Over the weekend, we hopped to Jubilee Hall at Raffles Hotel to catch 'The Ant and the Grasshopper'. This musical is based on the famous Aesop's Fable of the same name. The production was performed by I Theatre.
Ever since our first foray into children musical via Cat in the Hat, we caught the theatre bug. When told we will be watching another musical, our interests had been piqued. The question is.. Will this musical live up to our sky high expectations?
If you had read the story, there are 2 main characters. Mrs Antoinette the Ant and Criminy the Grasshopper. The former is a hard worker who never had time to relax or play and the latter is one who enjoys his carefree day in the Summer sun. Come winter, the tables are turned and nearly led to the end of one.
The stellar cast did well to bring the story across. The Grasshopper was the standout with his crispy clear light-hearted songs. His friends the caterpillar and the pair of buzzing bees provided comedic relief in this light hearted musical.
