Catch PLAYtime! Imagination Station at Esplanade
Venue: Esplanade Theatre Studio
Date: 29 Apr - 15 May
Imagination Station is a theatre performance recommended for 3 - 6 years old as they follow the shy and awkward Jamie on an adventure as he finds his way back home.
One day, Jamie’s world is thrown upside down as he accidentally finds himself aboard an MRT headed to Imagination Station, a place where only imaginary friends go. The train has broken down! Lost and out of his comfort zone, Jamie now must find his own way home. Meeting a few silly characters along the way and some familiar characters from his past, Jamie has to find it in himself to be brave and ask for help. He begins a journey to get the train back in action so he can head home.
Kids will join Jamie as he tackles his challenges and realise that he is stronger then he thinks he is.
The show runs on various timings between 29 Apr to 15 May and is 40 mins with no intermission. Tickets are priced at $20 and is available at esplanade.com.

Tickets are available in pairs and are priced at $48. The experience also includes a 45min play time at The Artground's sensory space - Fungus Humongus featuring a magical forest where everything, from fallen branches to all kinds of fungi, has been scaled up to huge proportions.
