SINGAPORE - This year, Wild Rice adapts the 19th-century classic A Christmas Carol for its annual Christmas pantomime. A $ingapore Carol tells the tale of a crazy rich Asian visited by three ghosts and runs from Nov 23 to Dec 15 at the Victoria Theatre.

The family-friendly production is directed by Hossan Leong and stars Sebastian Tan as the miserly Singaporean multi-millionaire S. K. Loo, whose tight fist loosens by the end of the play. Both also worked together in Wild Rice's 2008 pantomime Snow White And The Seven Dwarves, where Leong directed and Tan played the wicked stepmother.
