Not easy to stage Sentosa's new night show
Wings of Time
Sentosa's signature night extravaganza, Wings of Time, welcomes locals and overseas guests alike with a one-of-a-kind performance

Most evenings, you can find Mr Zuhairi Mohamed Idris on Siloso Beach at Sentosa.

Mr Zuhairi, 26, is one of the performers at Sentosa's new night show, Wings Of Time, a multimedia production with majestic water effects, fireworks and light projections.

And unlike many productions where performers just need to play one character in a production, the cast of Wings Of Time have to work extra hard as they are expected to know the script for multiple characters because they may play different roles from night to night.

"Some of the outdoor performance trainings were especially tiring because of the hot weather in Singapore," said Mr Zuhairi, who does not only act in the show but also takes turns to be the show coordinator. "But all in all, it was still very fun."

Wings Of Time tells the story of Felix and Rachel, who are taken on a journey through time by a mystical bird-like creature named Shahbaz.

The cast includes a team of 20 performers, seven of whom perform at any given time.

Mr Zuhairi said he went through a two-day audition for the show two months before it was launched.

"The audition was supposed to last for only a day, but due to the number (of people auditioning), they had to extend it to two days," said Mr Zuhairi.

But that was the easy part.
