Peter and the Starcatcher!
Pangdemonium is proud to present PETER AND THE STARCATCHER, a hilarious, hair-raising, and heart-warming prequel to the Peter Pan legend, and a celebration of the innocence, imagination and resilience of the Child.
We join Molly, a precocious young Starcatcher-in-training, and three orphans (including a homeless, nameless lad known as ‘Boy’) on a secret mission –a perilous voyage across seas infested by treacherous pirates, fearsome savages, and dubious mermaids, to a faraway island ruled by the evil King Zarboff.
All for the sake ofthe mystical, mythical “starstuff,” a celestial substance so powerful, it must never fall into the wrong hands. With the dastardly Black Stache in hot pursuit, the vengeful Fighting Prawn and Hawking Clam lurking in the deep, and the mysterious Mr Grin hungry for his next meal, will the children survive the dangers, find the elusive Neverland and live happily ever after?

DBS-Pangdemonium NextGen Education Programme
The DBS-Pangdemonium NextGen Education Programme provides learning opportunities with industry professionals with the mission of cultivating the next generation of theatre practitioners. Here is our line up for 2018.
The Write Here Write Now Playwriting Mentorship is a year-long one-on-one mentorship with Stephanie Street to write a full length play. Stephanie Street is Pangdemonium’s Playwright-in-Residence and also wrote Dragonflies, commissioned by the Singapore International Festival of the Arts (SIFA) in 2017. Dragonflies will also be restaged by Pangdemonium this year, as part of their 2018 season.
For those who like to sing, dance and act, we have the Triple Threats Musical Theatre Workshop – an intensive 2-week long training session in June mentored by US-trained actor and professional Musical Theatre teacher Caleb Goh, and Musical Director Joanne Ho. It will culminate in a showcase for friends and family! This workshop is for 13 – 19 year olds only.

Perspectives Film Festival
Perspectives is an annual arts event that features breakthrough films that are thematically curated. Now in its eleventh year, the festival is an annual practicum course run by the faculty of the Wee Kim Wee School of Communication and Information (WKWSCI).
Perspectives is organised by undergraduates from the Nanyang Technological University (NTU) and is the first and longest student-run film festival in Singapore. This year’s festival will be held at the National Museum of Singapore and Alliance Francaise from October 25 to 28.
Perspectives Film Festival: Breakthroughs in Cinema explores the theme of Institutions — systems of power that govern and transcend the individual. This year, Perspectives tests the limits of the individual against the limits of their institutions. The curated films seek to capture this perpetual tension, guided by a simple premise: no one is isolated enough to resist organization, yet no institution is formidable enough to remain unchallenged.
