It is a Singapore Idol reunion of sorts between ex-judge Dick Lee and Idol alumni Tabitha Nauser and Joakim Gomez in the upcoming revival of 70s musical comedy Hotpants.

Nauser, 22, who emerged second runner-up in the third season of Singapore Idol in 2009, exclaims: The moment I knew Dick was going to be the director of Hotpants, I immediately knew I wanted to be a part of this."

Gomez, 25, who came in fifth in the second season in 2006, was equally thrilled. "Having Dick ask me to try out for this show was an absolute honour and I thought, why not give it a shot?"

Other than Hotpants, which will be showing from Aug 14 to 30 at the Drama Centre Theatre, the three will also be collaborating on this year's National Day programme together.
