Fantasy Puppet Theatre to perform colourful "Fruit Story"
****************************

     The Leisure and Cultural Services Department (LCSD) has invited Fantasy Puppet Theatre to perform "Fruit Story" - the intriguing tale of seven fruits. Endearing puppets, sweet music and colourful stage sets will keep children and parents enthralled throughout the show.

     Fruit Story follows the tale of seven kinds of fruit, each with its own taste and personality. The seven fruits accidentally find themselves stranded in the wilderness and try to establish a "fruit village". After a good start, trouble arrives in the form a big bird which often attacks the village. Will the fruits survive? Can they ride out the storm together? Played out simply but carrying important life lessons, Fruit Story shows the importance of mutual understanding between friends.
