Get ready for homegrown theatre company Wild Rice’s first virtual fundraising gala! The Wild Rice Ball, now in its 19th edition, has distinguished itself as one of Singapore’s most entertaining and creative fundraising events. This year’s virtual Rice Ball promises to be as fun-filled and WILD as ever – from our trademark all-star concert, through to the delivery of a gastronomic feast by Singapore’s finest chefs to your doorstep.
For this milestone event, the Rice Ball will be live-streamed directly from The Ngee Ann Kongsi Theatre into the homes of guests, together with some of Singapore’s most exciting artists such as acclaimed film-maker and multimedia designer Brian Gothong Tan. The evening’s live concert will be co-directed by Glen Goei and Pam Oei, with a line-up featuring some of Singapore theatre’s best and brightest, with a special appearance by “Ivana and Glenda”.
Wild Rice, like all other major theatre companies from around the world, looks to the generosity and support of benefactors, patrons and sponsors in order to do its work. All funds raised from the Ball will go directly towards securing the company’s future in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic.
Virtual private rooms for the Rice Ball – bringing together up to 10 guests signing in from anywhere in the world – are available for $8,000, $10,000, $15,000 and $25,000. Individuals may also reserve single seats for $1,000.
