SINGAPORE: Wildrice Theatre went back in time to raise funds at its annual charity gala called "Singapore A-Go-Go" on Thursday evening.

And regression never looked so fine as the 60s-themed song and dance extravaganza raked in some S$300,000 in donations.

It was one show-stopping performance after another, as thespians belted hits from yesteryear, complete with dazzling costumes.

The gala event was co-hosted by Larry Lai, one of Singapore's favourite TV personalities during the 80s.

It attracted a mix of corporate bigwigs, bankers and dignitaries.

The money raised from the show will go towards supporting the artistic and educational programmes at Wild Rice.

True to the theatre company's signature productions, the event was loud, colourful and clearly, a lot of fun. - CNA/yy
