SYNOPSIS: CPAC’s Flowertopia is an original musical based on a story by Yap Zhe Zhen.

The story follows Michelia, a fairy without wings, who sets off on a journey to rescue Flowertopia’s Queen, Delphina, who was captured by her evil sister Nerida. During her quest she encounters a spooky forest, dangerous wolves and a colony of Silencio fairies, that help guide her to the wise owl known as Archimedes. He tells Michelia that she must retrieve the cempaka flower from the highest mountain. The flower’s nectar possesses great power that will be able to save Queen Delphina, so Michelia finds the cempaka flower but she got captured by Nerida’s griffins, Zac and Zar.

Once Nerida discovers the cempaka flower in Michelia’s possession, she immediately takes it for herself, but the power of the nectar within, is too strong and ultimately destroys Nerida. Michelia restores Queen Delphina’s power by using the cempaka flower that in turn magically gives her wings as they both return home to Flowertopia.
Flowertopia’s debut stage performance was in North Hall Theatre, Cempaka Schools, on 23rd November 2017.
