Most of your childhood has probably been all about witnessing the Little Mermaid chase after the guy she’s full on crushing on and Cinderella having an unrealistic shoe size (and shoe) that somehow only fits her. We were all jealous of those kick-ass princesses (even if you don’t want to admit it) and we all wanted our own happy endings. Well now’s your chance to hop right into those tales and experience the magic yourself at 22 Stories!
Tell me more!
We popped on over to this magical world at 200 Pandan Gardens to immerse ourselves in not just one, but twenty two fairy tales! 22 Stories is a production from ANDSOFORTH Jr, the first local immersive theatre company to bring an interactive Instagram museum to Southeast Asia. Dive into the four themed story realms: Storyland, Wonderland, Grimmesneyland and Land of Nights and watch your collective childhoods come to life.
More than just a blast from the past
22 Stories takes place across two sessions on weekends where you’ll get to wander through 13 different doors to experience 22 rooms filled with quirky characters, fun activities and stories. There will be two different sets of characters performing every other week to offer you a fresh fantasy no matter how many times you prick your finger on the spinning wheel. Attend two sessions, one on an odd week, and one on an even week, to enjoy the full experience and meet all the characters from 22 Stories.
Do it for the ‘gram!
Thanks to the mythical backdrops, stunning displays and interactive activities, you and the kiddos get to experience immersive theatre at its finest. Dress the kids up in their most fabulous frills, fanciest gowns and cutest costumes for photo opps galore. You’ll also get half an hour of free time every session to explore or revisit any room you wish while the actors take a break. Wade into the deep sea where you’ll find a glowing ball pit, play croquet with flamingos or slide down Jack’s magic beanstalk! Fun fact: these were specially curated to be a (once upon a) dream for Instagrammers everywhere, so go ahead and snap away.
Delicious noms (not drugged by an evil queen)
Your Instagram feeds aren’t the only ones about to be fed. There’s also a rest area at the back of the venue ‘Wonder Foodland’ catered by Farm Appetit where meals are freshly prepared for you to prevent hangry kids from stopping the show.
