Theatre Season 2018 RainbowFish

By | Theatre Season | No Comments

An Asian Premiere and in Singapore, the Rainbow Fish will enchant even the youngest child with his silver scales and heart of gold in this award-winning book about the beautiful fish who learned to share his most prized possession. Using the magic of black light, Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia will bring The Rainbow Fish to life with their amazing puppetry skills.

Mermaid Theatre of Nova Scotia’s elegant new show, The Rainbow Fish, will include an original stage adaptation of Marcus Pfister’s colourful story as well as two of his companion tales, Rainbow Fish Discovers the Deep Sea and Opposites.

For ages 3 to 8

The Rainbow Fish

August 20 to 29, 2018

Ticket Sales Begin May 1 2018

The first of three tales introduces the most beautiful fish in the sea, whose scales shimmer in all the colours of the rainbow. He is admired – and resented – by the entire underwater world, until a clever octopus advises him to give each fish one of his scales.

Further adventures follow as The Rainbow Fish finds the courage to explore the great unknown deep sea, discovering a new world with wonderful sights and friendly creatures of all shapes, sizes and colours who are eager to make his acquaintance. The underworld wonderland is the setting for an introduction to the concept of opposites.

As a fitting finale, the story ends with the most satisfying opposite of all—give and take—as Rainbow Fish shares one of his shining scales with a friend.

Holiday Workshop Mar 2018

By | Holiday Workshops | No Comments

This holiday, get yourself stuck in a spider’s web and meet Charlotte the proud owner! As she weaves and spins her fascinating tales, get to know her animal friends as well – Wilbur the friendly pig, Fawn the brave girl and many more.

Loosely based on E. B. White’s version about friendship and love, our Drama Workshops are specially planned and created to meet the different age group levels to aid in their mental and physical development. Featuring storytelling intertwined with tons of drama activities and exercises set in a warm and inviting environment, your child will develop creativity, empathy and a love for all things DRAMA.

So register your child for a week of dramatic FUN now!

“Well-written narratives have always provided children with a language to express themselves and Charlotte’s Web is one such example. The themes taken from the story are real and they can help a child to ponder and reflect about their own lives with their family and friends. And in turn, this will develop empathy and compassion for others – beautiful values that all parents want their children to have.”
Ruby Lim-Yang
Artistic Director
ACT 3 International

For ages 7 to 17 months
Parent and Child Workshop

A Web of Shapes

One-off 45-min Workshop

In a world of a spider’s beautiful web, join Fawn and her friendly spider friends as they teach you the meaning of friendship that lasts forever.

In our 45-minute Drama Workshop that is interactive, inviting and tactile in nature, you and your little one will explore and play within the web as you discover spiders in all shapes and sizes – round, square, long and skinny, some with all their legs and some with less. As the story slowly unfolds, the both of you will be mesmerised as you watch Fawn creating magnificent shapes with the web and spinning it in the air, on the floor and around your baby and you.

Let’s Build A Story

One-off 60-min Workshop

At the beginning of our 60-minuter Drama workshop for parent and child, you and your toddler will be invited to step into the world of the story as our Drama teacher performs a simplified version of Charlotte’s Web using hand puppets.

After the story is told, your child will work together with the other children to help build one gigantic spider’s web. Following that, the children will each be given a spider puppet which they will then manipulate to retell the story with our teacher in role as the storyteller.

Through a combination of dance, song and movement, your child will have great imaginative fun creating dramatic moments with his spider puppet on the giant spider’s web. At the end of the workshop, the spiders will fall asleep to the tune of a soothing lullaby.

Discover Charlotte

5-Day Workshop

With good friends like Wilbur the Pig, Templeton the Rat and Fawn the girl, Charlotte is one happy arachnid playing with them all day long. One day, she decides to spin a very large web, her last. When it is completed, she lays her eggs on it and waits for them to hatch into little baby spiders. After Charlotte leaves, her friends look after her babies and keep them happy for many days on end.

In this 5-day Drama workshop, your child will look at the story of Charlotte’s Web from a different viewpoint – through the eyes of Charlotte the spider. Through exploration, imagination and discovery, he will learn how to use simple Drama tools to tell the story with a mix of music, creative movement and choral speaking. Finally, on the last day, the children, under the guidance of the teacher in role, will put up an intimate performance for you and your guests.

A Barnyard Family

5-Day Workshop

In a farm not far off, a family of humans, a family of spiders, a family of pigs and a family of rats live with each other in harmony. The spider family is very large and amongst them is a little spider named Charlotte. When Charlotte grows up, she begins to spin a shiny web and lays her eggs on it. When they hatch, everyone comes together to help and support Charlotte by looking after her babies.

In this adaptation with a focus on friendship and support, your child will enjoy working together with the other children and get a chance to play many different characters. With a mix of choral and individual speaking, creative movement and role playing, your child will imagine and create the world of the farm and eventually share his moment with you in a finale showcase in our very own theatre.

With a strong focus in creating many opportunities for each child to develop important lifelong skills, our workshops will focus on the themes of friendship, loss, love, death, sadness, strength and kindness.

For ages 8 to 12

Spin Your Own Tale

Writing Workshop

In this special one off 2-hour writing workshop, our Drama teacher in the role of a facilitator will steer your child to create and write a new story using the themes from the original, thereby developing their thinking, reflecting, conversational, imaginative, teamwork and writing skills.

Beginning with a read around, your child will take turns with the other children to read a sentence from the story. Following that, an in-depth discussion will take place in order to tease out the important themes. Then, with those themes in mind, your child will be paired up with another child to reimagine a new story and write it down together. Lastly, in a mini showcase, the children will read out their story in front of a live audience of family and friends.

