Closing this year’s wonderful 15th Anniversary Celebrations, I Theatre presents a reworked version from their 2000 production of The Magic Paintbrush from 27 October to 12 November 2016 at the Drama Centre Theatre.
The Magic Paintbrush is a musical treat just right for the entire family and a great end of term, after exams treat! Based on a well-known Chinese folk tale, I Theatre’s highly talented cast of established local actors bring to life an amazing magical story.
Toni Lee, a youngster from present-day Singapore is struggling with the pressures and stress of schoolwork and parental expectations. With an accidental wish, Toni quite unexpectedly meets a Magical Paintbrush, and is transported back in time to a Southern Province of China, where, in a series of magical adventures, Ma Liang’s story unfolds.
Meet the tuneful Phoenix who guides and helps Ma Liang with his quest. Watch out for the comical Palace Guards, Sotong and Shrimp, as they try to capture Ma Liang for the cruel, greedy Emperor and his wicked schemes!
Through the fun and laughter, a clear and strong moral message about the value of creativity, friendship, and the dangers of using, or abusing power is presented in this magical, musical family show. Expect madcap characters, lively memorable music, comedy to intrigue your little ones at The Magic Paintbrush .
We’re really excited to watch this ‘new’ production which promises marvellous music, puppets and lively action against a witty script!
