The Enchanted Flute by Paper Monkey Theatre (Outdoor Puppetry Theatrical Programme for Children)



Join us for a specially commissioned outdoor puppetry theatrical programme for children at the playground!

The tranquillity of a Malay village on a tiny island was disrupted when a huge ship docked on their shores. On that very ship were some stowaways - rats! Who and what could save the village and villagers from these dreadful rats?

Be part of this stirring theatrical puppetry performance inspired by the Malay heritage and watch how the tale unravels through the nifty movements of Paper Monkey Theatre’s hand-crafted puppets with live music accompaniment by SA The Collective.

Besides the main performance, there will also be bundles of fun and laughter as families bond over a late afternoon of fringe activities including roving performances, parent-and-child hands-on craft activities, popcorn and balloons, as you witness the familiar playgrounds at Pasir Ris and West Coast Parks turn into unusual sites for pop-up performances! Remember to join us for these exciting pre-performance activities at 3pm and 5pm.

  • 3pm-4pm: Pre-performance fringe activities
  • 4pm-430pm: The Enchanted Flute performance
