M1 Chinese Theatre Festival- The wee Question Mark & the Adventurer

Though an electronic device is convenient for keeping children entertained, I can’t deny I still prefer the old fashioned method of human interaction.

There’s a Chinese theatre festival going on right now and two of these plays are suited for children 5 and above (O is only 4 years old but they allowed us through on condition that he not cause a nuisance). I thought “The wee Question Mark & the Adventurer” would interest O and it’s also a good chance to expose him to theatricals.

We got the 2pm Saturday show and arrived early for lunch first.

After lunch, we proceeded to the entrance of the venue.

The play doesn’t allow for photography or recording so that’s all I took.

O was super quiet during the show, I can tell he’s a wee bit lost from the unfamiliar words used, but the exaggerated movements and music kept him enraptured. Subsequently when I asked him, he said the show is very nice and will like to watch again. 🙂

This play has already ended its’ run, but there’s another show suitable for children called “Into the Flood”, which you can check out here.
