Although Peaches, paper airplanes and photo exhibitions may not sound like they’re related in any way – they’re our top picks for events happening this school holiday week! So read on to find out what you can do from Sept 7 to 10.
For a story with a little fantasy, a dose of justice and plenty of entertainment, watch as a brave little boy battles for justice in Momotaro – The Peach Boy. Momotaro goes on a journey to find the evil island of Oni so he can play Robin Hood and return the riches they’ve stolen. This wonderful Japanese Folk tale of adventure, friendship and family is brought to life for all the kid’s delight in a mix of puppetry, live action, music and theatre magic. It’s a truly amazing story that both kids and adults won’t want to miss at all!
Some kinds though, need a little something more razzle and dazzle them, so take them to the Science Centre. Because it’s a bird! It’s a plane! Well, it could be both actually, when it comes to John Collins. He’s Paper Airplane Guy and he’s back again at the Science Centre this year. With spectacular origami paper airplanes last year, he’s come back with many more! Learn how you can create your own amazing works like fighter jets and a Starship shuttle. You won’t want to miss his workshop for your dose of creativity this week (check out our interview with him).
Or maybe you need something with a little more horizon – take the kids for a bird’s eye view of Singapore with a trip on the Singapore Flyer, before exploring the Times of our Lives photo exhibition.
For the not-so-young at heart, indulge in some theatre (and support the hardworking theatre students) with Eurydice. This classic tale has been giving a contemporary update with plenty of plot twists and some stunning visual effects, this is a new and refreshing look at a timeless love story. Otherwise treat your musical side with The Album Leaf who are back after a string of sell-out performances at the Mosiac Music Festival in 2007.
That’s what we’ve got to recommend for you this week – stay tuned to find out what you should do this weekend!
