Lighting Design l Programming
A rambunctious musical inspired by the legendary competition at the heart of the Chinese Zodiac!
All the animals in the Heavenly Kingdom get fighting fit to take part in the big race hosted by the Jade Emperor.
To make it across the finish line, contestants must survive diabolical detours, a raging river… and one another.
Every animal is raring to go, and ready to fight until the bitter end.
Because this is no ordinary race. It’s a chance for everlasting glory – the opportunity to become a legend.
Only 12 coveted prizes are up for grabs.
And only one animal will emerge the ultimate champion.
Directed with joyous humour by Glen Goei,
The Amazing Celestial Race features a wickedly funny script by Dwayne Lau
and heartwarming original songs by Julian Wong.
