Hanuman – The Superhero Monkey…Go watch now with your cuties!

In this digital world, our kids are familiar expert in watching movies, playing games and other forms of entertainment. But Live Stage Shows win hands down when it comes to making kids truly deliriously happy!

Singapore Repertory Theatre’s (SRT) Hanuman – The Superhero Monkey gives kids one such super fun experience!

We all know Hanuman as the monkey God. He is the one who didn’t leave any stone unturned to unite Sita with Lord Ram. Ramayana could never be complete without Hanuman.

SRT’s The Little Company brings Hanuman – The Superhero Monkey in a refreshingly new form. The show is created in collaboration with the UK’s  Imitating the Dog, who bring their unique theatre style to this epic tale adapted from the Ramayana, and featuring music by Soumik Datta, one of the biggest new music talents in UK.

When Parveen of SRT invited us to watch and review the show, Kids were so excited. They knew the story of Ramayana and were eager to see their favorite characters on the stage!

On a part windy, part sunny, part rainy afternoon, We reached SRT. Hanuman is a similar experience – a refreshing new take on Ramayana that is partly musical, partly theatre with a generous dose of film, cartoon and multimedia.

The theatre was full of kids, parents, grandparents…Wow! indeed this show is for all age groups.

The attention of the audience was captivated right from the start. Quite an unique way of introducing characters and in the blink of an eye the stage was changing its forms… Hanuman and his lovable gang of monkey friends took us along with them on the journey to rescue Sita, defeat Ravana and we all keep our eyes glued on the stage, clap and sing with them and for them.

Here comes Hanuman – the Superhero Monkey

and this is the lovable band of friends who can make anything possible!

Hanuman and his friends are good hearted, they are naughty, they are a bit scaredy and very humane. But when time comes…they evolve, recognize their superhero powers, show extraordinary courage, display the true spirit of friendship and emerge as winners by destroying evil Ravana! Now this is what as a parent, I would like my kids to do. 🙂 🙂

They can be fierce too…

The show duration is around 55 minutes. It was great to see kids laughing, responding, singing and dancing with Hanuman and his friends. Two thumbs to the actors! It’s not that easy to win over kids and engage them.

After the show, we got an opportunity to click photo with the cast. Oh yeah, please note that during the show, no photos are allowed! Anyways, it is best to focus and enjoy the show without any interruptions.

    I remember being enthralled by the tale of Hanuman when I was in secondary school. This must be a really nice show.

  12. Renae Teo Reply

    Though I have never seen this before, but it does look like its something both adult and children alike can enjoy. 🙂

    You are correct! It takes more skill to be able to keep kids engaged and reacting positively to a play almost an hour long. I don’t think I know this story, so I hope they also stage something like this here in our country.

    I’ve always loved the theater and would love my kids to feel the same way about it. I would love to watch Hanuman too one day. I wonder if the local theater companies here would franchise it.

  15. Mommy Roxi Reply

    This would be a great field trip for me and my homeschooler to do! Be exposed in the art of theater and actually watch something interactive.

    It looks like a great show, with the way the stage and actors are seen through your photos. I have heard of this story before but I seem to have forgotten all about it. I need to refresh myself. 🙂

    That’s an amazing experience not only for the kids but for the parents as well. I am not familiar with the tale but it’s a great way to encourage kids to reach their goals and overcome the challenges they face!

    Looks like a great show to watch both for kids and adults alike. I love the theatre and make it a point to watch regularly. The Superhero Monkey is one show that would be good for kids as it depicts the triumph of good over evil and the value of true friendships, something that kids can emulate. Thanks for sharing this!

    This sounds like an amazing show for kids – and a good refresher for my own Ramayana knowledge. Turning Hanuman into a superhero is a great way to keep the story relevant. From what I can tell from your photos, it’s been an amazing experience!
