There are the old classics like The Enormous Turnip, Little Red Riding Hood, Gingerbread Man, and the children’s stories of that era. But there are some new classics that every child should read. To me, The Gruffalo by Julia Donaldson definitely makes the list as a modern classic. It is such a fun read for both kids and parents – so important when your kid makes you read it again and again.

The latest to join in on the Gruffalo fun is Alyssa. She loves it! Sometimes she calls herself the Gruffalo, sometimes she says she’s the mouse and daddy is the Gruffalo. It’s so cute to see her show me her terrible teeth and her terrible claws.

I decided to bring her and Ellery to watch the Gruffalo that was showing at KidsFest2016. I had brought Asher for the show years ago when it first came to Singapore. It was fabulous! The stage production brought out new aspects of the book that I hadn’t thought of before. I think that is when drama is at it’s best because it should be insightful and give you more than you could have gleaned on your own. Anyway, a while later Forum the Shopping Mall brought in the Gruffalo as well and I had brought the boys to catch that, but Ellery was so young he really doesn’t remember watching it at all.

So off we went for this year’s production of Gruffalo.

The actors have changed, but the magic of the story is the same. And seeing the Gruffalo in person is always such a treat. He looks so squishy and huggable! And thankfully not scary, because I’ve heard of kids who are scared of the Gruffalo in the book. The cast was playful, and there were parts that were improvised and you could see the merriment in their eyes. It’s good when the cast enjoy themselves.

The show largely follows the book, but they give the Fox, the Owl and the Snake some very interesting personas. My favourite is always the Snake. He is hilariously flamboyant and so full of himself. I love that the same actor plays all three predators because you can see how well the actor switches roles and gives each character a unique feel. It’s more than just a costume change!

Most of the kids know the book so well they were yelling out lines when the actors feigned ignorance. The favourite is of course the mouse’s line, “I’m going to have tea with a…a…”

“GRUFFAAALLLOOO!!” roar the children.

The Gruffalo has his snack...or does he?

Alyssa and Ellery definitely enjoyed the show, and we came back to more G-g-g-gruffalo at home!

The good folks at The Little Company have outdone themselves! What a treat it was to catch Treasure Island!

treasureisland_A2 FA

Even though I was confident that the story alone would make this an interesting show, I’ll admit, I was a bit skeptical about the lead role of this classic tale being taken on by a female. And I was wondering how they were going to bring the audience onto the ship, the Hispaniola. But my concerns were unfounded and the show was superb!

The kids were very excited to go for Treasure Island and had re-read their Treasure Island book in anticipation of the show. Even Alyssa was familiar with the words ‘Treasure Island’ after I read to her A Shapes Primer: Treasure Island a few times. On the day itself they even dressed to the theme.

The kids were completely absorbed by the show, and there were many humourous parts sprinkled here and there to lighten the story. They were especially tickled by the O’Brien and how he described his abilities and why he should be brought along for the voyage. He was the character that provided the most laughs. Even after we went home they were singing his “I have hands, I am strong” song.

It’s hard to say which was the main highlight – the cast, the songs or the set, because they were all so good!

The cast featured familiar faces that we had seen in other performances, and I was happy to see them thrown together in this show. In fact, several of them were my favourite actors from separate productions, so this was really a high powered cast that was put together for Treasure Island. Together they made a great team and each played their characters (some of them taking on multiple roles) with such aplomb.

Treasure!

The songs were fabulous! How else can I describe this? You really got to listen for yourself. “Life on the Sea” was beautifully arranged, and there was the wonderful number “The Coconuts and Me” by Ben Gunn (played by Kimberly Chan). I would consider purchasing a copy of the CD if there was one on sale!

I loved the sets too, especially the ship. You really felt like you were on board the ship with them. At one point one of the characters threw something overboard, and I expected to hear a splash! That’s how well they brought you into the story! From the Admiral Benbow Inn, to the ship, to an island filled with coconut trees, the sets were all very well done.

Just look at that gorgeous set! And the lovely costumes!

The show ends on a positive note with the power of friendship to make things family friendly, and it was good for the kids to see how someone can turn over a new leaf. It ends on a high, and you leave feeling extremely satisfied.

