    Harry is puzzled...
    A little suitcase has arrived with tiny clothes in it - 'I can't fit into those!' A tiny cage bed on wheels -'I can't sleep in that!' A huge stork in the garden... Now that really is strange.

    A new baby arrives and turns life upside down for a certain little person. Transported from the sublime pleasure of being the constant centre of attention through the scary chaos of change, Harry discovers the pain and delight of becoming a big brother who eventually loves his baby sister. An excursion info the egocentric world of the very young- child presented in a warm and intimate performance style, with wonderful visuals, comedy and audience participation.

    Prosepero's Children

    A play for everyone over the age of 7 by Robin Kingsland


    Presented by SRT's The Little Company
    DBS Arts Centre - Home of SRT
    29 Jun - 1 Sept 2002

    Home -idyllic tropical isle, blue skies, leafy palms, deserted sandy beaches. But Miranda has had enough. "I'm so bored I'm sick of it all!" Dad is a distant figure, his nose stuck in a book - always ready to use a magic spell to make up for his failings as a parent; Ariel is invisible - which is a bit of a problem when it comes to playing games- and Caliban, well, Caliban has the bad-tempered insecurity you would expect from someone who is a bit of a monster. Then a thunderstorm appears out of a bright blue sky, a ship is wrecked upon the rocks, and life begins to get a little bit more interesting.

    An exciting and adventurous new play based on Shakespeare's The Tempest, Prospero's Children is less about love and politics and more about the trials and tribulations of growing up. Retaining all of Shakespeare's story-telling magic and with a strong sense of fun, Prospero's Children takes a fresh and modern look at that age-old problem - What do you do when a half-drowned royal prince washes up on your favourite beach?

    Cast: Serene Chen, Chua Enlai, Karen Tan, Keagan Kang, Christian Lee, Adelina Ong.

    A girl's night out at a local club turns into a series of plot twists and stunning revelations in this coming-of-age tale about 3 girls - Alice, Michelle and JoJo. Unknown to them, Alice's boyfriend Kelvin and his friend Jason have decided to come to the same club for the same purpose - to score.

    A series of coincidence and rather comic situations culminate in an explosive finale as the protagonist grows up in the most unexpected way. With a generous dose of humour and packed with great music, "re:mix" captures the pulse of the night clubbing scene in Singapore today.

  • SRT Gala 2002 - A weekend in the South-Pacific

    southpacific4 - 5 May 2002 The Beaufort, Sentosa

    SRT's Gala 2002 was themed around an escape into the South Pacific and was extra special with a weekend stay at the gorgeous The Beaufort Singapore, Sentosa.

    With a guest list featuring the Who's Who of Singapore, the weekend escape started with guests checking-in at the hotel in the afternoon, followed by a pampering spa clinic. Nokia, the Presenting Sponsor of this event, hosted phone spas for the guests, golfing sessions and pocket events with the guests.

    Early evening, as the sun was setting, cocktails were served by the poolside. The gala dinner commenced with a synchronized swimming performance in the pool as guests indulged in specially created dishes of the South Pacific. The entertainment continued with performances by international singer Helen Evans, Dick Lee and The Young Co.

    After dinner, guests danced to big-band sounds and salsa late into the night. After all the vibrancy of the night, guests retired to their rooms at the Beaufort. The following morning, breakfast was served before guests bid farewell to a truly memorable weekend escape.

     

     

     

     

     

     

  • The Theatre Ball by SRT 2002 - Carnevale di Venezia!

    srtball2002carnevale300x40016 Nov 2002

    With the inauguration of The Theatre Ball, SRT is adding another level of entertainment to Singapore's cultural landscape. A costumed ball and an annual tradition, we hope to give revelers a chance to put on a costume and let loose with the celebrations.

    This year's Theatre Ball was called Carnevale di Venezia, themed around the Venetian carnival in Italy, which is undoubtedly the most famous masquerade ball of all time.

    Corum Swiss Timpieces was the Presenting Sponsor and the night kicked off with a showcase of Corum's watches. Guests turned up in full force, all decked out in their best Venetian costumes and beautiful masks.

    Sketches and scenes reminiscent of the Commedia dell'Arte, serenades and popular Italian melodies performed by Dick Lee, stilt-walkers, acrobats and scrumptious Italian fare all led to an amazing night that was the talk of the town.
