Glooba-who? [Giveaway: tickets for a musical by Gloobaloo & friends]

January 22, 2013

Did you know we have a homegrown mascot who stages musical performances?

I’ve always loved our very own mascots. I grew up with Singa the Courtesy Lion, Sharity Elephant, Teamy the Productivity Bee, and POSB’s Smiley Squirrel. If you have no clue what I’m talking about, you probably didn’t grow up here. These guys gave us some wonderful memories of singalongs and dance performances at school assemblies.

Nowadays, our kids see some huggables that are quite different. Meet Gloobaloo, a curious alien from Planet Global who has travelled to earth on his Big Boat Spaceship. He’s here to make new friends and learn all about Planet Earth and her environment. Every journey is filled with exciting adventures as he goes about trying to solve problems with his creative and magical ways.

Gloobaloo and Friends

And he’s back to stage his second musical this March at Kallang Theatre, following a successful first performance last October. Last year’s show, In the Ocean with Gloobaloo, also raised S$10,000 in support of the Children’s Cancer Foundation.

This year, Gloobaloo and his friends will bring you on a musical journey into the Enchanted Forest in a performance filled with original songs and energetic dance choreography. Gloobaloo and his friends, Chirpy, Grumpy and Wikki Zikki,  need to search for the Fire Dragon that is destroying the plant life in the forest. Come journey with them and see how this exciting story unfolds! Now, if only Singa the Lion, Sharity Elephant and Teamy the Bee could all be guest stars, that would be a blast from the past indeed!

    My favorite home grown mascot is Singa the Courtesy Lion!! So happen that there is one big statue of him standing at the entrance of Jurong Regional Library, so my 3yo son loves him too! Every time i bring him there, he will request to “hug” and say hello to Singa! 🙂

    We love Sharity Elephant because he cares for others who are less fortunate or well-to-do around him sdn we do too. And pink rocks!
