I’m looking forward to getting out of confinement and bringing the boys for outings again, so I’ve been on the look out for interesting events to attend with them.

ACE! Festival 2014 is one such event.  Starting from 21st May, it runs for slightly over two weeks to 8th June at the Drama Centre Theatre and Black Box.  This year’s theme is Long Ago and Far Away, and in line with that theme the festival promises enchanting stories, limitless adventures and magic for all ages.  There will be five original festival highlights that will let your imagination soar!

Puss in Boots and Spot the Difference will be staged by local theatre group I Theatre, while Under the Dragon Moon will be presented by Creative Edge Ensemble, a new division of I Theatre dedicated to identifying and nurturing Singapore’s most promising young talents for the professional theatre.  The two international shows are Starbird by Toto Tales and Dotty the Dragon by Blunderbus Theatre Company, both from the UK.  With a mix of local and international acts, there will be lots of choice for parents wanting to bring their children for some exciting theatre productions.  And for the families who cannot stop at just one production, there is the ACE! Magic Passport which allows you to enjoy greater discounts when you purchase two or more Family Packages for ACE! Festival productions in a single receipt.


Besides the theatre productions, there are also specially selected workshops led by professional facilitators where children can nurture their creativity, collaboration and confidence.  The workshops include Story Telling (StoryWise, Sheila Wee), Writing My First Story Book (ACT 3 Theatrics, R. Chandran), Parent-Child Bonding (Artistic Expressions), 4 O’clock Club (Artistic Expressions), Ceramic and Clay Workshop (Goodman Ceramic Studio), Fun Craft (JayJayJolly) and Craft through Drama (Toto Tales, Mara Menzies).

There are also some free fringe events scheduled that include storytelling, arts and crafts sessions, informal performances, seminars and talks.  You can read the show synopses, workshop write-ups and details of the non-ticketed programmes at the ACE! Festival website.  Go check it out!

Most of the shows take place at the end of May, so I’ll probably bring the kids to catch something in June when I’m out of confinement!
