HCM CITY (VNS) — Promising comedian Thu Trang will perform in her first ever stage production tomorrow in HCM City.
Hai Hay Hu Hon (What a Good Play) will feature three short plays – Cai Gio Rac (Waste Basket) written by Vu Thanh, Ganh Hat Chau (Troupe of Chau Van - a ceremonial music genre generated from the northern province of Nam Dinh) and Quan Che 3C (3C Sweet Pudding Shop) by Bao Ngoc.
Trang, 30, said, "The plays are not just funny but also reflect on various aspects of life.
"The show is [a fulfilment of] my dream to stage good works in the best possible conditions."
She will be joined on stage by top comedians Hoai Linh, Tran Thanh, Huu Quoc, and Truong Giang, and singers Ngo Kien Huy and Tieu Chau Nhu Quynh will be special guests in the audience.
Trang, who graduated from the HCM City College of Theatre and Cinema in 2004, learnt acting there from veteran artist Minh Nhi.
But by 2003 she had begun to perform in cafeterias.
After graduation she was invited by popular city theatres like 5B, Phu Nhuan, and Nu Cuoi Moi.
In 2012 Trang was nominated for the first time for a Mai Vang (Golden Ochna) Award for her role of a reporter called Bong Sen Tim in comedy-horror play Hoa Hon (Paint the Spirits) staged by The Gioi Tre Theatre.
Her stocks have been rising since. She was again nominated in 2013.
This year she was nominated for HCM City Television's HTV Awards where she rubbed shoulders with star comedians like Hoai Linh and Kim Xuan.
The actress has also acted in movies. This year she appeared in two popular films - Director Victor Vu's Co Dau Dai Chien 2 (Battle of the Brides 2) and Tran Cong Thanh's Xui Ma Hen (Crazy Lucky).
She is working in two more films - Phan Minh's Toc Do va Duong Cong (Speed and Curve) and Director Charlie Nguyen's De Hoi Tinh (Let Hoi Deal With It) - which are set for a Lunar New Year release.
Hai Hay Hu Hon will be staged at Nam Quang Theatre, 147 Cach Mang Thang 8, District 3. — VNS
