Lao Jiu: The Musical 《老九》音乐剧
Synopsis
Lao Jiu, a Singapore classic that has stood the test of time, will awake your aspiration to pursue your dream.

Lao Jiu, literally “the ninth child”, is the only son in the family.  An incredibly intelligent boy on track to win a prestigious scholarship, but he finds his true calling in the declining traditional puppetry arts. Torn between his dream and responsibilities, will Lao Jiu follow his heart; or will he cave to the needs of his family, seeking wealth and success?

Lao Jiu: The Musical is adapted from a play by late theatre doyen Kuo Pao Kun. Featuring songs composed and written by local Mandopop luminaries Eric Ng and Xiaohan, this acclaimed musical has moved countless audiences, both young and old.

Directed by The Theatre Practice’s Artistic Director Kuo Jian Hong, Lao Jiu: The Musical returns by popular demand this 2017 to tell a courageous and heartwarming story through a flawless union of song, dance, and various forms of puppetry.

A must watch for all!

《老九》,一部历久弥新的本土经典作品,无论成年或少年,职场人或学生,必将唤醒你追求梦想的冲动。

老九是家里唯一的男丁,上有八个姐姐。这个绝顶优秀的男孩,获得机会考取众人羡慕的奖学金,但他却深深热爱着布袋戏偶表演艺术,想要继承戏偶师傅的事业。面对家人对于他的高度期盼,他必须做出一个艰难的抉择。身处功利至上、艺术被视为奢侈品的年代,老九该忠于自己的最爱,勇于实现梦想;还是迎合众人的意愿,追求荣华富贵?

《老九》出自新加坡已故著名剧作家郭宝崑之手,2012年改编成音乐剧,邀请本地流行乐坛最优词曲搭档黄韵仁和小寒重新填词谱曲,演出获得一致好评。

2017年,循众要求,实践剧场艺术总监郭践红,将带领本地最强档的演艺组合,重新诠释《老九》音乐剧。有你我熟悉的故事、热闹动感的歌舞、绚丽多变的场景,并结合多种偶戏表演。

父母要带孩子,老师要带学生,一起来看!
