We kind of miss theatre-going with the kids after many months of busy days with our respective house-renovation, moving, then school. The kids have been repeatedly asking for some edutainment. The last one we attended was the amazingly impressive season finale – I Theatre’s The Magic Paintbrush which left us all awed and inspired by the talented uncle Brian (Seward).
Both Audrey and I love musicals since young and we love how I Theatre shows engage the kids, as well as the adults. It is definitely not easy to edutain an audience with a large age differences at the same time even though the performances are primarily targeted at the children. We always leave the theatre with meaningful conversations with the kids after the bonding over a staged musical.
In case you don’t know who the sparkle behind I Theatre shows is, it is Brian Seward, a veteran Artistic Director who has been with I Theatre for more than a decade. Just last month, Brian marked his 16th Anniversary with I Theatre. We also found out that before coming to Singapore, he taught Drama in schools. This means that he has dedicated a large part of his life to children theatre and arts.
Come 27 April to 14 May 2017, join us at the Drama Centre Theatre, NLB, for an extravaganza of children theatrical favourites to the tunes of The Goose That Laid the Golden Eggs, and her greedy owner; The Little Red Hen, with bread to bake, but lazy friends; and Chicken-Licken – with that scary acorn!
This talkative trio of feathered friends will sing, dance, show and tell you their tales – and don’t be surprised if they share some valuable wisdom and backstage secrets on the way.
A brand new, interactive, fun, musical production presented in quite an unusual way. This time, we’ll get to look at the world of the Theatre Stage from the inside out and discover valuable secrets of how a Musical is made! Poultry Tales looks set to be a visual and sensory treat for the whole family.
The play will explore key themes of:
- Rewards for hard work,
- Knowing who to trust,
- Disbelieving rumours,
- The Dangers of Avarice
- The dangers of judging others
- How a theatre play is staged, and the roles of backstage crew.
Guaranteed to engage young and old alike, specially designed with excitement, humour and learning points coming thick and fast! We are really excited and has marked our calendar for the show. Tickets can be purchased at SISTIC Website if your family love theatre-going learning journeys like ours. Stay tuned to us, for we have a surprise coming up very soon!
