Wild Rice's 'The Emperor's New Clothes' - 20 Nov to 12 Dec

Here's more information about Wild Rice's annual year-end pantomine, this time presenting their localised spin on The Emperor's New Clothes running from 20 November to 12 December:

Wild Rice returns this November for a local spin on Hans Christian Anderson's classic tale, The Emperor's New Clothes.

Directed by Pam Oei and written by Joel Tan, the Emperor would be celebrating the most extravagant National Dress Parade to celebrate his 50th anniversary of his reign. His narcissism has left him to neglect his citizens unless they complimented his appearance. Two troublesome tailors decide to teach him a lesson in light of his conceit.

This musical will see the likes of Lim Kay-Siu as the Emperor, with musicians, Benjamin Kheng of the Sam Willows and Singapore Idol alumni Sezairi Sezali, who will play the role of the mischievous tailors, and will be accompanied by the talented Siti Khalijah Zainal- all of whom will be playing musical instruments live on stage.

Catch Wild Rice's final production for their imagiNATION season, as we close this year with a light-hearted musical in light of our nation's 50th birthday.
