A multi-sensory experience

MUD is not just a visual feast, but a multi-sensory activity that delights all your senses! It infuses traditional theatre form with modern theatrical technology — the well-designed costumes, colourful props, amazing lights and dumbfounding music are creatively put together to give you a show to remember!

Highly interactive with audience participation

Of course, your MUD experience will not be complete without your very own participation. At the end of the show, guests are encouraged to dance, interact and have photo sessions with the cast on stage. You don’t normally get to do this in other plays, so don’t let this once-in-a-lifetime opportunity slip away.
