Singapore Repertory Theatre

Nursery Crimes

17 Oct - 30 Nov 2018 KC Arts Centre - Home of SRT


Polly Piper is bored. It's raining outside and she's played with all her toys a million times.

After wishing she was "anywhere but here" Polly uncovers a magical doorway into Miny Moe - an amazing world filled with Nursery Rhyme characters. As King Cole's newly appointed chief detective, Polly must solve the puzzle of why this strange world is so topsy turvy and naughty crimes have sprung up everywhere. Jack and Jill have lost their memories, Humpty has been pushed from the wall and it looks like Bo Peep's sheep might have been kidnapped.

As Polly gathers clues along the way she meets new friends, solves puzzles and helps others.

Can Polly find the culprit in time? Will she stop the madness, save the kingdom and receive her big reward? Keeping her wits about her, Polly must go on a journey of mystery and friendship through a wonderful world of colour and imagination.

Written and directed by Kate Golledge and Ellis Kerkhoven, and featuring a line up of familiar nursery rhyme characters, Nursery Crimes will delight and entertain adventurous minds.

"Fractured nursery rhymes challenges children in thinking out-of-the-box and encourages them to view things from a different perspective."
– Lynette Fang, Vice-Principal, The Little Skool House International (At-Outram)  

Recommended for 4 year-olds and above.
