Following their success with "The Child King", Make Friends with Puppet are set to stage another heartwarming tale for the whole family, "MoMo's Fancy Dress". With the puppets moving to original music, the story takes the audience on an exciting adventure into puppet land.
This story is all about MoMo the puppet. Nobody wants to pick poor MoMo up when she is being sold in the stall on the street. She dreams of the exciting world outside and being a rich kid's playmate. Old Tailor digs some scraps out from his drawers and cabinets and makes a fancy dress with rainbow colours just to make MoMo happy. With her fancy new dress, MoMo is finally taken home by a kid from a wealthy family. Unfortunately however, this turns out to be the beginning of a nightmare for little MoMo.
"MoMo's Fancy Dress" by Make Friends with Puppet is one of the attractions of the "Cheers!" series presented by the Leisure and Cultural Services Department. It will be staged at 8pm on December 13 and 14 (Friday and Saturday) and at 3pm on December 14 and 15 (Saturday and Sunday) at the Theatre, Sai Wan Ho Civic Centre.
