Ho Chi Minh, April, 2016 — Tan Hiep Phat (THP) Beverage Group is proud to introduce Vietnam National Drama Theatre’s two productions of Hamlet and Vietnamese Kitchen Gods Coming to Singapore to theatregoers in Singapore on 25th March, 2016.
This is the first time THP’s pioneering Corporate and Social Responsibility (CSR) Program has taken an Arts project overseas. The Arts is a field that Phuong Tran, Deputy CEO of THP, is keen to develop further “We are enormously proud of our CSR projects, which have historically focused on sport and equipping the communities of Vietnam with the necessary infrastructure to improve trade and transport. This next phase of our work is incredibly exciting and we look forward to showcasing the Vietnamese culture to a new audience.”
THP flew in 70 members of the two productions from Hanoi, who arrived to rapturous applause as they welcomed by Singapore’s Vietnamese Embassy. Ngoc Hoang – Quoc Khanh, who is playing the part of the Kitchen God, thanked those involved “for the overwhelming support of the Vietnamese Embassy, the Central Committee and our generous sponsor. We feel excited to be here and are very much look forward to performing in front of this audience and particularly talking to the young people in Singapore about both Hamlet and Vietnamese Drama.”
Nguyen Vinh, Director of Vietnam National Drama Theatre, said “To stage a performance overseas is often a great challenge. We take pride in our large productions for audiences that appeal to all age groups. We believe the event will resonate with the people of Singapore while also promoting Vietnamese arts and culture.”
Besides Hamlet, THP is enormously proud to support the production of Kitchen Gods Coming to Singapore – an exclusive production that has been specifically developed for this occasion. Kitchen Gods Comedian Chi Trung said “I recently travelled with the entire group of Kitchen Gods to perform in front of the Embassy of Vietnam and Vietnamese students. We received very positive feedback in Vietnam and were inspired to showcase our work to an international audience, including Singapore.”
