Actor Adrian Pang will host “The ONE Ball . . . Making a Difference” on Saturday 8 September at The Fullerton Hotel.
Along with his wife Tracie, Adrian Pang is the Artistic Co-Director at PANGDEMONiUM! Productions, “Singapore’s most kick-ass theatre company”.
Adrian is widely acclaimed for his work in television and theatre, including Best Actor awards for roles in the comedy Ah Girl, the drama series Red Thread and the stage productions of The Dresser and Much Ado About Nothing.
His favourite role by far though is “Daddy”. He and Tracie have two sons, Zack and Xander, which helps explain perhaps why he is enthused to step outside the theatre to help ONE (SINGAPORE).
“I’ve always had an overwhelming feeling of needing to do something outside of my little ‘fake’ world to reach out in some tangible and meaningful way to the ‘real’ world,” says Adrian. “ONE (Singapore) is the perfect opportunity to do that.”
The ONE Ball is not the first time Adrian has lent his voice to help build a better world. Pangdemonium!’s production of Spring Awakening addressed issues of adolescence, like teen pregnancy and suicide, in a creative but provocative manner. Adrian and Pangdemonium Productions have also previously supported AWARE, the Children’s Cancer Foundation and the Singapore Children’s Society.
Adrian is taking time out from an intense rehearsal schedule to host The ONE Ball. Barely a week later, you can catch him on stage, along with Janice Koh and George Young, in Pangdemonium’s production of the dark comic showbiz satire, Swimming with Sharks at the Drama Centre from 20 September to 7 October 2012.
The ONE Ball is expected to become an annual event, both to finance ONE (SINGAPORE)’s campaign as well as to remind the organisation’s supporters of the ways in which each and every one of us can contribute to the community and make a difference in people’s lives.
Tickets for the The ONE Ball 2012 are on sale for S$250 per person or S$2500 per table. Sponsorship opportunities are also available.
