Resorts World Sentosa (RWS) (圣淘沙名胜世界) unveils its latest end-of-year original production – Musical TARU (恐龙复活了) which will be showing at Resorts World™ Theatre from Friday, 7 December 2018 till Sunday, 13 January 2019!
Musical TARU took close to two years to create in South Korea and is dubbed as one of the most-loved family entertainment musicals in Korea, will take the stage at RWS with a localised Mandarin spin-off consisting of star-studded local and regional cast.
The story is about Nala, Paul and Albert were visiting the museum when a mysterious lunar eclipse occurs. Before they know it, the museum’s exhibits come alive and the fossil of a baby T-Rex named TARU is stolen! Teaming up with the newly animated exhibits, can our daring trio save baby TARU in time?
Audience can look forward to see a 2.5-metre tall T-Rex fossil life-sized dinosaur puppetry coming to live on stage. Discover the natural history museum’s latest attraction, a rare and fascinating pair of mother and child T-Rex fossils, be in awe and watch the magic of the museum comes alive as the musical reveals even more surprise with its resurrected residents like the Mummy, a suave sidekick of Cleopatra, Admiral Zheng He as they joined forces and travelled through familiar Singapore’s landmarks such as Bukit Timah Hill and Changi Point to recover baby T-Rex TARU’s stolen fossils.
The Singapore version of Musical TARU has assembled an accomplished local and regional cast as follows:
One of the main leads is Wong Jinglun (黄靖伦), famous for his participation in Singapore’s Project Superstar, and Taiwan’s One Million Star, where he was notably voted the most popular contestant of the show.
Accompanying him is Ling Xiao (凌霄), a local award-winning veteran singer who has released more than 100 albums to his credits and was crowned one of the Top Ten singers in both Singapore and Malaysia.
Adding female spunk to the cast is Freya Lim (林凡), a Taiwanese singer who was born in Taiwan with family lineage in Malaysia. Freya, also a multiple award-winning songbird, has released more than six albums to date.
During the press conference, OPW Media team is pleased to meet and interview Ms Vanessa Lin (林奕君), Chief Executive Officer and Founder (创办人及行政总裁) of AM Creative and Executive Producer (音乐剧制作人) for Musical TARU to share more about her thoughts of the musical. She shared that selecting for the cast is such a big challenge as they have to find actors who can sing, act, dance with high energy and also able to perform for a long period of time. The cast also need to carry the puppets which can be very heavy with some weighing about 20kg! She is confident of the cast that they will be able to perform their roles well.
Since young, Vanessa likes to visit the museum and she always wonder what if one day the exhibits will come alive and what will happen? This musical will be attractive to families and children who are curious and to satisfy their fantasies of seeing the museum exhibits coming to live! It is a entertaining musical that everyone will enjoy!
Musical TARU is one big adventure musical which promises plenty of laughs, tears and drama that you should not miss!
