Venue: Sands Theatre, Marina Bay Sands
Date: 10 - 18 Apr 2021
Time: 10.00 am, 12.30 pm, 3.00 pm & 5.30 pm
Fee: $42 (ticket)
Mischief is in full gear this April with Harry the Hat! From the producers of Balloonacy and adapted from the much loved folktale, Caps for Sale, both parents and children are going to be delighted by the warmth, humour and simplicity of this story about a humble cap selling peddler and band of mischievous monkeys.
One afternoon, as the peddler indulges in a nap, he wakes to find that a bunch of monkeys have swiped all the hats he planned to sell and he cannot get them to give his hats back.
Harry the Hat is great for sparking creativity and imagination in children, and guarantees to induce a spontaneous reaction from the children participating.
This is a safe and socially distanced interactive storytelling and is recommended for children under the age of 10.

Venue: Kampung Kampus, 91 Lorong Chencharu, Singapore 769201
Date: 10 Apr & 8 May 2021
Time: 9 am - 1.30 pm
The Earth Oven Pizza Workshop comes with a 30min guided sensory farm tour, to learn about local herbs/vegetables, as well as the opportunity to harvest your very own pizza-making ingredients from our garden.
You are welcome to be creative with your pizza toppings. On top of basic components like cheese and tomato sauce, we offer a wide array of plant-based toppings sourced from our garden and beyond! Some delicious possibilities are blue pea flowers (to colour your dough), mulberry (for a sweet touch on the pizza), papaya (which can shredded and mixed with the cheese), basil (for spice), and kale!
Then we will kick off our wood-fired, plant-based pizza-making experience. You will be taught the process of making pizza dough by hand, including the basic techniques of kneading and proofing dough.
As a finishing touch, you get to bake your pizza in our wood-fired earth oven. Each participant gets to pack home two gourmet pizzas. Please bring containers that are big enough to contain two 7-inch pizzas.
