In the woods, Peter meets curious characters like the Blueberry Boys, Apple Blossom Girls, Mr & Mrs Strawberry, and more... but all these enchanting forest creatures are only visible to those with do good deeds!
How charming! Stan & I were tickled pink when the Singapore Dance Theatre's Artistic Director, Janek Schergen, related the story of Peter and Blue's Forest Adventures to us ~ a story he's written from "taking a little bit from here & there", but especially inspired by a Swedish children's writer he grew up with.
Also joining us today was a very nervous Peter, the latest addition to SDT. He's 20-year-old Naoki Kataoka from Japan. He had a certain wide-eyed innocence about him, I swear! *LOL* That's probably why Janek picked him to dance the role of the young boy.
Our third guest was Singapore-born Ginny Chan plays Peter's lazy cat, Calico. "When Janek first told me about the role, he said 'I need you to do one thing: You need to be very, very, VERY lazy'!" Ginny reveals with a chuckle, admitting it's harder than it sounds.
Personally, another reason I'd go watch this would be the set. Designed by a student of Lasalle College of the Arts, it promises to be stunning. This SDT production is suitable for kids 4 years & up, and plays through the weekend including Mother's Day, so why not make it a family outing?
