Take the Kids to the Theatre!

It’s that time of year for Christmas theatre shows and pantomines! We are excited about all the fun on stage at this time of year and a few of us at team Sassy Mama are raving about the charming performance of Peter Pan at Serangoon Gardens — the beloved children’s classic told with a creative local twist featuring wonderful singing, music and acting. A word of warning, though, for older kids who may catch on to some of the innuendo and the use of swear words in pig Latin.

Deets: Now until 28 Dec 2019, Wild Rice @ Funan, Level 4, 107 North Bridge Singapore 179105
