KidsFest 2019 is Back!! + Win Family Tickets to Watch We're Going On A Bear Hunt

KidsFest! - the family’s favourite Festival is back! Young​ ​theatre​ ​lovers​ ​and​ ​enthusiastic fans​ ​will​​ be ​in​​ for​​ ​a dazzling​ ​adventure​ ​with​ ​4​ of the most popular children’s theatre shows.

Watch Room on the Broom, The Gruffalo, The Tiger Who Came to Tea, and We’re Going on a Bear Hunt at KidsFest! 2019 which starts in late January next year.

At KidsFest, characters from well-loved books are brought to life and the stories presented vividly on stage. It’s a wonderful platform for family interaction and at the same time, nurtures a child’s interest in literature and language. We've missed I think the last 2 editions so I'm making sure that we make it to at least one show next year!

Which show below would you go for??

Room on the Broom:

"Join the Witch and her cat on their mission to defeat the dragon in this magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

The Witch and her cat are travelling on their broomstick when they pick up some hitch-hikers - a friendly dog, a beautiful green bird and a crazy frog. But this broomstick’s not meant for five and - CRACK - it snaps in two... just as the hungry dragon appears!"

Show dates: Thu 24 Jan - Sun 27 Jan 2019
Number of shows: 5
Duration: Approx 60 mins, no interval
Venue: KC Arts Centre - Home of SRT
Ticket prices: S$42, S$52, S$62

The Gruffalo:

"Join Mouse on a daring adventure through the deep, dark wood in Tall Stories’ magical, musical adaptation of the classic picture book by Julia Donaldson and Axel Scheffler.

Searching for hazelnuts, Mouse meets the cunning Fox, the eccentric old Owl and the party mad Snake. Will the story of the terrifying Gruffalo save Mouse from ending up as dinner for these hungry woodland creatures? After all, there’s no such thing as a Gruffalo – is there?"

Number of shows: 6
Duration: Approx 55 mins, no interval
Venue: Victoria Theatre
Ticket prices: S$42, S$52, S$62

We're Going on a Bear Hunt:

Expect catchy songs, interactive scenes, plenty of adventure and a few surprises along the way, the ending is not quite like the book!"

Show dates: Thu 17 Jan - Sun 20 Jan 2019
Number of shows: 8
