Adventures In Storyland is Wild Rice Academy’s weekly drama programme for 5 to 8-year-olds that will give children the gift of stories and story-telling. Each programme features a mix of story-telling, drama skills and role-playing that will engage your child’s creativity, imagination and empathy.

For Ages 9-12: Acts of Imagination

Making theatre is a thrilling adventure that gives us new ways in which to think and talk about the world. In Acts of Imagination, children aged 9 to 12 learn to make and perform theatre under the guidance of industry professionals. Each programme will focus on a set of skills comprising a mix of acting, expression and scene creation that will stretch your child’s creativity, empathy and reflective thinking. The programme will culminate in a showcase for parents and invited guests.

#FeelingsToTheMax

#FeelingsToTheMax is an educational video series that helps children aged 5 to 12 think and talk about social issues in Singapore in fun and simple ways. Through a unique blend of filmed theatre and puppetry, Max – a homegrown puppet – empowers children to explore and better understand the world around them, with the help of their parents and teachers.

First Stage

First Stage is an intensive programme that provides theatre training and performance opportunities for children from the ages of 5 to 12. Our participants receive coaching throughout their first performing experiences on the professional stage. The programme aims to train young aspiring performers in performance skills and techniques, even as they work alongside Singapore’s finest actors and theatre-makers. Most importantly, the programme inspires joy, confidence and the love of performing on stage.

Since the inception of our First Stage programme in 2003, more than 150 children have joined us on stage. Collectively, they have performed to more than 166,000 people.
