Wild Rice @ Funan

“Toto, I’ve a feeling we’re not in Yishun anymore.”

If there’s one place in Singapore where freaky things can happen, it’s Yishun. That’s how Dorothy finds herself swept up by a cyclone one day and transported to the magical land of Oz, where the Munchkins live the high life in the East and the Winkies toil and labour in the West under the tyrannical rule of the Wicked Witch.

To find her way back, Dorothy needs to seek an audience with the mysterious Wizard of Oz. Along the way, she gets help from a Hokkien-speaking Scarecrow, a Tin Man with a big axe and even bigger vocabulary, and a sensitive, crochet-loving Lion.

But what dangers lie ahead in this strange world that sometimes reminds Dorothy so much of Singapore? And will brains, heart and courage be enough to get her home?

In this visionary reimagining of L. Frank Baum’s beloved children’s book, award-winning playwright Alfian Sa’at serves up a story full of heart, humour and home truths that will delight everyone from the young to the young at heart. Directed with marvellous flair by Ivan Heng and packed with Yellow Brick Road-trip-friendly tunes by Elaine Chan, The Wizard of Oz is fabulous fun for the whole family. Don’t miss this joyous new musical that will send you and your loved ones singing and dancing all the way home!

Duration: approximately 2 hours 30 minutes (with 20 minutes intermission)
Recommended for patrons aged 4 and above
