{Review} Ahoy Mateys! It’s Pirates’ Treasure at SRT’s Treasure Island

Wey had been eagerly waiting to watch Singapore Repertory Theatre‘s year end blockbuster Treasure Island showing at the DBS Arts Centre from 30 October to 29 November 2015. Read our earlier pre-show post.

Seeing his excitement, I got him the classic story by Robert Louis Stevenson (Usborne Young Reading, adapted version) available at MPH. Reading the book made him even more excited to catch the play. I always love that theatre encourages my little one to pick up either a brand new book or a well loved one to read before the play.

Finally reading independently and enjoying a new story, Treasure Island, on his own.

As I’ve shared before, one of the reasons why I love Children’s theatre is the opportunity to grow Wey’s love for books. I like that after enjoying the book, he gets to see the story come to live on stage, firing his imagination. Wey likes to point out to me all the parts of the play that are different from the book that he’s read, and how they’ve changed it.

A week ago, we also had the rare opportunity to catch a sneak peep visit to the backstage of the Treasure Island production. SRT kindly showed us the costumes and props which were still being made and it was a visual treat for the curious little ones who kept asking who was wearing what!

SRT Treasure Island

Guessing whose costumes are they? Now we know the blue coat was for Captain Smollett and the moss green one will be worn by Long John Silver! Now look at them pirate swords!!!

Even as the cast was deep in rehearsal, without the makeup, costumes or stage props, they kept us riveted with their beautiful singing and dramatic expression. Wey was really reluctant to leave that day and he couldn’t wait to catch the show… quite frankly, he was not alone, even mummy couldn’t wait too! hehee… 🙂

One week is a long wait (for a child) and the anticipation and excitement grew as Saturday finally drew near! The wait was worthwhile and we were not disappointed at all.  SRT’s Treasure Island is definitely a show not to be missed, plus it’s an opportunity to get the kids to pick up a classic storybook to read, so do book your tickets at SISTIC early to avoid disappointment. More show information at the end of post.

While Mummy smiles, the little one is trying his best to make a pirate’s angry face! Arggh!

SRT’s adaptation of the popular novel gives the time loved story of Treasure Island, a new twist that’s both refreshing and heart-warming. As with the original story, the play follows the adventure of Jim Hawkins (Ann Lek), a lion-hearted 13-year-old (heroine) who yearns for a pirate’s adventure amidst her mundane life running her family inn. She dreams of exploring like her late father. When Billy Bones appears at Benbow Inn and is cursed with a sudden pirate’s death, Jim finds herself with a Treasure Map!

Squire Trelawny and Captain Smollett examining the treasure map with young Jim! Just look at their faces! haha!

The little ones were captivated by the intrigue as the plot developed with the expected pirates’ betrayal in the bid to get hold of the map and win the treasure! I could see Wey’s intent expression as he watched every movement on stage even as he squealed in delight at familiar parts of the story.

Treasure Island

At last on board the Hispaniola in search of adventure and Captain Flint’s Treasure Island.

With the clever use of a mix of puppetry, energetic expression and song plus really amazingly beautiful sets, this exciting tale of pirates and hidden treasure got the full attention of the entire audience both young and old, right from the very start.

The cast took what could have been a scary dark story and made it more light-hearted for the children with the lively songs and humour. I for one totally loved Ben Gunn (played by Kimberly Chan) with her Jamaican accent and funny songs, injecting lots of laughter during the play. We last saw Kimberly in SRT’s The Three Billy Goat’s Gruff as Baby and we’re still loving her in Treasure Island as she brilliantly plays her multiple roles as Ben Gunn, Jim’s Mum and nasty Pirate Hands, all effortlessly.

Ben Gunn and her coconut friends inject fun and cheer in Treasure Island

My favourite part of the play must have been when Long John Silver led the pirates to mutiny on board the Hispaniola in order to snatch the treasure map from Squire Trelawny. The furore of of the mutiny left us all on an almost unbearable cliff-hanger as Act One closed for the interval.

The musical is split into two Acts of approximately 75 enjoyable minutes in total plus a 15 minute interval. I did  wish that the interval was not quite so long as the kids got really fidgety waiting for Act Two. If you’re not one to like to leave your seats during the break, do bring along something to occupy the kids or you could work on the prepared activities in the Programme booklets provided. I was thankful that I had a book in the bag to keep Wey from repeatedly asking when was the show starting again! hahah…. Phew!

