  • Talented actors, riveting tale, historical and cultural education regarding your travel destination - all wrapped up and packaged in a nice and air conditioned theater on the Chew Jetty. The Jetty's themselves are a site to see and an engineering feat of stilted homes to generations of immigrants that are resilient and resourceful. The script was written by a Jetty native and performed by local actors with beautiful talent and passion. You are supporting local art, conservation, history, and theatrical education while enjoying the show yourself. Truly recommend!
  • This show was a great surprise! Host was extremely helpful, the cast were entertaining and the venue cool and welcoming. The history covered in the show was very interesting, with video and pictures giving you a better insight I to the multiple hurdles the jetty clans went through to make the jetty what it is today. Highly recommend.