There are only a few days left (the show ends its run on 13 Dec), and if you haven’t already caught the show, I highly highly recommend it. It is probably my favourite show by The Little Company so far!

Tickets are available through the SISTIC website and the SISTIC hotline (63485555).

One morning I woke to find Asher engrossed in the first book of Harry Potter. I wasn’t quite sure what to think, and wondered if it was a bit too dark and scary for him. After assuring me that it really was okay and not too scary*, he promptly said, “Petrificus totalus! Mummy you cannot move anymore!” Followed by gleeful laughter.

In the days that followed he would burst into the house when he came home from school and cast the body bind spell on Ellery who gamely froze up each time. We decided that a kiss would remove the spell and I managed to save Ellery for a few days. That was until Asher came home and put the body bind spell on both Ellery and I. Yes, during that period it was not safe to be in our house at 7.10pm everyday.

Imagine Asher’s excitement when I told him we would be going for a workshop where he could design his own spells!

We were invited to Spell CraftINK, a creative writing workshop for children by Monsters Under The Bed (MUTB). INK stands for Imagination N’ Knowledge, and INK Workshops are three-day creative writing programmes that stimulate children’s imagination and passion for writing. Participants engage in role-playing, group discussions, and physical activities that expand their creative space. Each INK Workshop has a unique theme, from zombies and Greek mythology, to investigation and in this run, magic!

Monsters Under The Bed

The fun started even before the first day of the workshop. We received an email from Monsters Under The Bed a week before the workshop with a letter from Professor Double-X, the Principal of the Mundane School of Monsters and Magic. In it, we were told that Asher was provisionally accepted into the Mundane School of Monsters and Magic because he displayed some innate magical ability. As a result, he was invited for a trial course to assess his capabilities at wielding his latent magical powers. Depending on his performance, he would either be accepted by the school or rejected. We learned that ordinary non-magical people were known as Mundanes, and Mundane children, Munlings.

Along with the letter came a sheet giving detailed explanations of the different types of magic: Wood, Fire, Earth, Metal, Water, and Chaos. We were told each Munling had an affinity with a particular type of magic depending on their month and year of birth. Asher was so excited to discover one of his affinities was Fire magic because it is the magic of destruction. Uh huh. Like, so happy. Metal was his other affinity and he thought that was cool too since it was the magic of transformation.

Professor Double-X had tasked them to start thinking up spells related to their affinities in preparation for the Munling trial course. Munling Asher (with sidekick Munling Ellery) plunged into the pre-workshop activity with so much excitement that I regretted telling them about it just before bedtime. Even after lights out they kept talking in the dark about the spells they wanted to create. I had to go in to cast the powerful, “OR ELSE” spell to make them sleep.

Spell CraftINK!

The day of the workshop was one of those rare days that I didn’t have to nag at the boys to get out of the house. The children met Professor Double-X, an artificial human that did not possess any imagination. This was unusual because only those who had imaginations could cast spells. So even though she was the principal of the Mundane School of Monsters and Magic, she could not cast any spells! She spoke in a robotic voice from the moment she introduced herself, and I wondered if she was going to continue to do so the entire time. Halfway through the day one of house masters cast a spell on her to let her speak normally, but you gotta give her credit for staying in character though!

The excitement of all the children was palpable, and they sat with rapt attention as Professor Double-X introduced the different houses and their unique characteristics. The kids were sorted into houses (which corresponded roughly with their age groups), and met their house masters. Asher was in the youngest group, called Muse house, and he was thrilled because one of the main types of magic used by this house was, you guessed it, Fire magic!

On the pretext of thinking up some magic, the kids were led through some warm-up activities to get them primed to think out-of-the-box and be totally free to dream up anything they wanted. This then led nicely into the process of ‘scribing’ their spells. They had to come up with one of each type of spell, and give details like what words to say, what the effects of the spell are, how widespread its effects were, and how long those effects lasted for. Through the process of scribing, the children learnt how to systematically develop their ideas, building on it bit by bit. They were encouraged to be as detailed as possible, as that would lead to more powerful magic.

