“We like creating interesting, fun and memorable experiences for children. Theatre feeds into the desire to know, to learn to discover, and our show-n-work approach will have children not just watching as audience but learning from doing as active participants. You need to try it to find out how valuable it is an experience!””
– Ruby Lim-Yang, Artistic Director

For ages 4 and above

Zodiac Mania

Sunday, February 12 or  19,  2017

This February, we’ve got a surprise for you! A unique experience of watching a show that comes with a Drama workshop that extends the experience of the imagining journey for the children.

Best for ages 4 to 8, this Show-n-Work approach starts with a two-hander play of 30 minutes and is followed by a series of active participation activities getting children to explore the narrative, themes and characters after they have experienced it all through the play. We even have a small craft making activity at the end!

First up, the programme will begin with an interactive dramatisation of The Great Zodiac Animal Race where they will learn the true story of how the Chinese Zodiac began with its 12 glorious animals. Then, based on the story, they will dramatise and have fun learning to use their whole body to become the different zodiac animals. They will then compose the sounds the animals make and build it up to a rousing and tremendous zodiac soundscape. Then, coming back together in a line, they will create their version of a dragon dance. And finally, to end it all, the children will learn how to make their own red paper cuttings for good luck.

This is a drop-off programme for only 30 children. Ages 4 to 8.

Sundays With Us August 2016 Fish

By | Sundays With Us | No Comments
 “Children discover and learn in many ways. Sometimes it’s through experience, sometimes it’s through language and sometimes it’s through movement. Drama pushes the boundaries when it comes to discovering and learning and when a parent and child experience it together through movement and language, it makes the learning journey even more worthwhile and enjoyable. So come join us on a Sunday!”

Sundays With Us Apr 2016 Caps

By | Sundays With Us | No Comments
 “Children love imitating as it is a form of pretend play where they learn and have fun through mimicry. In Drama and especially in a drama lesson that is catered to both parent and child, when the parent is dramatising, the child models after what his parent is doing. And I believe that this is a powerful tool that not only promotes child development but teaches about values as well.”
Ruby Lim-Yang

Monkey See, Monkey Do!

Inspired by
Caps for Sale
by Esphyr Slobodkina

Sunday, April 24, 2016

Spend a Sunday with your child bonding in our unique Drama Workshop inspired by an effortless story that teaches about problem and resolution. Who knows? You just might have a ball of a time mimicking each other by seeing and doing!

A timeless classic written 75 years ago, back in 1940, Caps for Sale is a warm and humorous tale about a band of mischievous and playful monkeys who taunt and disturb a poor, hardworking cap salesman by leaving his caps all over a tree! Having to earn a living, the salesman wants them back but the naughty monkeys simply don’t listen. Just who will prevail in this battle of CAPS?

In our unique parent-child Drama Workshop, you and your child will discover simple dramatic tools as you explore and learn to dramatise through sight, movement and voice. With repetitive and simple text that can easily be memorised, the both of you will speak with gusto, act with confidence and maybe even get to throw some caps around!

Speaking with Spontaneity

Saturday, 18 & 25 July, 3:00pm to 5:00pm
Sunday, 19 & 26 July, 10:30am to 12:30pm

Have you ever been in a situation where someone asked you a question and you were stuck for words because you just could not think of an answer at that very moment?

Well, believe it or not, this is a common dilemma for many adults and children. However, when we are able to think on our feet and give a spontaneous answer, it builds up our confidence and it shows that we are resourceful and calm under pressure.

This unique communications workshop for children will not only teach your children valuable tips on how to think fast by relaxing, reflecting, focusing and responding, but also help them articulate thoughts and ideas quickly, translating them into coherent and meaningful communication.
