Wild Rice @ Funan

On your marks… get set… GO! Celebrate the Lunar New Year with your loved ones at The Amazing Celestial Race – a rambunctious musical inspired by the legendary competition at the heart of the Chinese Zodiac!

Join all the animals in the Heavenly Kingdom as they get fighting fit to take part in the big race hosted by the Jade Emperor.

To make it across the finish line, contestants must survive diabolical detours, a raging river… and one another.

Every animal is raring to go, and ready to fight until the bitter end.

Because this is no ordinary race. It’s a chance for everlasting glory – the opportunity to become a legend.

Only 12 coveted prizes are up for grabs.

And only one animal will emerge the ultimate champion.

Back by popular demand following its sold-out run last year, The Amazing Celestial Race is directed with joyous humour by Glen Goei. Featuring a wickedly funny script by Dwayne Lau and heartwarming original songs by Julian Wong, this hilarious musical comedy is perfect for anyone from the ages of 5 to 95!

Duration: approximately 1 hour 15 minutes (with no interval)

Wild Rice is proud to be a venue for people from all walks of life. For our neuro-diverse audiences, feel free to download our visual story to prepare you for The Amazing Celestial Race.