All the kids plunged into the activity, and even Asher eagerly scribbled away at the table, writing down his ideas for one spell after another. Normally it’s very hard to get him to write if it’s not for school work, but here he was eagerly doing so!

When everyone had scribed all their spells, the house masters demonstrated how the different spells could be used by having a duel! They picked various spells from the kids and used them on each other to the kids delight. Turning everyone into rabbits, shooting fireballs, creating monsters, blasting zaps…the kids had such a good time feeding the house masters more and more spells to use.

A duel!

The highlight of the day came when the kids could exchange the ‘essence tokens’ they had earned through the course of the day for a magic wand! Asher took this very seriously and really studied all the wands before picking his. I must say the facilitators really put in a lot of effort to make each wand unique – every single wand was handcrafted with a different style!

The kids were tasked to go back and work on their spells some more because they would need them the following day.

Day 2 was an action-packed day with lots of magic flying around everywhere! First though, the kids walked into the room to find a warning message written in…blood? From who? Who wanted the Munlings to leave? The mysterious writer left no clue, so the kids had no choice but to move on with their Munling training.

There was to be a tournament among the houses to see which house could get past all the magical protective layers of the opponent’s house and retrieve an orb in order to control the opponent’s house pet. Not your average pet please, but a dragon phoenix, a shape-shifting cat, and a zombie mermaid. The houses split up to discuss their defenses and build their imaginary fortresses. I appreciated how the facilitators made sure to let each kid contribute ideas so that they all felt included in the process, no matter how wacky the idea. The facilitators really listened, and where needed they made suggestions to tweak some of the ideas to better suit the story.

Once all the houses had built their imaginary dungeons, the tournament commenced! The houses went to each other’s dungeons to try and break in using the spells they developed previously. The opponent’s house master acted as the story master, telling them what was happening and the obstacles they encountered. The kids would then have to agree on the best course of action to tackle the hurdle. Teams were awarded extra points for active participation and cooperation.

So much excitement, so much drama and magic, and lots of ideas tossed about! The facilitators were really excellent. They encouraged all the children to speak up and share their ideas, they made sure everyone was listening to the idea, and after hearing a few options, they let the children decide what they felt was the best decision. Sometimes the decision led to them overcoming the obstacle, sometimes it didn’t and the kids would go back to discussing options again. The tournament took up the rest of day 2, but the kid’s energy levels did not wane. They were so eager to infiltrate the opposing house’s fortifications, and cheered when they finally retrieved the orb!

The final day was less dramatic, but was very useful for consolidating all the ideas and stories the kids had created and role-played the day before. Day 3 was spent writing down their experience of breaking into one of the opposing house’s dungeons. They had to write down how they got past at least two of the obstacles in as much detail as they could.

You would have thought that the kids wouldn’t been so interested in day 3’s activities, but the whole room was filled with the quiet buzz of kids writing, thinking aloud to themselves, double-checking with each other what had happened at a particular battle, etc. I was completely floored by the amount that Asher wrote. I have never in my life seen that boy write so much. And with such neat handwriting to boot. His school teacher has mentioned how his handwriting needed a lot of work. She would have been so impressed with him! Seriously, even the spacing between words and letters was good! I couldn’t believe my eyes! It was clear to me that when a piece of work was important to him ( and I made a mental note about how important school work was to him…) he can do things very neatly and nicely. Ok, on the bright side, at least I know he’s capable of it :)

The kids then compiled their spells and stories into a little booklet that they could bring home. There was also the final tally on the house points, and Asher’s Muse house won!

And then, the grand finale! I was revealed that one of the house masters wanted to shut down the school because he didn’t believe Munlings should learn magic. He wanted to finish off Professor Double-X! Oh no! The Professor couldn’t defend herself because she couldn’t cast magic! What now? All the kids whipped out their wands and started casting spells to try and defeat the house master, but he deftly overcame them all. Until someone hit on the idea of giving Professor Double-X the gift of imagination! Now able to cast spells, she put a powerful spell on the house master and defeated him!

