Children’s Dance Drama
To get to the top, child prodigies never stop!
09:00 Piano class. 11:00 Painting class. 13:00 English oral class. 15:00 Swimming class. 17:00 Maths class. 19:00 Etiquette class … All kinds of extracurricular classes that make Saturday, the sixth “school day” one that is also called “training day for super children” by parents looking to make their kids top students. And of course, this is done by enrolling them in additional tutorials so they will compete better and set off as winners from the starting line.
In celebration of its 10th anniversary, the Children’s and Youth Troupes collaborate with the Hong Kong Children’s Choir for Saturday Whispers, a heartwarming dance drama that discusses love and expectations between parents and children. Some 200 young and very talented dancers and singers invite the audience to listen to the secrets of growing children, as told through dance, song and theatrical acts with the help of charming costumes, stage design, props – and a clever robot with downloadable apps that give kids instant knowledge and learning abilities!
