Wild Rice proudly presents Momotaro and the Magnificent Peach, a spectacular brand-new musical adaptation of the beloved Japanese folktale this coming holiday season. Taking inspiration from anime, J-pop and all things Japanese, this epic joy ride is the perfect festive treat for the entire family!
For all of his young life, Momotaro has lived on Peach Paradise, an idyllic island so beautiful that it must have been blessed by the heavens above. But, one dreadful day, a poisonous wave of pollution engulfs Momotaro’s home and threatens the lives of everyone he loves.
Determined to save the day, Momotaro enlists the help of three animal companions – Aiko, the Shiba Inu; Yuki, the Snow Monkey; and Hiroto, the Crane. Together, they track down clues that set them on a collision course with the wicked President Oni and his sly henchman, Kit.
Cheeky and charming, Momotaro and the Magnificent Peach is the inspiring story of one boy who changes the world by standing up for what he believes in. It is also a heartfelt celebration of the power of family, friendship and community, and a timely reminder that we can all play our part in caring for our planet.
This highly-anticipated, fabulous production is brought to sparkling life by director Glen Goei. Momotaro and the Magnificent Peach features a witty book and lyrics by Dwayne Lau and a thrilling new score by Elaine Chan. The incredible cast stars newcomer Ryan Ang as the brave hero, Momotaro together with pantomime favourites Siti Khalijah Zainal and Audrey Luo.
Come and join us at the theatre for a show that will chase your pandemic blues away with a much-needed injection of laughter, hope and good cheer! Don’t miss it!
