For this year's National Day Parade (NDP), the evening show will be held at The Star Performing Arts Centre.

Singaporeans can therefore expect to see "more intimate and small-scale performances" on television and online, the chairman of the NDP executive committee, Brigadier-General Frederick Choo, stated.

In giving an estimate of the numbers for the performance, Choo stated that it will be about 80 to 100 people — a reduction of over 95 per cent from NDP 2019 which saw 2,600 performers in total at the Padang.

Final line-up is still being worked out but more local talent will be featured

Choo also pointed out that the length of the performances will be shorter unlike previous instances where the acts would last for 10-12 minutes.

As such, while the final line-up is still being worked on, more local talents will be featured in the line-up, along with the Home Team and SAF Music and Drama Company.

However, large representations of volunteers from the People's Association, SOKA and the Ministry of Education will not be involved.

While there are no word on what will be in the funpack yet, Choo stated that it will contain items that allow Singaporeans to interact with the show.

There will be enough funpacks for every Singaporean and PR household, which is an estimate of about 1.2 to 1.3 million households.

Whether Singaporeans can watch the show live is contingent on  Covid-19 guidelines

In response to a question about whether a live audience will be featured for the evening show, Choo added that this was contingent on Covid-19 guidelines which the committee was "watching very closely."

Choo elaborated that for the moment, the committee was operating on the assumption that the show will be broadcasted live with no spectators.

However, should there be an audience, safe distancing measures and other Covid-19 guidelines will be adhered to.

Rehearsals to only start after CB ends

As for rehearsals for the parade in general, Choo stated that these will only start once the circuit breaker is lifted.

Choo then added:

"And because of that, all the rehearsals will build up towards to the ninth of August. And that means that this year, we will not have any of the national education shows, neither the preview shows to be ticketed to Singaporeans. It will be the ninth of August National Day show."

Giving useless not so fun packs to 1,2M households which will end up in the trash bins? wasting money and time.  Better to give 2 boxes of masks printed with NDP logos if they want.

Mask is a good idea now. Can partner with Razer. Local brands. Disposable mask with NDP logo don't mind also. Instead of NDP cap can give NDP face shield. Fun pack can be renamed to Essential Survival Pack. Give out grocery vouchers. Should brainstorm the 'fun pack' carefully. :a-anyone:

No open to audience but still have 80-100 performances? How they managed to maintain the social distancing during rehearsal?

Rather do away will the performance and fun packs and save the money, instead of coming up with lame excuses to raise prices in 2021 after Covid-19 is over.

I dont know why they need to give every locals/PR household one NDP fun pack? I am not interested in the fun pack. And i guess there will be a lot of fun packs left uncollected.

Commemorative surgical mask pack would be an awesome gift. Set of three per citizen - one printed with sg flag, one with a colourful map of sg, and one with total defence or some crap. Made by Razer. 

Problem is, noone will actually use them. They'll be on sale on Carousell latest by the next day.
