In the coming months the Leisure and Cultural Services Department will present a series of entertaining programmes in the Family Fun series. The first programme in the series is the children's puppet theatre production "The Goose of Pipi" by Ming Ri Institute for Arts Education.
Pipi the goose believes that owning books will increase her intelligence, so she always proudly carries her books under her wings to show everyone how smart she is. Unfortunately for Pipi, all she knows is showing off the books - she knows nothing about the knowledge they contain nor does she help others to learn from them.
The performances will be conducted in Cantonese. Details are as follows:
February 17 and 18 (Friday and Saturday)
February 19 (Sunday)
Theatre, Ngau Chi Wan Civic Centre
Tickets: $130 and $100
February 25 (Saturday)
February 26 (Sunday)
Auditorium, North District Town Hall
March 3 (Saturday)
March 4 (Sunday)
Cultural Activities Hall, Tuen Mun Town Hall
