Rose Chan musical set for November

PETALING JAYA: Tin Tan, the dancer who will play striptease queen Rose Chan in a musical to be staged in November, will be “nude” in only one scene.
Executive producer of upcoming musical Rose Rose I Love You Ee Lai Cheng said theatrical tricks would be used to make it seem as if Tin is naked. “It is challenging playing Rose Chan as the character is totally different from my personality,” said Tin, who described herself as timid.

The players: Tin (right) will play the role of striptease queen Rose Chan while Soo will act the part of a rowdy character named Xuan.different from my personality,” said Tin, who described herself as timid.
“Previously, I have acted in Chinese theatre productions, but this is a new experience altogether,” said Tin.

According to the petite actress, the most difficult part would be to dance seductively on stage.
“Rose Chan was a cabaret dancer who became a striptease queen. I am still trying to get used to the idea of having to express myself in a sexy manner like how the controversial dancer did,” said Tin, 29.

Yim Mei Choo and Low Ngai Yuen wrote Rose Rose I Love You. The storyline is about a travelling company of performers whose nightly earnings are dictated by the degree of applause. In that vein, each performer would try to outdo each other.

Actress-model Carmen Soo, who plays rival Xuan, said she was excited about the musical. This is her first musical and would showcase her singing, dancing and acting abilities. “Xuan is a fictional character, so I can use my imagination to portray that person. It is quite fun playing a rowdy character who is the opposite of my personality,” said the actress.

Also in the cast are Tony Eusoff, K.K. Wong, Ling Tan, Lim Tiong Wooi, Gan Hui Yee, Angie Teoh, Anrie Too and Colleen Daphne Chung. The musical will be staged at Genting International Showroom from Nov 2-4 and Nov 9-11. Showtime is 8.30pm and tickets are priced at RM68, RM88 and RM118.