Will it be the end of Jim under the treacherous hands of Long John Silver and his dreadful greedy pirates? Or will she find a way to turn the tide and bring home a more important treasure than the pieces of eight that everyone is after?

As expected, my little one’s absolute favourite part was the swashbuckling action when the pirates converged onto Jim, the Squire and Captain Smollett at the Treasure Cave. Ooo!! Be prepared for some exhilarating exciting action that will keep you at the edge of your seats. Hahha…

The musical has a slightly different twist but I enjoyed SRT’s happy ending because it draws the young audience to value friendship more than material treasures. A reminder for adults and a teachable moment for the little ones to understand that human relationships are the real treasure, far more valuable than monetary treasures. Watch the play to find out how it ends!

My little Mateys (and Me) gave our two thumbs up for this really exhilarating play. I promise it’s a delightful quality production that even parents will enjoy every moment of! Days after watching it, I still find myself humming “Yo-ho-ho and a Bottle of Rum“. Kids 5 years and above will be captivated by the swashbuckling action and plot intrigue. Younger ones will still enjoy the music and songs but may have some difficulty understanding the dialogue. Treasure Island runs till the 29 November, you’ll have only another 3 weekends to catch it!

{Review} SRT’s Hello Goodbye| Is It Really Happily Ever After?

Hello Goodbye SRT

The hubs and I always enjoy going out to the theatre on our rare date nights these days. Theatre nights out have always been our thing even before we had Wey… and I’m so glad that we still get the chance to go now. It also helps that my mum is always available to help watch Wey when we are out.

Have you been out recently just the two of you sans kids? Once in a while, it helps to get a breather from the kids, to get some ‘we-time’ in, so that neither spouse loses touch with each other ~ that’s the key to all healthy loving relationships, won’t you agree? And I relish the chance to dress up a little once in a while since I’m a Stay at Home Mum hahaha!!

We really enjoyed the preview night of SRT’s Hello Goodbye last night especially since it was the eve of the hubby’s birthday too, so we got to celebrate, Super Yay! Hello Goodbye is a fun romantic comedy play – quite adult if I may add, so it’s perfect for a couple’s nights out.

Juliet (DENISE TAN) arrives at her new apartment only to find it already occupied by Alex (SHANE MARDJUKI) who insists that the apartment is rightfully his. The two continue to spar with words as they learn more about each other. One is a collector of things (every single McDonald’s toy there has ever been, he’s got it!), while another is in a situation with no friend or boyfriend to turn to because of a careless sex-capade with a good friend’s/roommate’s Groom/boyfriend’s BFF on their wedding day! haha! Ok, do I hear anyone’s mind-blowing yet?

Hello Goodbye SRT

I cannot even begin to count the number of times the audience burst into laughter at the rather amusing banter between the two. The humour was witty and we laughed out loud quite, ever so often, on the clever play on words.

This was maybe my first time watching Shane Mardjuki on stage or perhaps not, but he certainly got my interest and attention from the start to end. Shane made Alex seem familiar somehow, like a person you and I would know.

Alex, with his phobias and fears, is the quiet introvert with the almost-geekish charm that … Erhem… “gives attention to details” in the bedroom!! Hahaa… Alex also seems to know a lot about everything eg. waste disposals, thermostats, dinosaurs etc and makes it a point to “just let you know how it works”. Juliet calls him,”The Rain Man” (Dustin Hoffman) and quite out rightly bullies him in Act One.

Hello Goodbye

Juliet threatening to smash the little T-Rex (Stegosaurus) McDonald’s toy that Alex so desperately wants to add to his collection, if he doesn’t agree to move out of ‘her’ apartment.

I was very excited to get a chance to watch Denise Tan again (my favourite Dim Sum Dolly and onstage actress) and I was not disappointed. Denise plays the impetuous only child Juliet with such ease and it’s always so fun to watch her. Despite her unreasonable empty threatening and bullying tactics in Act One, it is hard to dislike Juliet because of Denise! haha… The audience roared each time she said she would squash Alex if he didn’t move out of her apartment immediately. I laughed so much throughout the night and I know everyone else did too!

Says Alex, “Only children think the world revolves around them and when it doesn’t they behave badly.” “You want kids? Is that wise for you to breed?” Oops! Alex calls her the “Abandoned, only child, frustrated chef, wage slave!” haha but still she’s lovable! Plus, I really loved the cooking scene! And yes! It was real cooking, we smelled those yummy eggs Juliet cooked that Alex devoured in minutes! LOL!

