W!LD TIMES

|| September 2014 || Issue No. 18

Join us on our Journey to the W!LD West!

Dear friends and W!LD RICE Angels,

Our premises in Little India are a positively buzzing hive of excitement and activity. There's nothing quite like the thrill that comes from putting a new show together. Actors from Singapore and Malaysia have been trading stories, energy and historical anecdotes in our workshops for next year's Hotel. Rehearsals are ramping up for our annual Rice Ball and, of course, it's full steam ahead for Monkey Goes West, which we hope will enchant audiences – everyone from the ages of 8 to 80! – at the Victoria Theatre this holiday season.

In this issue, we take you behind the scenes of Monkey Goes West in our interviews with playwright Alfian Sa'at and costume designers Saksit Pisalasupongs and Phisit Jongnarangsin of the Tube Gallery. We also give you a sneak peek at our FIRST STAGE! Kids in action as they gear up for the pantomime. We take a moment to reflect on Little Riots and Other Stories, the successful first showcase of our young & W!LD ensemble. One talented member of the troupe, Faith Sim, shares what she learnt while working on Little Riots. There are also a host of exciting upcoming events we hope you'll put on your calendar: a master class with West End star Ria Jones, for instance, and our auditions for next year's pantomime, The Emperor's New Clothes.

Enjoy W!LD TIMES, and we'll see you very soon at the theatre!

My best,
Ivan
