Back for its third run at the Huayi Festival of Arts, Child’s Play presents The Story of the Banyan Tree. Adapted from the classic local folklore, kids aged six to 11 are invited on an adventure of epic proportions. Did we mention no grown-ups allowed?

The animals in the kampung have disappeared and three brave children are asked to lure the giant python from the old banyan tree! Kids will play as the villagers to help save the kampung. Should they chase the snake away or can the children, villagers and animals live in harmony? Performed in Mandarin, this children-only theatre production will be packed with hands-on activities and creative storytelling. Kids will learn the importance of teamwork, responsibility and problem-solving in without the help of parents or teachers.
