Charlie by Bhumi Collective, Goodman Arts Centre Music Studio, 20 Nov – 7 Dec

What would you say to an innocent child who has literally never seen the world?

Bhumi Collective is delighted to present the Singapore premiere of Charlie by Victoria Chen, after two successful runs at the Edinburgh Student Arts Festival and the On the Rock Festival in 2017. In a world rife with all sorts of upheavals, twelve-year-old Charlie has spent virtually her entire life within the confines of a sterile room. She has been brought up to believe that there is danger beyond her room, and that the world has made a sacrifice for her to remain safe where she is.

The time has finally come for Charlie to meet the world and discover what really lies beyond the only four walls that she is familiar with. We invite people of all creeds to spend fifteen minutes visiting Charlie in her room. How would you explain the complex realities of a world that she has never been part of, or responsible for creating?

A $ingapore Carol by W!LD RICE, Victoria Theatre, 23 Nov – 15 Dec

S K Loo’s All-In-One app has made him the richest businessman in town. To him, only money matters. Kindness? Forget it. Generosity? Never heard of it. And Christmas? #BAHHUMBUG! He’s determined to spend Christmas as he always has – holed up in his penthouse, dreaming of hostile takeovers and retrenching staff.

But this Christmas is going to be very different. Three very unexpected spirits appear to scare the Scrooge out of S K Loo. Will he survive being haunted by the Ghosts of Christmas Past, Present and Yet-To-Be?

Directed by Hossan Leong, the year’s most eagerly anticipated musical extravaganza features a cheeky script by Jonathan Lim and a magical score by Elaine Chan. As the miserly S K Loo, Sebastian Tan (a.k.a. Broadway Beng) leads a stellar cast that includes Siti Khalijah Zainal, Audrey Luo, Candice de Rozario, Fauzie Laily and the fabulous First Stage Kids.
