Presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department, the "Cheers!" Series offers many fabulous family programmes, the latest of which is "The Child King" by Make Friends With Puppet.
This touching story from the talented puppet troupe follows on from their highly popular 2010 production "The Lovable Scavenger". The Child King is more than a merrymaker, he's carefree and provides a sparkle within our hearts, guiding us through the city's narrow alleys in search of innocence and the fantastic. This multimedia production combines colourful puppet imagery, newly composed music and video projections, promising a spectacular all-round performance. Travelling between heaven and earth with the Child King, the audience will be reminded of long-lost dreams and innocence.
Make Friends With Puppet enjoy being creative and adventurous in their art. The troupe has produced a number of well known repertories including "Adventure in Rainbowland", "Winter in Sweetyland", "The Iron Scarecrow", "Little Red Riding Hood" and "The Little Snowman & Sunflower".
"The Child King" by Make Friends With Puppet will be staged at 8pm on December 21 and 22 (Friday and Saturday) and 3pm on December 22 and 23 (Saturday and Sunday) at the Theatre, Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre.
