City Nomads Top 5 Recommended Events this May on Peatix

Decisions, decisions and so much to choose from. Well, to help you plan your May activities, we’ll give you a little hand. Here’s our top 5 event picks for this month. Enjoy!

 

1. The Pajama Game

The Pajame Game
Based on the novel 7½ Cents by Richard Bissel, the Pajama Game is a classic musical of the American Broadway theatre. Against the backdrop of workers striking over a 7½ cent pay raise in a pyjama factory, the plot sees parallel love stories between Babe and Sid (the grievance committee head and the new factory supervisor), as well as between Hines, the jealous factory time-keeper and his irrepressible girlfriend, the flirtatious Gladys Hotchkiss. Performed by the students of LASALLE’s musical theatre programme, expect to laugh to your heart’s content and be amazed by the spell-binding music.

The Pajama Game is taking place on Wednesday, 6 May to Saturday, 9 May at the Singapore Airlines Theatre, LASALLE College of the Arts.

2. GEYLANG

Geylang by Young and W!LD, division of WILD Rice
Brought to you by W!ld Rice’s youth division, young & W!LD, GEYLANG is an intoxicating interplay of six original stories revolving around Singapore’s most colourful district. In this powerful narrative of fictitious history, a pair of lovers rebel against the odds, mediums and mamasans prey on lost souls, mothers lose their children, landowners trade away their heritage, a government official is bounded by nostalgia, and a gangster is trapped in the quicksand of drugs and violence.

GEYLANG is taking place on Wednesday, 13 May to Sunday, 17 May at 10 Square @ Orchard Central

3. FULL STEAM AHEAD

Full Steam Ahead
Cross the chilled-out vibes of Venice Beach with Miami’s crazy parties – what do you get? Loads of fun, that’s what! Inspired by the wacky beach culture of America, Full Steam Ahead is an Indie-Disco rave at Tanjong Beach Club. Besides uber cool DJs – like Aeroplane and LouLou Players from Belgium, Joaqim from France, and Singaporean sound-meister weelikeme – rocking the dance floor, there’ll be other one-of-a-kind fringe activities such as tie-dye stations, beer pong, sunset yoga sessions, and even snake charmers to add to the atmosphere.

FULL STEAM AHEAD is taking place on Saturday, 23 May from 12pm to 3am at Tanjong Beach Club.

4. Vocal Edge with WAB

Vocal Edge
Hailing from Toulouse, the eclectic WAB (one-fifth of WAB and the Funky Machine) will be showing off his diverse vocal skills at Aliwal Arts Centre. All that this talented maestro needs is a microphone and some effect units to essentially transform himself into a one-man instrument, so don’t be surprised if you find yourself grooving to his extensive mix of Afro-beats, Funk, and Jazz.

Vocal Edge with WAB is taking place on Saturday, 23 May from 7.30pm to 9pm at The A Capella Society, Aliwal Arts Centre.

5. Jonah

Jonah
Inspired by the biblical tale of Jonah – who ran away when he was called by God and is found alive even though he was swallowed whole bya fish – and written by Riccardo and Praveena Cartelli, this thought-provoking play is a take on the mind’s ability and capacity to believe in the unbelievable. Nora and Mark are two characters who continuously clash due to their very different personalities. But as they keep on disagreeing, Mark manages to slip inside Nora’s mind to uncover the never-ending realm of sanity and insanity.

Jonah is taking place on Friday, 29 May to Saturday, 30 May from 8pm to 9pm at 10 Square @ Orchard Central.
