September Holiday Activities!

Half of the month has passed and in another 2 weeks time, the September holidays will be here! Here's a list of ideas for you to make the best of for the upcoming break!

1. Geronimo Stilton 'Live' on Stage @ United Square!
Dumpling loves Thea Stilton series and this is one that she is looking forward to :) 

Geronimo Stilton has his bags all packed and ready to go on a vacation! However, due to a slight miscommunication between Geronimo and Walter Newsynose, the newly appointed travel writer for Gazette Newspaper, it turns out that the travel itinerary is not quite set yet.

Joined by his beloved nephew Benjamin, naughty cousin Trap and imaginative sister Thea, Geronimo needs the help of all daddies and mummies, boys and girls in the audience to help decide where they should jet set off to.

Kids can look forward to an engaging mousey adventure filled with games, dance, songs and a whole lot of fun! Get your paws ready to tap and clap along!

What’s more, the Meet & Greet sessions are open to all fans! Simply queue for a Meet & Greet pass 1 hour before each show and be the first 50 families to Meet & Greet Geronimo, Thea, Trap & Benjamin Stilton after the show.

Wednesday, 3 Sept to Monday, 15 Sept
Mondays to Fridays : 2pm and 7pm
Weekends : 2pm, 5pm and 7pm
No shows on 9 Sept, Tuesday.

United Square Atrium

2. Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles ‘Live’ On Stage

These mutant turtles were big during my days when I was a kid so it's kinda cool that they have returned and on the big screen too! For those of us who love these pizza loving turtles, here's more details:

The Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles will rise from the sewers of New York City and hit the stage at City Square Mall in an all-action experience! Look forward to meeting the Turtles – Leonardo, Raphael, Donatello and Michelangelo – join in the action as they share some tips they have learnt from Master Splinter. Be ready to get up close and personal in a Meet & Greet session by redeeming an exclusive Meet & Greet pass with a minimum spending of $50*. (There is also an exclusive 3D floor art of these turtles!)

6. SRT's Nightingale (English)

What is it? The nightingale? I do not know it at all, and it lives in my empire!" SRT's The Little Company brings you a refreshing new take on Hans Christian Andersen's well-loved fairy tale. Directed by Kate Golledge (Red Riding Hood, 2013), The Nightingale is a joyful burst of song that reminds us all to appreciate and value the world around us

Enchanted by the lilting birdsong of the plain-looking, brown Nightingale, the little Emperor of China captures and keeps her in a gilded cage for his daily entertainment. But soon, along with her freedom, the beautiful voice of the Nightingale is lost and a singing mechanical bird replaces her

Will she survive her days in captivity? Will she ever fly freely again? Join the Nightingale and friends in their quest for her freedom. With catchy rhymes, beautiful music and clever dialogue, it is a 'trill-ing' show that will definitely captivate young audiences!

When and where:
Date: Now till 14 September 2014
Venue: Singapore Repertory Theatre
