Coming Soon: Jack and the Bean-Sprout!

November 7, 2013

JackAndTheBeanSprout1Event: “Jack & the Bean-Sprout!” by W!ld Rice
Venue: Drama Centre Theatre
Run: 21st Nov – 14th Dec 2013

For the 10th edition of its annual year-end musical pantomime, W!ld Rice will be bringing back the lovable original musical “Jack & the Bean-Sprout!”, directed by Ivan Heng.

This musical was first staged at the same venue in 2006, although this upcoming iteration will be a brand-new production with book and lyrics both being rewritten by up-and-coming young playwright Joel Tan, with new original music by stalwart Elaine Chan.

It features Caleb Goh (“Asian Boys Vol. 1”) making his pantomime debut as the lead character Jack, together with Darius Tan playing his widowed mother.

Other familiar favourites include the inimitable Karen Tan and Siti Khalijah, as well as up to 40 child actors aged 4 to 12 as part of W!ld Rice’s FIRST STAGE! programme.

Being a big fan of musical theatre, I am particularly looking forward to this production so as to be able to hear the new original songs written by Elaine and Joel.

Past editions of W!ld Rice’s pantomimes have rarely failed to enthrall, and one has little reason to believe that things will be any different this time round.

Go get your tickets soon before they all sell out!

Play Duration: Approx. 2 hrs (with 15 mins intermission)
