Prudential Children First! Festival for Children 2006



Prudential Children First! Singapore International Festival for Children returns March 8 - 18, 2006!

A Festival Full of Flair!

Prudential Children First! Singapore International Festival for Children returns next year from MARCH 8 to 18, 2006 playing at the following theatres:





ACT 3 International launched this annual festival for children in 2000.
Singaporean audiences have come to recognize and expect the Festival to be the prestigious platform providing critically acclaimed works that are the best in Performing Arts for Children.
This year, we continue with programming that will give audiences rich representations and creativity that comes with the exciting balance of productions in theatre, dance, puppetry, acrobatics, mask work, dramatic comedy, and digital animation.
This supports the image of an Arts Festival for Children that offers consistently high quality and imaginative artistic work that delights young audiences from ages 3 to 12 and their families.
After 6 years of progressive audience and artistic growth, the Festival is now recognised and established as the dedicated arts event for children. Both local and expatriate parents, schools, and kindergartens know the Festival well and would request for information well in advance to make their bookings for tickets.
BOX OFFICE OPENS JANUARY 8TH giving everyone a 2-month heads up!
Prudential Assurance Co. Singapore with its unfailing support all these years, continues to be the Festival¡¯s main and title sponsor, manifesting its belief in the importance of nurturing children.
Ruby Lim-Yang, Artistic Director of ACT 3 International, the presenter says, ¡°Be adventurous with your selection as this festival is full of flair. It is a festival that draws inspiration from circles, wildlife, airplanes and the story of a famous long nose.¡±
Here are the highlights of Prudential Children First! 2006:
El Redondel, Argentina
Dance, Acrobatics, Clowning
Best for 3+ to 6-year-olds
Drama Centre Black Box
Two actors have a hilariously good time with their weird and wonderful collection of inflatable objects, all centred on the theme of circles, like balls, hoops and rings. A spectacular sensory feast that will absolutely thrill the children.
Hobey Ford, America
Best for 3- to 8-year-olds
Ngee Ann Auditorium, Asian Civilisations Museum
Visually stunning puppetry, movement and music bring the beauty of the animal kingdom to life. A caterpillar transforms into a beautiful butterfly; whales perform a classic undersea ballet and frolicking dolphins are simple delightful. Hobey Ford and his famous Golden Rod Puppets will delight all as he performs among the audience.
Theater Mascarazul, Argentina
Dramatic Comedy
Best for 5- to 9-year-olds
ACT 3 Theatre
The power of friendship is beautifully illustrated in this simple yet charming tale, adapted from the classic children¡¯s story by Swedish author Barbro Lindgren, about a sad and lonely gentleman and a homeless dog who transforms his life.
