Woof woof for Hairy Maclary and Friends!

In human terms, that means “what a delightful performance!”


We brought the boys – yes, even my squishy little bubba Zac – to the Drama Centre Theatre at National Library Building this evening to catch Hairy Maclary and Friends on stage this afternoon. And I have to say that even the adults were suitably impressed by the show.

GIVEAWAY! 4 tickets to Hairy Maclary & Friends (worth $248)

I love taking Aidan to watch theatrical performances and I am pretty glad that there will be a spate of performances coming our way soon.

One of them is the official adaptation of Lynley Dodd’s much-loved Hairy Maclary series for children: Hairy Maclary and Friends.


For the first time ever, the production is staged in Singapore at the Drama Centre Theatre (National Library Building) from 10 to 12 October. Direct from a run at the Edinburgh Festival Fringe 2013, you can now join Hairy Maclary and Friends for an afternoon of canine capers and animal adventures, as they bound off the page and onto the stage.

Meet all your favourite characters such as Hercules Morse, as big as a horse; Bottomley Potts, covered in spots; Schnitzel von Krumm, with the very low tum and Scarface Claw, the toughest tomcat in town.

Packed with live music, singing, colourful costumes, this performance is suitable for toddlers aged two and above.


We are giving to one lucky bubsicles reader a family set of 4 top category tickets to Hairy Maclary and Friends opening performance on Oct 10th, 5pm (Friday) at Drama Centre Theatre – National Library. The tickets are worth $268.

Let’s Play Pretend!

We had the chance to attend Let’s Play Pretend! at the Esplanade on Sunday afternoon, thanks to Yi Lin’s invitation.

Let’s Play Pretend! is part of Esplanade’s PLAYtime! series, an interactive theatre series meant for kids between two and four. Directed by Ian Loy and accompanied by music by Stan x Soap, the production is about what happens when three kids are left alone at home. Inevitably, they decide to play pretend, using their immense imagination to create worlds made up of campfires, space shuttles and bubble-spitting dragons.
