Book: OddSocks Theater Show Tickets

Expect more live performances during the March school holidays. Besides those of March The children’s festival at the Esplanade, there’s OddSocks, the original Five Stones Theater production, at the Gateway Theatre’s Black Box.

Recommended for families with children ages 3-10, the show aims to empower people to be brave and embrace their unique identity, no matter how hard it may seem.

OddSocks is conceptualized and directed by Isabella Chiam, with original music composed by August Lum. It is developed as part of non-profit arts organization Gateway Arts’ Springboard program, which helps emerging arts collectives and groups develop their work and present it to a wider audience. It was first introduced in 2019 to a small number of families.

“The story of OddSocks resonated with us because it shares an important message about accepting differences in a world where everyone is unique,” said Gateway Arts Artistic Director Samantha Scott-Blackhall. “OddSocks is a bit silly and a lot of fun, while simply but fittingly reminding the whole family that it’s okay to look different, act different or be different.”

The show runs from March 17-20. Get tickets for $30 each (excluding booking fees) from Sistic.

After the live performances, the show will be available to stream online for preschools, primary schools, voluntary social welfare organizations and corporate groups, who can book directly with Gateway Arts.
