Opportunities to watch musicals in English are a plenty in Singapore. However, what about those in Mandarin? Glad to report that from now until 13 Jan 2019, Resorts World Sentosa will be staging Musical TARU, a Mandarin production that has been locally adapted from Koreaâ€™s No. 1 Family Musical. Itâ€™s also a musical that is suitable for children, not only because of the catchy songs and dances but because there will also be life-sized dinosaurs!
The story goes that siblings Nali and Gao Feng are joined by their friend Da Fa for a night at the museum. Suddenly, a mysterious lunar eclipse occurs. Before they know it, the exhibits come alive and the fossil of a baby T-rex, TARU, goes missing! With the help of the newly animated exhibits, watch to see if they can successfully save baby TARU?
The musical will also be performed by a talented cast ensemble, including including
- Wong Jinglun (é»„é–ä¼¦), famous for his participation in Project Superstar and One Million Star
- Ling Xiao (å‡Œéœ„), a local veteran singer who has released more than 100 albums to his credits and was crowned as one of the Top Ten singers in both Singapore and Malaysia
- Taiwan Mandopop star Freya Lin (æž—å‡¡) who has released more than six albums to date