Sure, it’s also quite crazy that after barely 20minutes of fighting over the apartment and who gets which room, the two somehow found each other attractive enough to well.. yeah… start kissing…. and…. Curtain closes 🙂 hahaa…

Hello Goodbye

Ooolala! Kissing!

What really made this play good was Act Two!

Fast forward 10 years later after the closing scene, we see quite a different picture. Love has given way to hostility as the couple are about to go their separate ways. Not quite the happily ever after that one would expect in a romantic comedy… I was completely caught off guard!!

I really loved the range of emotions explored as the two go through dividing up things. Each item ends up telling us a story of the last 10 years of marriage they’ve had before arriving at this moment of an ‘amicable’ split. From happy memories of fondness that grew into simply wanting more, leading to deep resentments and bittersweet memories, Act Two gets you charged up with situations that most couples may find familiar. The audience is drawn to find out why did it all break down in the end whilst sensing that the two still love each other deeply.

Hello Goodbye

Is it really Goodbye? *heart-breaking*

As the audience watched the state of Alex’s and Juliet’s marriage unfold on stage, the play quite daringly challenges the audience about their own love relationship. It is not embarrassed to ask you the honest question about your own romance – Is it really happily ever after or is it irreconcilable differences?? Where does one go from there? Is love really enough if both want different things in life? Or do you just continue driving each other insane?

I found myself tearing and yet still smiling and clinging on to that small glimmer of hope that Alex and Juliet may yet find the love again somehow. I shall not say what happens because you should really go to the play to see what happens and be surprised and touched by Love again. Self-sacrificing true Love that’s more important than any other thing one can possess on earth.

Hello Goodbye could have become too much heavy material for a good date night, but it didn’t. It stayed funny and heart warming till the end, so that your romantic date didn’t become a disaster but a thoughtful touching one that made you hold hands with your partner more that evening. I’ve been married for over 15 years now and we’re way passed the sparks but I am reminded again to always be thankful for the love from my husband whose been my steadfast pillar of strength. No new love could hope to substitute the years we’ve gone through together building a life together and I look forward to many more blessed years together.

So, if you must hear me say it, I had a really good time at Hello Goodbye and I’m quite sure the 2 couples that won our giveaway contest would have had fun too! Hello Goodbye is a great show to watch together with your significant other, it’s funny yet touchingly thoughtful. Don’t miss this great opportunity to renew your romance in September and have a great night out. Do get your tickets now at SISTIC, good seats still available! More ticketing details after the post below.

I also had the rare opportunity to interview Denise Tan, so watch for that post coming up real soon! 🙂

And look who I met at the preview show of Hello Goodbye! Adrian Pang who recently played the late Mr Lee Kuan Yew in The LKY Musical was on a date night with his wife too and I managed to steal a photo with him! hehe… Can’t wait for The LKY Musical to return to stage again (read our review and look out for when it comes back again by popular demand).

{Review + GIVEAWAY} Rock N Troll with SRT’s The Three Billy Goats Gruff

So we got trippin’ and trappin’ early to the DBS Arts Centre on Saturday and were all set to catch SRT’s The Three Billy Goats Gruff, the latest and final addition to the trio series by George Stiles and Anthony Drewe.  Having had a preview of part of the rehearsal, we could not wait to come back to watch this brand new production!

SRT's The Three Billy Goats Gruff

The 3 Happy Kids eager to watch The Three Billy Goats Gruff!! haha!

As we entered the theatre, Wey exclaimed, “Hey Mama, look it’s the same as what we saw last week!” He was of course referring to the miniature mock-up of the stage set that Director Anthony Drewe had so kindly (and bravely, might I add) shown the kids during our short preview session.

SRT's The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Director Anthony Dewes brought us behind the scenes. Here, showing us the mock-up stage design before building the the actual set! Look at those inquisitive little people surrounding him!

Here before us, was the life size set and Wey was undoubtedly impressed and excited and I was amazed too! It was beautiful and we noticed the stones had ears, noses and faces too! Can you spot them? Find out why they are there, when you watch it 🙂

SRT's The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Is the grass really greener on the other side of the bridge? Well, SRT’s The Three Billy Goats Gruff – Baby, Middle and Big, certainly think so! And so, begins their daredevil efforts to cross the bridge to greener pastures, without being eaten by the dreadful Troll of course!

