ABOUT THE W!LD RICE PANTOMIME
Once a year, the best of Singapore’s theatre artistes come together to celebrate the festive season by taking everyone’s favourite fairy tales and giving them an imaginative local twist – just to bring laughter and the magic of theatre to audiences from five to eighty-five.
The W!LD RICE Pantomime brings together all the elements of a great family entertainment – slapstick comedy, satire, political incorrectness, snazzy songs, toe-tapping dance routines, cross-dressing, fabulous costumes and spectacular sets, audience participation and a Good versus Evil story that is strong on romance and adventure.
Through First Stage, W!LD RICE also develops the talents of children from the ages of 5 to 16, many of whom take their first steps on the Singapore stage.
Beauty & The Beast (2009), Snow White & the Seven Dwarfs (2008), Jack & The Bean-Sprout! (2006), Oi! Sleeping Beauty!! (2005), Aladdin (2004) and Cinderel-LAH! (2003) have tickled and touched an audience of over 70,000. Today, the W!LD RICE Pantomime has become the MUST-SEE musical of the holiday season, and the best possible way to round up the busy year!
