COME BACK HOME is Now Playing at Esplanade

A call from above: come back home! The cats know. The crow knows. The Karung Guni knows... There's someone missing. Through stories and play, soon everyone will know who is hiding, who is lost and who is found.

Come Back Home is a tale that winds through the past and the present to seek out a child who went missing a long time ago. Immersive and theatrical, it draws on the experience of children and adult memories of being a child, to celebrate possibility, place and imagination.

Audiences will be invited to participate in the action as the story unfolds, taking their place in the activity of a vibrant community. When booking, families can choose to be in the seated auditorium (Observer) or on stage (Participant) amidst the adventure.

Come Back Home by Polyglot Theatre is an Esplanade Commission, co-produced by Polyglot Theatre (Australia) and Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay (Singapore) in collaboration with artists in both countries.

Come Back Home was developed through a collaborative process of creation at a distance. Beginning in 2021, artists from Esplanade - Theatres on the Bay and Polyglot Theatre worked together to make a new, participatory experience for and with children.

In this creative experiment, the artists collaborated via remote digital connection and play: sharing skills, stimulating ideas and becoming a creative team. Collaboration with children took place in each country throughout the process.

There will be a pre-show activity at the Singtel Waterfront Theatre foyer 20 minutes before the performance. Do join us early to enjoy the activity.

MusicFest@SGH was conceived with the belief that music has the ability to stimulate the senses, heal, uplift the spirit, and improve a patient’s journey to recovery. It was with this outcome in mind that Sing’theatre and SGH presented the first MusicFest@SGH in 2013 with the support of Novartis.

RENT Comes to Sing'Theatre in July

RENT is an inspiring story about friends and artists struggling in New York City’s East Village and tackles addiction, poverty, and friendship in the height of the AIDS crisis. But most of all the show is about love. This Tony Award winning musical is a favourite of many with famous songs such as “Out Tonight”, “Take Me Or Leave Me” and the classic anthem “Seasons Of Love.” Many have watched the movie but there is nothing compared to watching this inspiring story live on stage.
