One of the world’s best-loved musicals, “THE SOUND OF MUSIC” is now showing at the MasterCard Theatres, Marina Bay Sands to a star-studded affair, with tickets to the critically acclaimed show being the hottest in town. Due to popular demand, the season has also been extended and will run until 3 December 2017.

This highly-acclaimed production comes from the home of West End musical theatre – the famous London Palladium – where the lavish and dazzling show celebrated a record-breaking 954 performances and was seen by over two million people.  In Singapore, the show played to almost 70,000 people during its five-week season in July/August 2014. 

THE SOUND OF MUSIC tells the uplifting true story of Maria, the fun-loving governess who changes the lives of the widowed Captain von Trapp and his seven children by re-introducing them to music, culminating in the family’s escape across the Austrian mountains as tensions rise prior to the outbreak of World War II.

With its unforgettable score, THE SOUND OF MUSIC touches the hearts of all ages and contains some of the most memorable songs ever performed on the musical theatre stage including My Favourite Things, Do-Re-Mi, Climb Ev’ry Mountain, Edelweiss, The Lonely Goatherd, Sixteen Going on Seventeen, and of course the glorious title song The Sound of Music. 

Additionally, eighteen of Singapore’s most able young actors and actresses will play the coveted roles of six of the seven von Trapp children, with three children chosen to alternate each character. The children come from all corners of Singapore and will perform in rotation throughout the season as the small and cute Gretl, the brothers Friedrich and Kurt, as well as their sisters Marta, Brigitta, and Louisa.

THE SOUND OF MUSIC’S original score is a result of the genius output of composer Richard Rodgers collaborating with the lyricist and librettist Oscar Hammerstein. The original 1959 Broadway production of THE SOUND OF MUSIC won five Tony Awards, including Best Musical, and was Rogers and Hammerstein’s biggest success.  The 1965 movie starring Julie Andrews as Maria won five Oscars, including Best Picture, and remains one of the most popular movies of all time.

Our Take On THE SOUND OF MUSIC

The SOUND OF MUSIC is truly a classic and although it was our first time watching the SOUND OF MUSIC musical, we enjoyed the splendid performance so much that we could not stop humming to the songs.  In fact, watching the musical reminded us of the awesome time we had in Europe and we wouldn’t mind watching the Sound of Music a second time.

If you are keen to know the real story of the Von Trapp Family after watching the Sound of Music musical, you can check it out here. If you’re travelling to the United States and you have been inspired by the Sound of Music musical, you can visit the Trapp Family Lodge owned by the Von Trapp Family.

Presented by Nick Grace Management, Lunchbox Theatrical Group, Sliding Doors Entertainment and BASE Entertainment Asia; Jacqueline and I caught the Blue Man Group at the Marina Bay Sands Mastercard Theatres 3 days ago and it was such a splendid performance that there was never a dull moment from start till end and we totally enjoyed ourselves that delightful evening.

Honestly, it’s been a long while since we last attended a performance like this and we really like how the Blue Man Group captivated the audiences with their humorous and interactive antics. While most of the musical entertainment were mainly instrumental rock with no vocals, it got us rocking and swaying with the crowds anyway.

In case you’re wondering; Blue Man Group is comedy, theatre, rock concert and dance party all rolled into one and for the first time in Singapore, this global phenomenon will blow audiences away with their high energy show. Now approaching their 25th year of creativity, this artistic group has been a smash hit off Broadway and on the Las Vegas Strip and cannot wait to redefine entertainment in Singapore.

We must also say, the backstage crew were certainly well coordinated and the lighting effects were out of the ordinary. There were a lot of 3D digital effects application and they were certainly very mesmerising.

So what can you expect out of the Blue Man Group?

Blue Man Group creates experiences that defy categorisation, taking the audience on a journey that is funny, intelligent and visually stunning, culminating in the trademark Blue Man Group finale in a blissful party atmosphere. Blue Man Group is accompanied by a live band whose tribal rhythms help drive the show to its unforgettable climax.

 

Awesome and hilarious show! Highly recommended. Because partying on Friday is too mainstream! 😛 #bluemangroup #bluemanselfie

Reconnect with your inner child, re-experience mischievousness and sheer joy, and see what fun three guys can have with 30 litres of paint and 55 mashed-up bananas in the space of an hour and a half!

The new multi-million dollar musical GREASE will blaze into Singapore this coming April from London’s West End after a sensational sell-out tour in Australia and it will open at the MasterCard® Theatres at Marina Bay Sands on 25 April 2014.

This rocking musical production is packed with explosive energy and it will feature a spectacular international cast, super-slick dance moves, dazzling costumes, and all those unforgettable songs from the hit movie, including Summer Nights, Sandy, Hopelessly Devoted To You, You’re The One That I Want, Greased Lightnin’ and Grease Is The Word.

Let’s go back in time and revisit some of these really unforgettable songs from the hit movie!

Summer Nights

You’re The One That I Want

Greased Lightning

We’re pretty certain that after listening to all those hits, you’re probably all greased up and ready to have a rocking good time!

Do you know?

The first London production of GREASE opened 6 months later after the show’s Broadway premiere in 1972 and the stage production was then followed by the 1978 hit movie starring John Travolta and Olivia Newton-John, which went on to become the highest grossing movie-musical of all time. GREASE has since triumphed across the globe, with its irresistible mix of adolescent angst, vibrant physicality and 1950s pop culture.

Written by Jim Jacobs and Warren Casey, GREASE is possibly the only hit Broadway musical ever composed entirely on guitar. The productions name comes from the term greasers, a 1950s United States working-class youth subculture. GREASE takes place in and around fictitious Rydell High, and follows ten working-class teenagers in 1959 as they experience the intricacies of love, friendship and rebellion. The story revolves around the relationship between “bad boy” Danny Zuko, who believes he is the coolest of cool and Sandy, the “girl next door”.

So dust off your leather jacket, pull on your bobby-socks, and take a trip to a simpler time as the MasterCard® Theatre is turned into Rydell High School! It will be a stage show that is truly not only ELECTRIFYING but MEMORABLE as well!

As a matter of fact, it will be a very good treat for all your older folks as they rekindle the old days!
