However, they did not realise that someone has been following them with ulterior motive, Foxy Loxy by Natalie Yeap. Foxy Loxy can’t wait to eat them up and what will happen to Chicken Little and her friends? Watch the musical to find out. 

We enjoy watching the cast of Chicken Little, they put up a stellar performance bringing each of their character to life. They have so much chemistry with one another and it is delightful to watch them. We simply adore Chicken Little and we can see how she has transformed from a timid, innocent little chick to a brave one. Looking at the response from the audience, you can see the children are totally absorbed into the story. They laughed, sing-along and clapped enthusiastically when Chicken Little saves the day!

Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT)’s Red Riding Hood 小红帽

SRT Red Riding Hood Chinese

It is not often we watch a full musical in Mandarin and we are certainly impressed with the latest offerings by Singapore Repertory Theatre (SRT)’s Red Riding Hood 小红帽! 

We are all so familiar with the all time favourite fairytale, “Little Red Riding Hood” about a young girl and a Big Bad Wolf. However, SRT’s Red Riding Hood 小红帽 brings the story to a greater height with more delights and unexpected twists! 

SRT Red Riding Hood

小红帽 known as Little Red explores the story of a brave, young girl who has to venture deep into the woods to visit her grandmother for advice to save her parents’ cake shop which was about to close after the mystery disappearance of her father. On her journey to visit her grandmother, she met a charming Big Bad Wolf and believed in his tales to go into the forest to pick some beautiful flowers as a gift for her grandmother. This is against her mother’s advice as she has warned Little Red not to venture into the forest and stick to the main road. Little Red has also given the direction to her grandma’s house to the Wolf without knowing it has plans to find the house to eat up grandma!

On her way, she met a forgetful but helpful woodcutter, Will who carried a magic book also known as “A Book of Important Things”. Audience will embark on a magical journey with the two of them with the help of the book to cast spells and save them from danger. Will Little Red with the help of her new friend, Will the Woodcutter reach Grandma’s house in time to save her from the Wolf? 

SRT Red Riding Hood 1

小红帽 is a fun and highly entertaining show this is full of unexpected twists that keep you wondering what’s next?

There is not a dull moment in the musical and be mesmerised with bright and cheerful songs that will keep you entertained throughout. Not to worry if you are not strong in Mandarin as the show and its dialogues are in simple Chinese. On the day we watched the show, we can see that many kids are immersed with the show and are laughing out loud at the the witty dialogues among the cast.
