Step aside Toy Story – there's another story with toys coming to life. Andsoforth returns with another immersive theatrical dining experience, welcoming guests to join Marie and the Nutcracker this holiday season. Witness the toys rise up against the Mouse King and his army for the key to the Kingdom of Sweets – and possibly the sweetest wedding affair. Let the magical world of Marie's imagination unravel before your eyes as you tuck into a 4-course meal inspired by the cuisines from Nuremberg and ETA Hoffman's The Nutcracker. As per Andsoforth's previous hush-hush gigs, it's held at a secret location where guests will receive an SMS with details of the exact venue at least 24-hours before the show.

The Necessary Stage's most celebrated play – Off Centre – is making a comeback. Debuted in 1993, the Haresh Sharma play helmed by Alvin Tan spotlights how mental illness is regarded in Singapore, and is still as relevant today as it was 25 years ago. It follows the unlikely friendship between Saloma and Vinod and their experiences dealing with their personal conflicts and social prejudices against mental health. This year's revival also sees the return of the original leads – Sakinah Dollah and Abdulattif Abdullah reprising their 1993 roles as the protagonists Saloma and Vinod respectively.
