For a night of magic, dance and splendour,
don’t miss Gateway Theatre’s The Nutcracker!
Get ready to be enchanted and enthralled with the Fascinating Retelling of The Nutcracker!
A Brand new take on an old Christmas classic, The Nutcracker features enchanting magical performances by local artists; incorporating captivating music, dance, special effects and magic!!!
Produced and presented by Gateway Entertainment and P’Art 1 Design, The Nutcracker will transport you into a magical world of the timeless classic. Now seen through a different lens, The Nutcracker offers a unique and fresh experience; a one-of-a-kind treat for the senses. The performance will infuse spectacular magic, special effects, video animation, and costumes (my fav part!!) that will capture your imagination and bring this wonderful tale to life.
The magical, theatrical production is directed by Fan Dong Kai, who incorporates world-class illusions performed by award-winning illusionists and father-daughter duo Lawrence and Priscilla Khong. This is the first time the magic duo is staging a performance that has no narration or dialogue, and will rely solely on the art of magic, dance and state-of-the-art technology to tell the story. It will also combine classical music arranged in a modern style by renowned music director Kenn C.
The retelling of the old Christmas classic will be the largest scale performance to be held at Gateway Theatre to date with an international dance troupe of 14 dancers and over 50 backstage production crew. The Nutcracker promises to take you on a magical adventure, that will dazzle your senses and touch your heart along the way.
Here are some sneaks to the show!
Overall, I give props to the team behind the Nutcracker for the breath-taking set design and really amazing costumes that added so much more to the show! I could tell that the kids in the crowd really enjoyed themselves and were captivated at every twist and turn.
(Although I do wish that the plot could have been stronger and the magic tricks newer/more refreshing)
Nonetheless, some great work put up by our local artistes that we should support!
