Who says 'old age' is the last stage? ENCORE: An Evening of Ageless Theatre is a showcase from the participants of The Necessary Stage's Theatre For Seniors programme. This 3-year programme, which was launched in April 2008 with support from the Council for Third Age, comprises participants aged 55 and above undergoing a series of workshops with professional facilitators, led by Artistic Director Alvin Tan. The initiative was designed to equip participants with the essential skills and knowledge in drama.
Their end-of-first-year presentation, ENCORE: An Evening of Ageless Theatre, is a showcase of devised works and short plays culminating from TNS' innovative workshop. ENCORE: An Evening of Ageless Theatre will comprise 5 works—3 in English (Verena Tay's Prosperity, G.L. Horton's Best Practice, and @24, a play devised by Jalyn Han and the cast) and 2 in Mandarin. This showcase is the result of a synergy between theatre veterans and life's veterans bringing to light themes on aging, dignity, family and memory and youth. This ground-breaking programme provides seniors an avenue to impart their personal stories and adds a new spectrum of looking at their life-history and cultural identity. It also presents participants an opportunity to learn new skills, engage and interact with their peers, and explore new facets of life in their third age.

转载自 W!ld Rice:
Oscar Wilde’s THE IMPORTANCE OF BEING EARNEST is one of the world’s most enduringly popular comedies, boasting some of the funniest lines of the English language.
In WILD RICE's exciting production, celebrated theatre and film director Glen Goei puts a provocative spin on this comic masterpiece by casting an all-male ensemble in bespoke suits - revealing new insights into Wilde's comedy about courtship, hidden identities, and the foibles of high society.
With a sensational international cast, dressed to the nines by fashion doyen Frederick Lee, and live music by the internationally acclaimed T’ang Quartet, The Importance of Being Earnest promises to lift your spirits with an evening of sparkling wit, laughter and love. Don’t miss it on any account!
