Uncle Rajah's Flying Carpet Tales

NEW! DIGITAL FORMAT AVAILABLE TO SCHOOLS
___________________________________________

This assembly show presents traditional Singaporean history, folktales or other world traditions through theatre, poems, stories, songs, music and movement.

The audience takes a magic carpet ride to another time and places with Uncle Rajah, his magic bag, Skid the Squirrel, Sing-Sing the Sunbird, Miss Pineapple and Old Stripes, the last tiger of Singapore.

Be ready to hear about Singaporean pioneers such as The Pineapple King, the Rubber King and the Timber King. We see how they helped to develop Singapore’s national ethos. The traditional Singapore folktales such as the Swordfish story or Badang the Wrestler present stories about national identity, environment, love and sacrifice and can be customised to any NE occasion.

This experiential story-drama, written and directed by Dr Chris Mooney-Singh (PhD, Creative Writing) is brought to life by a small cast of professional actors.