An Entanglement of Songs

Musical Workshop

Using a simple musical score-script sung to familiar tunes, the story of Charlotte’s Web will begin with Fawn, the little girl, who sings of her dilemma when she finds out that her favourite pig is going to be slaughtered. Wilbur the pig will then share his predicament and sadness when he overhears that Charlotte, his best friend, will spin her last web before she dies. And lastly, Templeton the rat will tell us of his plight of whether he should eat well or help his friends cope with their upcoming losses.

In this 2-hour musical workshop, your child will learn how to work together with other children and create an ensemble to express themselves through movement and song in order to tell a story. With a strong focus in music, singing and complete physicality of the body, this workshop will culminate in a small private performance for parents and friends.

Learn with Drama! 2018
for Pre-Schools and Kindergartens

Fire up the imagination with three very highly engaging Drama Programmes for both Teachers and Preschoolers!

At ACT 3 Drama Academy, we strive to deliver meaningful programmes that marry both Art and education. We believe that young children should be given opportunities to grow their educational, personal, social and creative development.

“It is said that imagination is like an open window for children to experience the outside world for themselves. It should be encouraged by both parents and educators through dramatic play. After all, children learn not only from what they are, but also from what they want to be.”
Ruby Lim-Yang
Artistic Director

Hungry Hungry

Inspired by
The Very Hungry Caterpillar
By Eric Carle

A hungry baby caterpillar hatches from an egg and slowly chomps his way through a variety of food on each day of the week. After getting a terrible stomachache, he learns his lesson and finally pupates and emerges as a beautiful butterfly.

Our specially curated 90-minute workshop, inspired by this beautiful story, will offer many opportunities for your students to work together and express themselves creatively and imaginatively. It will begin with fun and educational activities that will prepare and set your students for Drama.

Let Me Tell the Story!

Inspired by Interrupting Chicken
By David Ezra Stein

A little red chicken promises to be good during storytelling time but fails miserably. Interrupting her father during crucial moments of fairy tales such as Hansel and Gretel and Little Red Riding Hood, the both of them finally fall asleep in each other’s arms.

In this very unique and interactive workshop for preschoolers, your students will enjoy role playing both parent and child discovering the many ways of telling a story and interrupting it. Beginning with warm-up exercises to gear your students up for 90 minutes of Drama, this workshop will introduce the concept of playing a role through characterisation, using the body for creative movement and developing the voice for language.

ChildrenDay 2017

By | Holiday Workshops | No Comments

In this workshop, children from the ages of 3 –12 year olds will take on the roles of storytellers and using creative drama tools to tell stories inspired by ‘Swimmy’, ‘Frederick’ by Leo Lionni and ‘The Little Prince’ by Antoine De Saint Exupery with their own interpretation.

Children will stretch their imagination and creativity as they scamper around , swim around and fly around the space in their roles from the stories, using tools of drama like, tableau, simple improvisation, movement and role play to interpret their stories in their own ways.

There will be lots of room for creative expression, facial or physically as the children explore with drama activities that empowers their imagination and draws out the storyteller in them.

For ages 3 to 4 years

Swimmy

This is a beautiful story of a small black fish that swims faster than his many red brothers and sisters. The ability to swim fast saved him from being devoured, like his siblings, by a large tuna.

While Swimmy was happy to be alive he was lonely and scared but marveled at all of the wonders of the sea.

“But the sea was full of wonderful creations and as he swam from marvel to marvel Swimmy was happy again.
He saw a medusa made of rainbow jelly
a lobster, who walked about like a water-moving machine…”

Finding a school of fish that looked just like him he introduced them to the wonders of the sea, even though they were afraid of being eaten by bigger fish. Clever Swimmy figured out a way they could scare off big fish while all of the little fish swam together.

Frederick

The story starts by telling the reader about a stone wall in a meadow. In this wall lives five field mice who realize that they must prepare for winter.

Four of the field mice get busy collecting corn, nuts, wheat and straw, but one mouse, Frederick has other ideas. When asked why he isn’t working he says he is gathering the suns rays for dark days, gathering colors from the flowers for gray winter days and gathering words for long winter days.

Once winter hits the field mice all gather in their home but as the season passes they slowly run out of food to eat and become sad. It is at this point that Frederick paints them a picture with his words of the warm sun, the colorful flowers and stories to help them endure the long winter.

When Frederick had finished, they all applauded. ”
But Frederick,” they said, “you are a poet!”
Frederick blushed, took a bow, and said shyly, “I know it.”

The Little Prince

by Antoine de Saint-Exupery

The narrator begins the tale with an explanation of his dislike of adults; he claims he does not enjoy them, for they are much too practical. Instead, he prefers the company of children, who are natural and curious.

The narrator next tells of how his plane crashed in the desert, where he met the Little Prince, a mystical creature from another planet. The narrator tells why the Prince left his planet and where he visited before coming to Earth. His adventures on six different planets are recounted, including the encounters with the king, the conceited man, the tippler, the businessman, the lamplighter, the geographer, the snake, the desert flower, the garden of roses, the railway switchman, the merchant, the fox, and the narrator.

The narrator and the Prince share a rewarding relationship on the desert, and when the Little Prince departs, the narrator misses his company.

Children come away with understanding different ways to tell a story through the use of drama tools, for example, the children use improvisation to create a different ending to the story, or with the use of music, the scenes from the story can be retold by just mime and movement.

As they take on the role of storytellers, the children display confidence in themselves as they become effective communicators. In communicating their stories, the children will also build up the use of language as they retell the story in their own words.

From this storytelling workshop, the interest in different genres of literary text will be instilled in them, sparkling off the interest in reading and appreciating literature. But most of all, the children come away from this workshop, having loads of fun and believing in themselves as Great Storytellers.
