“Cinderel-LAH!” by Wild Rice is Back!

October 28, 2010

As part of W!ld Rice’s 10th Anniversary festivities, the company will be restaging their ever-popular pantomime “Cinderel-LAH!”.

“Cinderel-LAH!”, their first ever pantomime, was originally staged in 2003, and starred Emma Yong, Neo Swee Lin, Hossan Leong, Sheikh Haikel, Chua Enlai, Lim Kay Siu, and Karen Tan, amongst others.

This restaging retains a number of the original cast members, with a few new additions such as Sebastian Tan, Najip Ali and Gurmit Singh, and is directed by Ivan Heng, with book by Selena Tan and music by Elaine Chan.

“Cinderel-LAH!” still ranks as my favourite W!ld Rice pantomime of all-time, largely due to its excellent songs.

And thus, I am deeply looking forward to catching it again.

I honestly believe that this is composer Elaine Chan’s finest work amongst all her W!ld Rice works.

(I have the whole collection of W!ld Rice CD albums.)

It’s been 7 years and counting, and I’m still enchanted by lovely songs such as “A Waltz To Fall In Love With”, “When I’m Happy”, “What Good Is A Man?”, “Everybody Needs A Little Magic”, and “Around The World”.

I can’t think of any other W!ld Rice musical with as many songs that I loved as this one.

“Cinderel-LAH” runs at the Esplanade Theatre from 25th November onwards.

Be sure to get your tickets (here).

The only way you might be disappointed by this is if you don’t manage to get good seats.
