Behind the Scenes: MindChamps PreSchool 2017 K2 Musical Graduation Concert

October 31, 2017

It has always been a tradition at MindChamps PreSchool for Champs of all levels (from playgroup to Kindergraten 2) to perform in a musical production under the guidance of their teachers during the year-end graduation concert.

This year, however, some of our preschool centres will be doing things differently by coming together to present a graduation concert exclusively for the Kindergarten 2 (K2) Champs.

For the first time ever, 120 graduating Champs from six MindChamps PreSchool centres – Changi Business Park, Leisure Park Kallang, Paragon, Serangoon, Toa Payoh and ZhongShan Park – will come together to perform in Mother Earth is Missing, a musical especially written for MindChamps PreSchool.

What you need to know about Mother Earth is Missing – the Musical

What would you do if you woke up one day to find that Mother Earth was missing, and that a worldwide effort was needed to convince her to return?

Directed by MindChamps PreSchool’s very own Paulene Smith and Heather McCloud, who have decades of theatrical and performing experience between them, Mother Earth is Missing is a showcase for our young Champs’ creativity and talent.

Every MindChamps PreSchool Champ has a part to play, a song to sing and a dance to dance – and together, these weave perfectly into a once-in-a-lifetime magical experience.

Using a TV news and multimedia format, our Champs will be reporting the sightings from all corners of the globe, highlighting different cultures and providing suggestions for healing the planet.

Through a series of dance, song and spoken word, they take us on a journey from desolation to hope and from sadness to joy.

Through their performance, they will also educate us to break through the tough times and move forward to the happy times ahead.
