Embrace Emily of Emerald Hill, and more

Round up an exciting weekend of activities with our guide to what’s on after hours from June 11 to 13.

 

Emily of Emerald Hill

Playing as part of the Singapore Arts Festival, don’t miss this iconic story which chronicles the trials and tribulations in the life of a Singaporean Peranakan matriarch, superbly renditioned by Margaret Chan who returns as Emily.

Helmed by Margaret herself and producer-director Jeremiah Choy, Emily will be staged against the backdrop of this watershed era in Singapore history as portrayed in the play, rendered interactive by a multi-media presentation.

From Friday June 11 to Sunday June 13, at the Victoria Theatre. Tickets from $20 to $50.

 

Mega Line Dance

Celebrate the Singapore Arts Festival with a big, fun, family bang at the Marina Barrage at the closing ceremony. Don’t miss out on the chance to be part of this massive line dance project – it’s a great way to engage in creating art and exploring something new! It’s also the perfect chance to bond with your kids while teaching them a little something about coordination.

Sunday June 13 only, at the Marina Barrage. Free with registration.

 

Singapore Independent Music Weekend

Get patriotic this weekend and celebrate the best of local music with this two-day showcase of Singaporean bands and musicians. Presented by local music collective, The End of Recordings.

Saturday June 12 and Sunday June 13 only, at the Substation. Tickets at $10.

 

Cool

Considered to be ‘a representative of the contemporary cruel theater’, this provocative piece is definitely not for everyone. Named after Mao Zedong’s infamous statement, ‘all the reactionaries are merely paper tigers!’, witness political intrigue onstage in all its violent glory – without the bloodshed, of course.

Saturday June 12 and Sunday June 13 only, at the Esplanade Theatre Studio. Tickets at $36.

 

Wet and Live Party

If the heat of the day is too much for you, grab this opportunity to enjoy some wild, wet fun as Wild Wild Wet opens from 7pm to 10pm for visitors to experience WWW at night. Themed ‘Wet & Live’, there will be a wide variety of activities for the whole family to enjoy, ranging from relaxing in the Jacuzzi, having fun in the Tsunami (Wave Pool), all to the sounds of a special ‘Live’ band. There’s also plenty of freshly barbequed food for you to fuel up on.

From June 12 to 26, at Wild Wild West, Downtown East. $8 per adult and $6 per child.
