On Monday, the W!LD RICE team embarked on our Journey To The West – literally and figuratively! Come behind the scenes with the cast and crew of our upcoming year-end pantomime, Monkey Goes West, as they got into costume and character for a photoshoot at Mark Law Photography Studio in Pasir Panjang. (Eh, we really did go West, hor!)
Preparations for the photoshoot have been underway for months. After researching costume ideas for each character in the show, Saksit Pisalasupongs and Phisit Jongnarangsin of the Tube Gallery created bespoke costumes for every single member of our cast.
Ashley Lim, our hair maestro extraordinaire, has also been hard at work creating wigs and hairpieces for each character.
Getting into character can be a pain-staking process – as most actors can attest! It took hours of hard work by our team of make-up artists to transform our cast into the fantasy characters we all know and love so well from Journey Goes To The West.
Be sure to book your tickets for Monkey Goes West at the Victoria Theatre, from 21 November – 13 December 2014!