The kids left the workshop still yammering away about the spells, the stories they wrote, how they defeated the bad house master, and playfully putting spells on each other. Suffice to say that they had a blast.

If there was one thing I thought could improve the workshop further, it would be for the facilitators to perhaps talk a little bit more explicitly about writing techniques, perhaps on the last day. I believe they were trying to let the children absorb the techniques on their own, which is fun but it’s uncertain whether the children know what techniques they have learned from the workshop. While it could be useful to state the purpose of the activities, even in passing, so that the kids understand how what they are doing could relate to future writing activities, I can see how that could interrupt the flow of the activities and dampen the momentum. Perhaps what can be done is for the facilitators to sum up the techniques learned on the final day before or after the kids get down to writing their stories (before as a guide to their writing, or after to summarise the key takeaways).

Nevertheless, it was a very good workshop indeed. Asher was very proud of the story he wrote and eagerly showed it to Jon at night. The workshop succeeded in showing Asher that he capable of writing longer stories and that story writing is fun. I hope this translates to more interest in writing in school, and neater handwriting too! If nothing else, it was really a lot of fun and Asher had a great time at Spell CraftINK! He’s already looking forward to joining another INK workshop in the year end holidays!

*After discussion with the hubby, we’ve drawn the line at book 1. Asher is clamouring after book 2, but he has been told to wait and not borrow it from the school library even if it was available. General consensus among those I’ve asked is that book 2 onwards is too dark for kids his age.

Ahoy there! Somethin’ excitin’ is comin’ o’er yer way come the end of October! Better be on the lookout for it, me hearties!

Singapore Repertory Theatre’s (SRT) The Little Company (TLC) will be staging the exciting and swashbuckling story of Treasure Island from 30 Oct 2015 at the DBS Arts Centre.

A new adaptation of Robert Louis Stevenson’s popular novel of the same name, Treasure Island follows the adventure of Jim Hawkins, who receives a treasure map from a kooky old seaman. Jim is tasked to help find the hidden treasure, but the road to riches is never smooth sailing. In this version of the Treasure Island, Jim Hawkins is cast as a lion-hearted 13-year-old girl rather than a boy, possibly to appeal to the girls, though I think the story itself should be compelling enough.

Look out for other colourful characters like Captain Smollett, Squire Trelawney, and of course, Long John Silver!

Treasure Island promises to be a hilarious and action-packed musical about friendship and trust, and is suitable for the whole family! It’s a great way to welcome the year-end holidays, and reward the kids for working so hard throughout the school year.

My boys have read Treasure Island the book and really enjoy the story. So much so that when Ellery saw a children’s illustrated version of the book at the Book Swop at the recent Octoburst Festival, he exchanged a book for it even though we already have the longer version at home.

We sure are looking forward to joining those buccaneers on an adventure to find gold! Argghh!!

Treasure Island is being staged from 30 Oct – 13 Dec, 2015 at the DBS Arts Centre.
Tickets are available through the SISTIC website or via their hotline (6348 5555).

***Giveaway***

SRT has generously sponsored 1 Family Package (4 tickets) worth $153 for Treasure Island on 7 November, 11am, to be given away to one lucky reader!

I bought the children’s version of The Wind in the Willows some years back, and had read it to the kids a couple of times before. We pulled it out again in the run up to the theatre production of The Wind in the Willows performed by talking Scarlet.

The Wind in the Willows is a classic children’s book by Kenneth Grahame and tells the story of four friends – Mole, Ratty, Badger and the irrepressible Mr Toad. When Mole plucks up the courage to explore the Riverbank with his friend Ratty, nothing can prepare him for the adventure that awaits. Along with Badger and Mr Toad, they go from one exploit to the next, brought about mainly by Mr Toad’s reckless indulgences, and it all culminates in a battle not only to save Toad Hall, but their very way of life.

From the get-go the show presented a unique proposition, immersing you in a classic English experience. The costumes, the manner of speech, everything was just so English! I’ve never watched any other play like it. I wondered if the kids had trouble understanding what was said because of the heavy accents and speed of talking, but I loved it! And Mr Toad was played wonderfully! Irresponsible, irreverent, yet lovable and funny. I think the kids connected with him the most.

