Singapore Repertory Theatre’s The Little Company presents
A musical for the whole family this festive season
Singapore Repertory Theatre’s (SRT) The Little Company (TLC) is pleased to announce their end-of-year musical for the whole family, Junior Claus, from 31st October to 14th December 2014.
Junior Claus (Dwayne Tan) is the rebellious heir to an immense empire in the North Pole, where elves busily prepare for the biggest day of the year – Christmas. When Santa (Benjamin Chow) falls into a deep sleep because the Belief-o-Meter falls to a dangerously low level, Grumpo the greedy elf (Timothy Wan) takes control of Santa’s workshop and attempts to ruin the Yuletide season forever. Junior, alongside his friends Chipper the elf (Seong Hui Xuan) and Pengy the penguin, join forces to prevent this disastrous outcome.
Kate Golledge, who directed The Little Company’s previous plays The Nightingale, Red Riding Hood and Fantastic Mr. Fox, returns to direct this Christmas time treat. “I’m really excited to be working with the most incredible cast and creative team,” she says. “We can’t wait to get into the festive mood.”
Written by the amazing team of Christopher Dimond and Michael Kooman, and with fabulous choreography by Ashley Nottingham (Red Riding Hood), this musical emphasises the importance of cherishing family and friends instead of material possessions. With upbeat tunes and engaging dialogue, Junior Claus will warm the hearts of audiences of all ages.
During the same period, SRT also offer week-long holiday programmes for our young patrons. Please see www.srt.com.sg for more info.
