The Gingerbread Man

The original new musical by SRT's The Little Company is a reimagining of the classic tale The Gingerbread Man, an uplifting story about the value of teamwork and friendship, set to rousing music.

Ginger is a giant cookie who walks, talks and most importantly, loves to run, run, RUN as fast as he can! Teamwork is important on the farm where Ginger lives. Unfortunately, Ginger prefers to do things on his own and ends up making a terrible mess. Worst of all he broke his mother, Anya's, most prized possession: the oven.

Under the influence of Sly Fox, Ginger leaves the farm to join the local race, hoping to win a brand new oven for his mother. Of course, Sly Fox's real aim is to find the opportunity to gobble him up! When Anya and the farm animals realise Ginger is in danger, they come to his rescue. To defeat the fox, Ginger must learn how to work as a team.

With vibrant songs and lots of action, this fun-filled musical is sure to delight children of all ages.

Sweeney Todd

Tony and Olivier Award-winning actress Lea Salonga (Miss Saigon) returns to Singapore to star in one of the greatest musicals of all time – Sweeney Todd. This tasty, thrilling, theatrical treat has simultaneously shocked, awed and delighted audiences across the world since it first opened on Broadway, where it won eight Tony Awards (including Best Musical).

2019 celebrates the 40th anniversary of this spectacular musical, written and composed by the legendary Stephen Sondheim - winner of an Academy Award, eight Grammy Awards, eight Tony Awards, a Pulitzer Prize and a Laurence Olivier Award. Some of his best known works include West Side Story, Company, Pacific Overtures, Sunday in the Park with George and Into the Woods.

This is the infamous tale of an unjustly accused barber who returns from exile seeking vengeance against the lecherous Judge Turpin who framed him. The road to revenge leads Sweeney Todd to Mrs. Lovett, a resourceful proprietress of a failing pie shop. Mrs. Lovett's luck sharply shifts when Todd's thirst for blood inspires the integration of an ingredient into her meat pies that has the people lining up... and that’s just the beginning of the carnage!
