The Happiness Box Musical Adaptation

Sat & Sun, 22 & 23 May

Enjoy the serenity of the Changi Chapel in the morning while listening to an orchestral recording of The Happiness Box, a book originally written in 1942 for the children who were interned in Changi Prison, by Australian POW David Griffin and illustrated by fellow POW Leslie Greener.

The Happiness Box tells the story of three best friends – a lizard, a monkey and a frog, who find a magical box and journey through the jungle to discover the secret of happiness.

Experience the wonder, trepidation and delight of the friends’ adventure in this musical adaptation, originally performed by the Melbourne Symphony Orchestra and narrated by actor Stephen Curry.
