Of course it is, right? Well, this is the famous line from the Walt Disney cartoon taken into a play in Singapore - Snow White.
Actually adapting previous cartoon shows into their own theatre shows is not new. The company behind the idea, Wild Rice, has in fact done it with shows like Oi! Sleeping Beauty and even Aladdin.
The Musical Plot
There are similaraties in the Disney cartoon - like the beautiful step daughter, the greedy step mum and her want to be the fairest in town! However, beyond that, this musical goes very much local - with many jokes poking fun at Singapore itself - especially the government!
Of course, these are all done in a cover up way - so unless you live here, or follow with Singapore news, one will not be able to catch all the jokes behind them.
But the rest will find that there are many funny lines that will tickle the bones - and which obviously makes a good evening entertainment.
The Super Cast
What I particularly like about this show is not so much the quite predictable storyline, but more so the superb cast.
They have the famous Singapore's Ah Beng, Sebastian Tan who this time round acted as the evil step mother! He played his role well - many times witty.
Then there is the very heart warming acting from the pretty Elena Wang, who played non other than Snow White herself. Her pretty demure acting with sweet good voice makes her a star attraction to the show itself.
Even Celine Rosa as the wall mirror played well - at times funny, and many times like the good servant.
Funny Sebastian giving his 'peace' sign. He is sitting in between Dwayne Tan (prince charming) and Celine Rosa Tan (the magic mirror). At the corner, the princess - Elena Wang.
Backed with funnyman Hossan Leong as director, Alfian Sa’at - book & lyrics and Elaine Chan as composer, this made a good team that is sure to draw in the crowds.
For Singaporeans, I'd say, go watch if you want a light and entertaining evening. And of course to support the locals art scene.
Though not as grand as Beauty World (which I think is really one of Singapore's best), however, this play is worthy enough for the local support! :)
And to any foreigners (especially from across the causeway), this is a good watch to know a bit more about Singapore. There's lots to learn from the jokes, and at the same time to appreciate the buzzing theatre scene here.
And you'd be surprise to know how much the government has opened up (by allowing these jokes!).
So, hurry up and catch Snow White! :)
