Coming hot on the heels of the tremendous success of Red Riding Hood, SRT is thrilled to be working with one of London’s hottest new musical theatre teams – Jake Brunger and Pippa Cleary.
Combined with the exceptional talents of director Kate Golledge, this is a show where magic happens not only for the audience but for all those working behind the scenes as well. This musical was selected to be presented in a showcase for new musicals in the making at Andrew Lloyd Webber’s The Other Palace last month, testament to the great work this team is creating.
Suitable for kids aged 3 and above, Chicken Little is a delightfully chirpy musical adventure with toe-tapping songs about a plucky chicken who goes on the adventure of a lifetime.
Chicken Little overcomes her insecurities and embarks on a brave quest to save her fellow farmyard animals. She meets a whole host of quirky, vibrant much-loved characters, including Cocky Locky, Ducky Daddles and the brave Turkey Lurkey.
But with the fearsome Foxy Loxy on the loose, can they make it to the King alive?
Won’t spoil the surprise but it’s a very entertaining show. Children will be able to identify with Chicken Little as she summons her courage to do things she normally wouldn’t to do.
I also love that the show portrayed Ducky Daddles as a one-legged duck to show the children that we are never limited by our circumstances.
Once again, I was very impressed by the actors switching between their multiple roles seamlessly (with even some cross-dressing, haha) and playing them masterfully. I thought Natalie Yeap was brilliant as Foxy Loxy!
Here’s a trailer of the show if you are interested:
Charlotte Nors, SRT’s Managing Director said, “The Little Company has been inspiring, entertaining and engaging kids and their families for 15 years now, building a strong tradition for family theatre not just for SRT but more importantly for Singapore and the wider entertainment industry. Chicken Little is a fitting way to celebrate this significant anniversary; the 450,000 kids delighted by the productions; and the careers and talents that have been launched whilst making children’s theatre a mainstay of Singaporean family life.”
Good fun for the whole family. My boys really enjoyed the show and are still talking about the silly antics of the characters. Do go watch it before it ends!
