Poultry Tales – REVIEW
We have been looking forward to watch Poultry Tales as this is a brand new and interesting play where you can get to see the buzz and activity occurring behind the backstage to how the show is being presented to the audience.
The show started with back stage crews working on getting the show ready and with new trainees learning the ropes from the senior crews. Audience get to see and learn how backstage works and some of the backstage jargon being used like fly bar, flat hand prop, cyclorama, etc.
The backstage crew in the show are curious, they have always wanted to know and feel how it is like to act in front of the audience. They had fun taking turns to act out the roles behind the scenes and create their own interpretation of Poultry Tales much to the amusement of the audience.
This year is Year of the Rooster and Poultry Tales is a special play featuring 3 famous feathered friends, the stars of 3 classic tales. They are The Goose that laid the golden eggs, The Little Red Hen and Chicken-Licken.
It is a smooth and cleverly woven story right from the backstage to the musical with 3 classic stories all in one show!
One of our favourite characters is the stage manager cum The Little Red Hen by Isabella Chiam. Kids enjoy interacting with her and she got the kids laughing with her “bok bok gey” when she gets angry as the little red hen.

The backstage trainee cum Mother Goose by Elizabeth Loh is also the audience’s favourite where her comic performances is fun to watch especially when her “insides” spilled out with ribbons when the greedy innkeepers killed her thinking that there were golden eggs hidden in her stomach made the audience roared in laughter.
This cast is superb in their acting using various face masks to represent a different character. Audience had fun watching the cast act out their characters seamlessly. This is a lively, highly interactive musical with meaningful themes and moral stories along the way. Throughout the show, kids will learn about the values of not to be greedy, learn to keep your promise and more!
Overall, we enjoyed the show! We get to see so many things in just one show from learning about the backstage secrets, how a musical is being staged and to 3 famous classic stories all in one play! We love the cast, they are brilliant and likeable in their roles. It is a fun, meaningful and enjoyable show that is suitable for the whole family!
Don’t miss it and please support I Theatre!
