“A Spoonful of Sherman’ is a new musical stage show that will be making its Asian Premiere in Singapore, with songs from the famous Oscar-Winning brothers: Richard M. Sherman and Robert B. Sherman. Featuring a highly-talented cast including Aaron Khaled, George Chan, Hossan Leong, Mina Ellen Kaye & Vanessa Kee, this show is sure to dazzle audiences and leave you humming along to the tunes.

A Spoonful of Sherman is a musical revue created by Robert J. Sherman which celebrates three generations of his song writing family’s century-long musical journey.


Fresh from the West End, A Spoonful of Sherman is making its Asian Premiere right here in Singapore! Featuring Oscar-winning songs from films such as Mary Poppins, Chitty Chitty Bang Bang, The Jungle Book and Winnie the Pooh, which have entertained the world for more than 60 years, this musical revue is sure to take you on a nostalgic trip down memory lane!


So who were the Sherman Brothers?

Robert and Richard Sherman were the sons of Al Sherman (1897-1973), a highly-prolific songwriter himself, who wrote songs for the likes of Frank Sinatra, Ella Fitzgerald and many singers of the Golden American Songbook period.


Staying loyal to the family tradition, his sons have carried on his legacy of music-making. Since 1964, Robert and Richard’s partnership has produced music for dozens of films, which include well-loved Disney classics like Mary Poppins, The Jungle Book and The Aristocats. Till this day, the Sherman Brothers remain one of the most critically-acclaimed songwriting duos in family entertainment history.


“With tremendous success from the UK run & the strong family values, amazing songs and the message of togetherness it promotes, A Spoonful of Sherman fits perfectly with the values of Sing’theatre and we had to bring it to Singapore!” says Executive producer and Sing’theatre founder Nathalie Ribette.


“A Spoonful of Sherman is a unique show that presents a wide selection of songs and emotions to explore. The actors have to jump into many different characters, which requires a huge amount of skill. We are so fortunate to have some of the best Musical Theatre talents that Singapore has to offer.


Not only do they need to be amazing singers, dancers and actors, they also need to play musical instruments as all of the music in the show is played by the cast on stage! This is a rare opportunity to experience such a show in Singapore!” says TJ Taylor, Director of A Spoonful of Sherman.

A Spoonful of Sherman is written by Robert B. Sherman’s son, Robert J. Sherman, who brought the story of the Sherman family’s award-winning, century-long musical journey to UK audiences in 2018. Three generations of Sherman songwriters are brought to life in this delightful show, which includes songs from Robert J. Sherman’s own charming musical, Love Birds, which premiered at the Edinburgh Fringe in 2015.

A Spoonful of Sherman is a treat for audiences of all ages. The songs, heartfelt and nostalgic, are relevant even today, as the Sherman Brothers themselves wrote, "There's so much that we share, that it's time we're aware, it's a small world after all. " At the center of this show is family, and indeed A Spoonful of Sherman hopes to bring across this message of kinship and togetherness this November.

Come share a Spoonful of Sherman with us and experience the magic this show will bring to audiences of all ages!

A Spoonful of Sherman will run from November 20 to 30 at the SOTA Drama Theatre.

Tickets will be available through SISTIC from 17 July 2019 onwards.
