne (Brand New), Dave Tan (Electrico) and Benjamin Kheng (The Sam Willows).
As sure as the sun rises in the East, Katong is the hippest spot to be spotted in your teenage years. However, these years are also one of the most challenging in life. You go from Dimples to Pimples, Ponytails to Telling Tales, all while trying to be cool, or just pretending to follow the rules.
Come and celebrate a local rite of passage with tears, and with laughter.  Whether you are a teenager, a parent of a teenager, have ever wanted to strangle a teenager, or ever been a teenager… Go to SISTIC now and get your tickets. Don’t be Detained, be Entertained!
