“From Page to Stage®” Programme 2023:
Killer Thriller

“From Page to Stage®” is a comprehensive Learning & Participation theatre education platform in English. Presented since 2009, this is probably the longest-running theatre-in-education production in the city for a large capacity audience. Tailor made for local secondary school students, the programme also provides in-school pre- and post-performance workshops. We aim to nurture students’ interest in classic literature and an appreciation of the arts.

Killer Thriller is the 15th production of the “From Page to Stage®” Programme and makes a welcome post-pandemic return to the stage by Artistic Director, Dr Vicki Ooi as both playwright and director. We were thrilled to experience the laughter, applause and delight of a live audience again after a break of a year and a half. The entire cast and production team members were delighted to be back to work both on- and off-stage.

The drama has subtitles for us to follow and is an incredibly fun way to encourage us to learn English.
