Preview: KidsFest 2020 presented by ABA Productions
ABA Production is back next January and February with a brand new edition of KidsFest! Bringing some of the world’s most beloved children’s theatre, KidsFest 2020 is set to imbue young audience members with a love for theatre with four world-class theatre productions adapted from exciting and well-known children’s books.
Headlining the festival will be The Gruffalo, a KidsFest classic that follows a mouse’s daring adventure as he outwits dangerous creatures like the world’s best-loved monster, the Gruffalo. The sequel will also be staged, with Tall Stories’ adaptation of The Gruffalo’s Child, as the Gruffalo’s Child ignores her father’s warnings about the Big Bad Mouse and tiptoes out into the deep dark wood. Also coming to KidsFest is Stick Man, by the creators of the original Gruffalo book. This award-winning production features a trio of top actors and is packed full of puppetry, songs, live music and funky moves, promising more fun than you can shake a stick at!
Finally, fans of Mr. Men and Little Miss can look forward to the iconic characters come to life as they leap off the page and onto the stage as puppets in the beautifully crafted live stage show. For almost 50 years, Mr. Men and Little Misses have brought joy to millions of children all over the world through self-expression, colour, simplicity and humour. The show will feature Mr Bump, Little Miss Sunshine, Mr Tickle, Little Miss Inventor and many more, so watch as Happyland bursts to life in a series of hilarious and colourful stories told through puppetry and music.
Says Matthew Gregory, Executive Producer of ABA Productions: “KidsFest is a fantastic platform for providing shared family interactions and nurturing a child’s interest in literature, strengthening language and communication skills, as well as opening their minds to new experiences and invoking curiosity. Every year, we see the appetite for quality theatre productions growing strongly in Singapore, and 2020 will be no different. KidsFest has become a key event on Singapore’s calendar of cultural events when families can look forward to a series of world-class productions promising entertainment with educational aspects.”
KidsFest 2020 runs from 31st January to 16th February 2020 at the Victoria Theatre. More information and full line-up available here