The irrepressible (irresponsible) Mr Toad

The script was good, the songs were original and very well arranged. I especially liked the song about going into the wild wood. The melody, rhythm, lyrics and mime came together perfectly to make you feel how creepy it was to wander in the woods when it was getting dark…and you hear a pitter patter…and you think someone’s there…

I also liked how they managed to bring you into different scenes by stirring up your imagination through the use of costumes, very simple props, and context. Without the set ever being changed, you are brought from the riverbank, to Toad Hall, on a ride down the country road, to a courtroom, to a jail, etc. Through subtle use of costume changes some actors took on multiple roles, though these might have been a bit to subtle for the kids. You have to be listening carefully to know which new character is being represented.

Now here’s Mr Toad driving his swanky new car!

While I think it is a tad too sophisticated for the little ones, its really appealing for older children and adults. I really enjoyed watching this! I think it would best suit kids 8 years and above. It is also probably a good idea to read the story to your kids first so that they have an idea of the plot and can keep up with the action. As for my kids, they liked the battle scene the best, though they wished the Chief baddy was shown being flung across the room like how it was mentioned in their version of the book. Boys.

The Wind in the Willows is brought in by ABA Productions and runs until Sunday, 14 June 2015 at SOTA Drama Theatre. Tickets are available at the SISTIC website and hotline (63485555). The show is 1h 45min long, something I had overlooked, so if you’re catching the evening show make sure not to overpack your day before that (as I did) and to give your kids enough to eat prior to the show in case they get tired and hungry (and cRaNky – as mine did! Hoo boy! My apologies to those who were sitting around us!)

We went to catch Aesop’s Fables by iTheatre with Ellery and Alyssa. I’m so glad we did because it was a thoroughly enjoyable show!

There are 8 stories and it was a good selection of familiar and less familiar tales, all with good morals that children should learn about. It led to some meaningful discussions on why “a bird is more than it’s feathers (in the Jay and the Peacock) and what it means, and why you shouldn’t give up your friends for your enemies (The Sheep and the Wolf).

I thought it was a good idea to use the context of a travelling performance company as it gave scope for the actors to take on many different characters (as would need be the case since they are telling many fables…). I also liked how the actors subtly brought home the message of using your imagination. In the show, the person in charge of the travelling company’s costumes misplaced them, and so for some characters the actors had to use everyday objects as props and costumes. The boys are familiar with this concept. Our dress up box filled with random things is one of the most popular ‘toys’ in the house. With my old white shirt they have become doctors, astronauts, dragons, kings, knights, Daddy, etc. But it’s always interesting to see new ways to create costumes – like with the sheep! It was so funny! Gloves and yarn on the head! :)

There was some audience interaction in the middle which Ellery loved. He wanted very much to go up on stage to be the Wind in the story of The North Wind and the Sun but wasn’t chosen. At the end of the show he asked to try being the Wind and the actors were so kind to oblige :) He was soo happy he declared The North Wing and the Sun his favourite story from the show and was blowing and blowing on the ride home.

So happy to be able to press the horn and be the Wind. Unfortunately covering his face here!

The actors put up good performances, transforming themselves into each new character with ease. I was keen to watch Darren Guo’s performance because I thought he did well in Hop & Honk and was interested to see how he’d do this time. His acting did not disappoint, and he continues to be a versatile actor capable of playing with his voice and manner. Actually, I thought all of them (Darren, Alecia Kim Chua, Elizabeth Loh, Erwin Shah Ismail and Ghazali Musakir ) did well individually and together.

The songs are great (till now I still have the Aesop’s Fable song stuck in my head) and I thought the choreography was good too (gotta love those Sheep!).

I left the theatre thinking, “iTheatre is getting better”. The last couple of performances have been really good, and Aesop’s Fables, with its timeless stories and lovely songs, is a great show to catch with the children.

Aesop’s Fables run until 21 Mar 2015. Grab your tickets and go support local theatre!

Aesops’ Fables is show at the Jubilee Hall at Raffles Hotel. Ticket are available via SISTIC.