SRT's The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Now who would put up such a sign anyway? hmm…

As the theatre lights dimmed and the catchy music came on, I could almost hear the squeals of delight of the children as The Three Billy Goats Gruff- Baby, Medium and Big made their appearance.

SRT's The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Wey’s favourite was Big… Seen here is Medium, Big and Baby (Left to Right).

Oh how the three entertained everyone with their energetic singing and rapping, “We’re Big, Medium and Baby, large, medium and small… all for one and one for all… with horns that make us look tall! … We’re the Billy Goats, We’re the Billy Goats, We’re the Billy Goats Gruff!” By the end of their lively rendition, my son was cheering wildly for them!

Wey’s favourite was Big (Benjamin Wong) because “he’s so strong and big!” I suspect it was also because Big turns out later to be the hero of the show and finally thinks of a way to outwit the rather dim-witted Troll as he stands up bravely against him.

Adding quite some colour to the play was the goats’ rather silly, rather forgetful, rather pink, rather frilly owner caretaker, Little Bo-Frilly (Cheryl Tan). Tan’s portrayal was slapstick funny and the young ones giggled and laughed at her silliness.

SRT's The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Can you guess already why she’s called Little Bo Frilly? LOL!

So what’s under the Bridge that separates the goats from those awesome ‘greener’ pastures? A bowl? A bread roll? haha… nope, it’s the greedy dreadful Troll who loves to eat goats (not kids! Oh really! haha)!

SRT's The Three Billy Goats Gruff

I was excited to see the grumpy old Troll at last! haha!

The appearance of the Troll (Benjamin Chow, who also plays Frilly’s Daddy, Mr Bo), brought a tensed moment for some but everyone soon forgot any fears they had and remained enthralled by the story and the catchy music. We laughed at his songs that included a very yummy gourmet menu of Soup Kambing! hahaa… In fact, I’d picked the Troll as my favourite character in the story and felt almost sad when he was outsmarted in the end.

Now, did I mention before that the songs were catchy and fun and filled with country rock goodness? Well, our trio K, Wey and R were having a great time ‘rocking and trolling’ to the beat of the music in between lots of giggles and laughter. Our favourites were definitely the opening number “We’re Big, Middle and Baby” and “The Grass is Always Greener on the Other Side of the Fence”.

SRT's The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Will Baby, Middle and Big escape the dreadful Troll? And if they do, what will they find once they cross over the bridge? Find out how the Goats outsmart the Troll and make it safe for everyone to use the bridge forever… but then maybe they won’t need to use the bridge in the end because there’s nowhere quite like home and yeah… the grass is NOT always greener on the other side 🙂

SRT's The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Aside from all the singing, laughter and fun, I think the play brought home the point that we need to be contented with what we have. In this age of abundance, how often have we still continued to crave for more and wanting things that others have? I thought it was a very timely reminder for the adults and a great teachable moment for us to impart the values of being contented to the young ones.

So have fun trippin’ n trappin’ to the DBS Arts Centre to watch this cleverly fun musical that will have your whole family laughing out loud. We sure had our share of giggles and laughter today!

Little R’s artist’s impression after watching the play today … Shows you how much he must have loved it! Best review ever! 🙂

SRT The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Meet “Baby”, “Middle” and “Big”, the Three Billy Goats Gruff with their forgetful almost silly caretaker, Little Bo-Frilly as they look for grass that always seems greener on the other side, especially now that they are in the middle of a dreadful drought! Together, the gang decide to cross the bridge to the other side of the valley, where lush green grass awaits. Yummy!!!

But wait! Hold on a minute! Below the bridge lives a frightening troll that (gulp!) loves to feast on goats (not kids! Phew! no worries haha)… Can they outsmart the monstrous greedy troll?

We caught a sneak preview of part of the rehearsal last Friday and we know it’s going to be a roar with both the kids and parents! The songs were catchy and fun and little Wey was ‘rocking and trolling’ to the beat of the music in between bouts of laughter.

SRT The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Meet Baby, Middle and Big with Little Bo-Frilly!

We are sure that this brand new production, the third and final instalment of its Trio series featuring music and lyrics by the Laurence Olivier award-winning West-End musical theatre song writing duo George Stiles and Anthony Drewe (Honk! and Mary Poppins), is going to be yet another hit musical production not to be missed!!!
