Ever had the urge, during a play, to yell out to the characters what you think they should do? You’ll get your chance in Scenes Festival, put together by Drama Box in celebration of its 25th anniversary this year. It’s called ‘forum theatre’, and the local troupe is something of a specialist in the form, having staged such productions – even in the heartlands – since its inception. Forum theatre usually involves a cast of oppressed characters who cause a series of conflicts. Audience members are encouraged to stop the play at a point at which they think a character could’ve handled a situation differently, and are given the chance to change it.
Loke Hong Seng: A Social Portrait of Singapore
The local photographer captures the development of Singapore between 1963 and 1985 – including the fight for independence to modernisation – in his solo exhibition, showcasing photos that have never been displayed before.
Peter and Blue's Birthday Party
Singapore Dance Theatre returns with this hour-long children’s ballet production combining magic and morals. Look out for familiar characters like Peter, his dog Blue, his cat Calico and their forest friends as they embark on yet another exciting adventure. There are also a range of activities after the show, such as balloon-sculpting and photo-taking sessions.

5 of the best photography spots
Kampong Buangkok Photo: GRPS It’s a far trek out, but it’s well worth the effort for a good picture. Chickens scratch in the muddy shade of jackfruit and banana trees in this traditional village of wooden houses. But go soon: the clock is ticking as watchful developers turn their eyes to Singapore’s last remaining kampong. From Buangkok or Hougang MRT, take a taxi to Lorong Buangkok, along Gerald Drive Little India Photo: Singapore Tourism Board Colourful street-life scenes can be captured any day of the week in this lively part of town, but Sunday is when the area really pulses with with activity. For the best shots, head to Buffalo Road and Campbell Lane, where bright rows of jasmine garlands hang next to heady spices and clay oil lamps. Little India MRT Punggol Beach Calling all nature photographers! With its L-shaped jetty and moss-covered rocks peeping out from the blanket of sand at low-tide this undeveloped shore is one of the few places where you can see fishermen casting nets and setting crab cages. From Punggol MRT, take a taxi or bus 82 to the end of Punggol Rd Chinatown Photo: Singapore Tourism Board Look past the ‘doll’s house’ renovations of the major tourist streets and you’ll find signs of old-style Singapore – a Taoiststyle deity-statue maker at work in Mohamed Ali Lane, barbers sharpening razors in side alleys near Thian Hock Keng Temple, and seniors playing checkers of comparing songbirds next to Sago Lane.
