Jumbo Kids Theatre will return in March with Toasty and her classmates Lui and Lan in its latest production, "Monster Family".
The trio take part in the "One Instrument for Every Student" scheme for many years in the hope of winning the school music competition. Their parents become tiger parents, seeing their children as all-round achievers whether in character, intelligence, physical performance, social skills or the arts, forcing them to practice hard and make music part of their everyday life. Sing is an exception. He doesn't know how to play any instrument, has no particular skill, and his favourite hobby is to pick up waste plastic and put it in the recycle bins. To his fellow students, Sing is a monster. Some even think that he comes from a family of monsters who love eating plastic. In order to find out the truth, they decide to pay him a visit at home. While they are there a mystery person suddenly appears and takes the children on an adventure as they visit one "monster family" after another.
