Three meaningful stories will be presented – The Very Hungry Caterpillar follows the adventures of a tiny and hungry caterpillar and its eventual metamorphosis into a beautiful butterfly, what does it chomp along the way? Little Cloud is a charming little tale of how it decides to stray away from his fellow mates to go on an adventure that finds him morphing into various objects such as a sheep, clown and even a shark! And finally, in The Mixed Up Chameleon, toddlers will be able to associate colours and meanings to objects through the reptile who eventually embraces his uniqueness after an identity crisis happens. Mermaid Theatre’s version mirrors the book’s stunning illustrations drawn in thick, brilliant brushstrokes of blues, greens and reds.

These beautifully-made lanterns are made by expert craftsmen from China and a nostalgic reminder of the colourful cellophane paper lanterns that were made in the past.

The lanterns are traditionally made by wrapping cellophane paper tightly over a wire frame or bamboo strips into various animal shapes such as rabbits, dragons, roosters and fishes.

For this year’s Mid-Autumn Festival, we hope to evoke fond memories for Singaporeans by recreating Singapore’s traditional lanterns popular in the 60s to 80s, and give overseas visitors a wonderful glimpse of our traditional lanterns commonly seen in the past during the Mid-Autumn Festival. The Festival is also a time of family togetherness. To enrich our line-up of family-oriented activities, we will be organising the inaugural Mid-Autumn Family Fest @ Chinatown to give families a fun and meaningful way to celebrate the festival together and to pass down their customs and traditions”.
