This holiday season, W!LD RICE brings you its heartwarming, hilarious take on Charles Dickens’ classic tale about love, compassion and the spirit of giving!
S K Loo’s All-In-One app has made him the richest businessman in town. To him, only money matters. Kindness? Forget it. Generosity? Never heard of it. And Christmas? #BAHHUMBUG!
He’s determined to spend Christmas as he always has – holed up in his penthouse, dreaming of hostile takeovers and retrenching staff.
But this Christmas is going to be very different. Three very unexpected spirits appear to scare the Scrooge out of S K Loo.
Will he survive being haunted by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-To-Be? Can the three spirits withstand his acid tongue and icy meanness? And can the true meaning of Christmas thaw his frozen heart?
Directed by Hossan Leong, the year’s most eagerly anticipated musical extravaganza features a cheeky script by Jonathan Lim and a magical score by Elaine Chan. As the miserly S K Loo, Sebastian Tan (a.k.a. Broadway Beng) leads a stellar cast that includes Siti Khalijah Zainal, Audrey Luo, Candice de Rozario, Fauzie Laily and the fabulous First Stage Kids!
Don’t miss A $ingapore Carol – a brand-new musical for the entire family about the true spirit(s) of Christmas!
About W!LD RICE Pantomime
In 2003, W!LD RICE decided to bring the traditional British pantomime to the Singapore stage – with a local twist, of course!
Together with Singapore’s relentlessly creative and productive artists and theatre-makers, we have now created 12 original pantomimes.
Since it all began 14 years ago, the W!LD RICE pantomime has entertained more than 210,000 people of all ages and from all walks of life, and it has become one of most eagerly anticipated events of the holiday season and the Singapore theatre calendar!
