Magic beans

Dear friends and W!LD RICE Angels,

It's hard to believe, but opening night is almost upon us. Tomorrow, our re-imagined production of Jack & The Bean-Sprout! will take to the Drama Centre stage. For many days (and nights!), we've been working incredibly hard to get everything ready for the show. There is still much to be done. But we trust that, just like wishing on a handful of Jack's magic beans, the collective passion and love of our Company – combined with the energy and enthusiasm of our audiences to come – will bring it all together in the end.

In this issue, we chat with our lead actor, Caleb Goh, about returning to his roots (taugeh roots, of course!). Elaine Chan, our fearless musical director, talks us through the joys and challenges of composing a pantomime score, and not one but two Ians – Messrs Bailie and Lee – tell us about designing a set and performing in the National Day Parade respectively. We look forward to seeing you at the theatre!

My best,

Hot Off The Press!


Caleb Goh has been performing in musicals in America for years - but has never been in a pantomime. He tells us about coming home to Singapore and embracing his (taugeh) roots to play the title character in Jack & The Bean-Sprout!. Read more...
