Be transported into a bygone era with a spectacular dance, drama and music production with tales from Old Shanghai to Fragrance Bay. Aptly titled, Glitz & Glamour, this stunning example of musical theatre by Dama Asia Productions has a distinct Asian flavour, reviving the rich legacy of popular Chinese music spanning from the era of Old Shanghai, the Silver Screen of Shaw Brothers and Cathay cinemas. Performed in the style of a docu-tainment, the talented cast bring a spectacle of dance and musical classics such as heart-warming songs from the evergreen Golden Chinese Oldies (shi dai qu).

Glitz & Glamour weaves together two parallel stories that explore themes of celebrity, nostalgia, musical history and comedy in an entertaining display of theatrical flair. The plot is narrated in English and highlights the rise of the shi dai qu genre during the 1930s to 1960s. The life of the protagonist, Budding Rose, is a classic tale of a country girl leaving her home to fulfil her aspirations of stardom in the big city. Young and inexperienced, she enters Shanghai’s seedy nightclub scene, competing against stars like Lady Star, to seek her fame and fortune, and vying for attention in love.
