Coming Soon: Hansel & Gretel

November 19, 2012

Event: “Hansel & Gretel” by W!ld Rice
Venue: Drama Centre Theatre
Run: 22nd Nov – 15th Dec 2012

Opens This Week!

W!ld Rice returns with the 9th edition of its annual year-end Christmas pantomime in the form of the Brothers Grimm fairy tale “Hansel & Gretel”, which opens this Thursday at the Drama Centre Theatre.

The star-studded cast includes Dwayne Tan as “Hansel”, Denise Tan as “Gretel”, Sebastian Tan as “The Witch” (aka “The Chef”), Siti Khalijah as “Vilma the Maid” and “Nicki Minah”, Dwayne Lau as the Father of Hansel and Gretel, Vernetta Lopez as “Cassandra the Evil Stepmother”, and so on.

The musical is directed by Dim Sum Dolly Pam Oei who makes her professional directorial debut, while Rotjana Patikarapong (Oh) choreographs and Joel Nah musical directs.

I am particularly looking forward to the original songs composed by Elaine Chan (who has done music for a number of the past pantomimes), as well as the lyrics by Alfian Sa’at, who is also responsible for the book.

Pantomimes with fully original songs tend to excite me the most, and I’m most certainly looking forward to catching this one.

There aren’t many musicals left for the year, so if you’re looking for the perfect musical to commemorate the year-end season, then W!ld Rice’s “Hansel & Gretel” is definitely it.

Go grab your goodies from SISTIC before they run out!
