After performing in the opening ceremony of the first-ever Youth Olympic Games (YOG) in 2010, Martial House is proud to be involved in the opening ceremony of yet another major sporting event, the 28th SEA Games 2015! To prepare for such a massive performance, rehearsals are inevitable. Sometimes, rehearsals could take up to 14 long hours! Kudos to the Martial House Stars for their time, effort and commitment! It is really not easy to make such sacrifices especially when most of the performers had competitions and examinations to juggle with. The Martial House Stars will be performing for Act 2 of the Opening Ceremony. Do particularly look out for Koh Hao Xuan & Austin Chong Sze Ze who have been chosen to be lead performers for the act! One of them will also be performing a breath-taking stunt so do look forward to the performance! Among the other leads, one of them happens to be the son of renowned local actor and director, Jack Neo! “What an honour for Hao Xuan & Austin to perform on the same stage as my idol’s son!” exclaimed Hao Xuan’s happy and proud mother after meeting her idol. The Opening Ceremony of the 28th SEA Games 2015 will be held on 5 June 2015, Friday. Do remember to catch the performance of the Martial House Stars!
