WHO is conducting your drama workshop?

Pamela is one of few effectively trilingual theatre practitioners in Singapore. She has years of experience in Cantonese Opera, English and Mandarin stage productions. She has been extensively involved with veteran performances in the last 15 years. She also ventured stage managing, scriptwriting and directing at least 40 plays in recent years. Pamela has represented Singapore in Shanghai and Beijing, China. She has been featured on television programmes and by press media for Cantonese Opera.

Formerly practising as a staff nurse and counsellor, she has undergone training from Nanyang Polytechnic (Nursing Diploma), LEE Community College (Counseling & Psychology Diploma). Her former work of grief counselling in the hospital and youth works in the church ministries had spur her to explore drama as a channel of outreach and therapy. She is also associated with Singapore After Care Association volunteering works for ex-convicts from Singapore Prisons.  She also was involved in smoking prevention programmes in schools with Singapore Anti Tuberculosis Association, such as conducting talks at school assembly and group interventions programmes for under-aged smokers.

Till date, she has conducted drama workshops for various organisations over weekends which led to more that 100 performances locally and overseas. More recently, she spends much of her day hours in community elderly work.
