Giveaway! The Enormous Turnip by iTheatre!

Dumpling is a great great fan of performing Arts. She loves the songs, dances and the story line and we have basically been to more than 20 theatrical productions over a span of 2 odd years. 

iTheatre is a non-profit organisation and is one of the production houses Dumpling and I look out for. The most recent production we watched is The Little Red Hen which we enjoyed tremendously. This May and June, iTheatre is once again running ACE! Festival. 

ACE! Festival was conceived with the aim of celebrating, promoting, inspiring and stimulating creativity and artistry in families and children aged 3 to 14, presenting a positive and top quality total arts experience using Singapore’s finest talents and the best from the region and the rest of the world.

iTheatre will be showcasing 2 brand new “World Premiere” productions – The Enormous Turnip, and The Magic Porridge Pot.

  30. Twinkle Twins did a thematic study at school last year. Hope to win this as they hardly attends theatre plays and they luv singing to the tune of " ba luo bo"


  31. My 4 year old son really enjoys attending theatre productions - it is a great way to bring books to life. Hope we win the tickets. :-)


  32. The last play we went to my gals bawled when the giant from jack and the beanstalk made his appearance. Perhaps the enormous turnip would be an appropriate play to try to re-introduce plays to them! Hope to be the lucky one!
