Shining Through & Sadako

Shining Through - Choir Singing

Shining Through - Choir Singing

This was a charity concert for the unprivileged children - Ray of Hope. The choir headed by HK Chong sung beautifully.


This play was pretty was about Sadako Sasaki. She was a 2 years old girl when the atomic bomb was dropped on August 6, 1945, near her home by Misasa Bridge in Hiroshima, Japan. At the time of the explosion Sadako was at home, about one mile from Ground Zero. By November 1954, chicken pox had developed on her neck and behind her ears. Then in January 1955, purple spots had started to form on her legs. Subsequently, she was diagnosed with leukemia. (Wiki)

But i felt that the producers made the theatre look more like Sadako Yamamura. Sadako Y was actually the girl from the movie The Ring. So the whole play there were spirits which reminds me of Sadako Y then Sadako S. I mean it did tell the story of Sadako S but at the back of my head it was an adaptation of the movie The Ring.

I would freak out many kids and there were a couple of families who walked out. It was too scary. Nevertheless, I found this theatre to be one of the best play I have seen so far. Kudos to the director Peter Chong and director, Ivan Lee.
