From left we have Liza Foong (Director and Producer  from New String Ministry), Xia Hui (Popular Veteran Singer), Wallace Ang (Mediacorp Love 97.2 FM DJ) and Peter Yu (Ex-Mediacorp Artiste)

Ex-Mediacorp artiste Peter Yu will play a forgiving dad, along with Xiahui and Wallace Ang in the upcoming musical production ‘The Search for True Love’ on 26th July 2015, 7.30pm at the Drama Centre Theatre, National Library.

This play will be Yu’s second stage play, after a ten – year break from full-time acting. The production, managed by New Strings Ministry, will explore the notions of love, kinship and forgiveness. Peter Yu’s son, played by Mediacorp Radio Love 97.2FM’s DJ Wallace Ang, will face his greatest tribulation as he dabbles into some untouched boundaries. Set in the 70s, theatre patrons will get a chance to relive the iconic settings of popular hang-out places like the Kopi-Tiam and Cabaret.

Peter Yu, a freelance artiste and taxi-driver said ‘I am indeed very honored to be invited to be part of this musical production. The story, in a way, parallels my life as I was also given a second chance after my wrongdoings. This is my second time dabbling myself into stage acting and I must say I am loving every bit of it. I hope Singaporeans will give me another chance to watch me on this set and understand more about love and life as a whole’.

Liza Foong, Director and Producer from New String Ministry commented ‘It has been a rough journey putting this stage play together. The actors and crew are not exactly full-time performers. However, we were able to put our act together simply because of the cause we believe; Love trescends everything and we hope to share with our audience about its importance.

Wallace Ang, Mediacorp Love 97.2 FM DJ, who is acting as the son of Peter Yu, said ‘I am glad to have embarked on this musical journey of love, life, regret and redemption. Hope you’ll join me in this incredibly enriching experience’.
