ICSS was proud to stage Major Event 2018: The Infinite Wallace Young on the 24th of February this year at the Imperial College Great Hall.
A tribute to Major Event over the years as ICSS celebrates its 35th anniversary, this year’s production, “The Infinite Wallace Young”, was a fourth-wall-breaking comedy that explored the theme of finding yourself and writing your own story. The plot revolved around average Singaporean Wallace Young’s rebellion against a cruel Narrator, who forced him into several different stories set in the Singaporean multiverse. The setting of each story fell into a different point in Singapore’s history and gave the audience members a chance to explore our heritage and see what Singapore was, is and could be.
Major Event is known for its showcase of our members’ talent and it delivered once again this year. This year’s show presented a script, live music, complex dances and breath-taking props and sets that were all crafted by our own members. Our performers and crew members have dedicated their sincere efforts over the past five months into making this show what it is, forging strong friendships along the way. Though our Major Event journey may have ended with our curtain call, it’s heartening to know that the beautiful memories we all made will continue to live on.
A lucky draw was held alongside this year’s Major Event and the lucky winner walked away with a grand prize of 1 x Economy Class Return Ticket from London to Singapore (vice versa) on Singapore Airlines. This prize was proudly sponsored by Singapore Airlines and was presented by Mr Sheldon Hee, Singapore Airlines’ General Manager, UK & Ireland, to the lucky winner.
We would like to thank the Deputy High Commissioner of Singapore to the UK, Ms Rozana Bte Abdul Majid, for making some time in her busy schedule to come down to watch our show, along with our audience who came down to watch and support us. We would also like to express our gratitude to the performers and crew who worked so tirelessly to make this show possible.
We would also like to thank the following sponsors for making this event possible.
We hope you all enjoyed your Major Event 2018 experience and hope to see you next year!
