GosTan Back - Call for Volunteers


CALL FOR VOLUNTEERS – Be part of our inclusive theatrical show, GosTan Back!

GosTan Back – a time-travelling adventure on wheels, directed by Ian Loy (NAC Young Artist Award Recipient 2014 & Life Theatre Awards Best Director nominee 2017), is a story about a young boy who gets the chance to save the future by going back in time. Participants will experience Singapore’s history and artefacts in this interactive theatrical journey through the National Museum’s Singapore History Gallery, which features storytelling, science, technology and a whole lot of hands-on fun!

GosTan Back is a theatrical production designed to support children with additional needs and their families in experiencing the museum, while encouraging interaction with typically developing children.
