TL;DR

Musical TARU is a heart-warming musical that follows the nocturnal adventures of three friends on a quest. Together with museum exhibits which have come to life thanks to the mysterious magic of a lunar eclipse, they go in search of Taru, a baby T-Rex fossil that is missing from its usual location in the museum.

The three young protagonists – siblings Nali and her little brother Gao Feng, and Da Fa (aspiring archaeologist and Nali’s beau, played by Taiwan-based Singaporean singer and actor Wong Jinglun) – arrive at the Natural History Museum to be volunteers for the day. Gao Feng’s knowledge of dinosaurs impresses the museum curator (Ling Xiao, local award-winning veteran singer) and he is chosen to lead the volunteer group.

However, Gao Feng’s mischievous pranks cause them to lose their volunteer positions and they are thrown out of the museum. After realising that they have forgotten to document their volunteer experience and hence will not receive the required points, they sneak into the museum after it closes to take a photo with the exhibits as proof of their work.

The trio get more than they bargain for when they come face-to-face with the museum’s residents who are newly resurrected thanks to a lunar eclipse. There’s Tila, the protective T-Rex mother, Cleopatra, the beautiful and vivacious ancient Egypt matriarch (performed with great aplomb by Taiwanese singer Freya Lim); Mummy, Cleopatra’s sidekick, a couple of neanderthals, Chinese admiral Zheng He and his soldiers, and more dinosaur fossils.

But where’s Taru, the baby T-Rex?

Let Go & Be Entertained

The first-ever theatrical collaboration between Singapore, Taiwan and South Korea, Musical TARU is an adaptation of a 2016 South Korean production. Sit back, relax, and enjoy the entertainment as the story progresses easily through non-stop song and dance routines and visual spectacle. We are still in awe of the cast’s boundless energy!

Do note that the performance is in Mandarin, with subtitles projected on screens on both sides of the stage. However, it is not necessary to understand the language to enjoy the show. Kids around us laughed, squealed, and reached their hands out to the characters at the right moments (though a very little one did get a fright when T-Rex mummy Tila belted out her first roar – be prepared, she’s a bit loud!).

In the end, Musical TARU is an affirmation of friendship and love — values that remain true to our hearts no matter time, dimension, or body we inhabit. Bring the kids to watch it. It’s a great way to start the new year, don’t you think?
