‘Chestnuts’ Singapore’s very first and longest running parody show has spoofed movies, television programs, politics, current affairs, popular music and the theatre scene.
Since those early days, the Chestnuts have presented many shows. The creators have sharpened their wits and pens and produced not just entertainment but also sophisticated satire and witty sketches and characters that are truly memorable.
This staging of Chestnuts pokes fun at all the juicy goings-on in Singapore. Plus spoofs and satire galore – Les MiX with Hugh Jackman as Jean Valjean / Wolverine, new policies for policing sex-for-grades, a poke at local theatre from foreign talent in the park (Othello) to Ah Girls to Men (The Importance of Being Earnest) and more!
