Forever Young (and W!LD!)

Dear friends and W!LD RICE Angels,

The way we progress, how we regard human rights in our society, is always driven by the young, who are not married to the prejudices of the past.

We've always believed in giving children and young people the gift of theatre. With empathy and conflict at the heart of every drama, it is an experience that has the potential to open their minds and hearts – whether they're watching a show, or being a part of one. And so, it gives me great pleasure to shine a spotlight this month on our emerging talents in young & W!LD. This is a group of 16 talented, passionate young individuals who not only love performing, but adore making theatre. For the past few months, they have been working incredibly hard, under the stewardship of their programme directors Rodney Oliveiro and Serena Ho, on their upcoming showcase, Little Riots and Other Stories. We can't wait for you to see what they've created!

Also in this issue: we are very proud and excited to invite West End diva Ria Jones back to Singapore to perform in Night Safari, our annual RICE BALL in October. She shares about her life experiences and the first time she properly met me and Glen, when we were dressed as orchids for Pink Dot. We also chat with Gabriel Lee, who helped us coordinate our charity ticket drive last year for the Down Syndrome Association of Singapore. Do get in touch with us if you'd like to come on board and help us give underprivileged children the gift of theatre today!

My best,
Ivan
