We brought the girls and their grandparents to catch Ge Tai The Musical and we are summing up our experience at the musical with these 3 reasons why you should consider bringing your family along to catch it.
3 Reasons To Catch Ge Tai The Musical
A cultural experience (without the heat)
In the past years, I’ve wanted to bring my girls to experience our local Getai culture during the seventh month. But being the old school mum (for some invalid reasons), I never did step out in the night during the seventh month with my girls. So this Getai experience is a great opportunity to show them a different kind of music experience. I’ve to say their expression when the show started was priceless. – stunt
Old School Entertainment for our Seniors
This was our second experience at a live stage performance with my parents, and they enjoyed it! Entertained by the familiar tunes from their days and singing along. Of cos, with some beer to help chase away the shyness (like most Singaporeans) and kick in the groove.
