We have been sharing our review for all the children’s musicals for which our kids had the benefit to enjoy without lifting a finger. Over the weekend, we were thankfully given a chance to take a break from busy renovation works and school life, not to slack in front of the TV, but to catch the return of The Three Little Pigs by SRT’s The Little Company. If you have not already known, The Three Little Pigs came back to Singapore after having huffed and puffed around the world (in various languages) at major cities in USA, Australia, UK and China.
Since I already maximized my brain cells over everything at my new house, I took this opportunity to request Jiejie to do the review on my behalf and she gamely chose to review the musical over her past year papers. Smart one! (Oops, I mean myself. Hahahhah!)
I found that the various book reviews she has done for Times Bookstores Junior Book Review Club have given her some warming up to writing tasks at home. She usually does not like to write but can do reading marathon. We share the kids’ book reviews at our Instagram account @sayshappymums. I encouraged her to write a simple one with the hope of getting a chance to catch Charlotte’s Web in Oct ’16 if she writes properly. And so here, a very simple write-up from a 9-year old piglet’s point of view.
Yesterday, I went to watch The Three Little Pigs with my mother and brother. It was held at the KC Arts Centre – Home of SRT. When we entered the theatre, I was excited but not for the first time as i had already watched it for a few times. We were the first few to get into the theatre.
The show started on time and it was more interesting than the last one I watched. My most favourite part was when the wolf jumped into the hot pot of stew and did not listen to the pigs warnings and ended his own life.
At the end of the show, I felt very happy because it was an enjoyable musical. I learnt that as a family, we must always stick together and help one another.
Everyone should go and watch it as it is a lot of fun. It will continue until 16 Sep 2016. Be sure to watch it!
Thinking back to 2012 way before we started our blog, we first caught The Three Little Pigs and were already deeply captivated by the endearing “tails” with comical acts and hilarious lines. When the musical was adapted into Mandarin version a year later, we wasted no time in booking our tickets. Once again, we were not disappointed. I remember the Mandarin version was quite difficult to understand for my then 6 and 4 year olds. They nevertheless stayed entertained to the lively music and rolled through the musical together with the piglets without once complaining that the performance was in Mandarin.
This year, The Three Little Pigs returns with three superstar piglets – Cha, Siu and Bao, their devoted single-parent Mum, and the Big Bad Wolf who is just a little bit misunderstood.
The amazingly funny lyrics, affectionate use of Singlish and catchy tunes in this musical appeals to everybody from 3 to 100 years old. I personally loved Big Bad Wolf’s performance (by Ivan Chan) tremendously. The audience engagement with Wolf was magical and super fun! Ivan really played his part of the bad wolf very well. Children went howling mad over the wolf’s huff and puff, chased the piglets around and finally, dropping down the chimney into the boiling pot.
Like what Jiejie has mentioned, don’t miss this! The show runs until the end of Term 3 school holidays so there’s no excuse to miss it!
