September School Holiday Activities 2014

The September school holiday is round the corner! Although it is only one week, the kids still have to be entertained or rather, I want to spend precious bonding time with them. It will be a short week but there are so many things going on everywhere, we are spoilt for choice! Here is a list of those that I find will interest me and my kids, and like-minded parents out there 🙂

1. Geronimo Stilton at UE Square

Geronimo Stilton

When: 3 – 15 Sept (except 9 Sept no show)
Mondays to Fridays : 2pm and 7pm
Weekends : 2pm, 5pm and 7pm
Happening at: UE Square (our favourite mall for being super child-friendly)
Ticketing: Free

I know many kids love Geronimo Stilton books. Now, Geronimo Stilton ‘Live’ show is happening for the first time in Singapore! Kids can look forward to an engaging mousey adventure filled with games, dance, songs and a whole lot of fun! Get your paws ready to tap and clap along! There is a Meet and Greet session too. Just queue for the Meet and Greet pass from 1 hour before the show.

2. Roald Dahl’s Little Red Riding Hood with SSO

Roald Dahl
When: 13 Sept (Sat) 2pm and 4pm; 14 Sept (Sun) 2pm
Happening at: Victoria Theatre
Ticketing: Click here

“The forest. Strange. Eerie. Mysterious. A place of magic and surprise…”

So begins the orchestra version of Roald Dahl’s delightful Little Red Riding Hood. There’s a wolf, a grandma and a little girl in a red cape. But Roald Dahl has spiced things up. This feisty Little Red certainly doesn’t need a hunter to save her from any wolf! Roald Dahl’s bizarre imagination is brought to life in Dandi Production’s sparkling presentation. Paul Patterson’s score entertains from start to finish with its modern sensibilities and its dazzling dramatic flourishes, inspired by Dahl’s famous text.

3. The Nightingale by SRT’s The Little Company

When: 1 Aug – 14 Sept
Happening at: DBS Art Centre
Ticketing: Click here

SRT’s The Little Company brings you a refreshing new take on Hans Christian Andersen’s well-loved fairy tale. Directed by Kate Golledge (Red Riding Hood, 2013), The Nightingale is a joyful burst of song that reminds us all to appreciate and value the world around us.

Enchanted by the lilting birdsong of the plain-looking, brown Nightingale, the little Emperor of China captures and keeps her in a gilded cage for his daily entertainment. But soon, along with her freedom, the beautiful voice of the Nightingale is lost and a singing mechanical bird replaces her.
Will she survive her days in captivity? Will she ever fly freely again? Join the Nightingale and friends in their quest for her freedom. With catchy rhymes, beautiful music and clever dialogue, it is a ‘trill-ing’ show that will definitely captivate young audiences.

4. Panda Party at River Safari

  1. I don’t know why you get a full week off in September, but that’s awesome!

    Mr. T just went back to school this week – we do have a national holiday on Monday, but that’s it – no big breaks until November (for Thanksgiving holiday for us).

    Enjoy the time!

    • We have 2 long school holidays in June and December and 2 short ones in March and Sept for just one week each. When the kids are having holiday, parents will be busy haha! But I think in US, you have a longer break than we do 🙂

  2. I love your school holiday suggestions. Kidspot! That’s on our list but every time we go it’s so busy. I’m sort of waiting for the initial rush to die down but they’re obviously too awesome for that to happen very quickly! If it doesn’t settle soon we’ll just have to roll up our sleeves and go anyway.

    Meantime, the kids are really into Roald Dahl at the moment (at least P is). I’ll pass that over to Æ for his consideration.

Leave your thoughts! I'll love to hear them!
