HERE'S WHAT YOU CAN LOOK FORWARD TO IN 2017!
LA CAGE AUX FOLLES (19 Apr - 13 May): First staged in 2012 to rave reviews and standing ovations, we are excited to re-imagine and present this award-winning musical at the Victoria Theatre. Directed by Glen Goei, La Cage Aux Folles is a touching tale of one family’s struggle to stay together, stay fabulous and, above all else, stay true to themselves.
BOEING BOEING (23 Jun - 22 Jul): One of W!LD RICE’s greatest hits, this classic comedy will be flying back on stage in June 2017. This brand-new revival will be directed by Pam Oei, one of our original stewardesses now taking over the cockpit as our pilot!
GRANDMOTHER TONGUE (28 Sept - 21 Oct): A sold-out smash at the 2016 Singapore Theatre Festival, Thomas Lim’s funny, insightful play explores identity and language through a young man’s struggles to connect with his 84-year-old Teochew-speaking grandmother.
MAMA WHITE SNAKE (24 Nov - 16 Dec): Directed by Pam Oei and written by Alfian Sa’at, Mama White Snake is a playful re-telling of classic Chinese folk tale Madam White Snake. A young man suffers an identity crisis when he discovers that his mother and her best friend are really the magical White Snake and Green Snake of legend. Long-time collaborators and best friends Glen Goei and Ivan Heng will play the celestial sisters in this funny and moving musical about what it means to raise a child and what makes a family.
YOUNG & W!LD (15 - 19 Feb): The fourth cohort of W!LD RICE’s youth development division will be presenting their final two showcases next year, with original work Crossings taking centre stage in February 2017.
SEE YOU AT THE THEATRE!
