Are you looking for ways to develope your child’s interest in Mandarin? I know I am. As a family that speaks more English, Sophie finds it hard to express herself in Mandarin even though she can understand and even read Chinese.
And where I’m concerned is because we’re planning to send her to a SAP school where she’ll need a better command of Chinese to appreciate what’s taught to her. That’s why I’m always on the look out for fun and interesting way to introduce the Chinese language to Sophie.
If you’re in the same shoes as me, you’ll be glad to know that Paper Monkey Theatre will be rerunning their sold-out performance Looking for Mama in September 2014.
Little tadpoles were hatched and started their journey Looking for Mama. One of them left the group and met different creatures in the pond while asking around, “Where’s my Mama? Are you my Mama? ” Every creature replied with different answers. Little tadpole felt confused but discovered more about itself along the way.
A re-run production by Paper Monkey Theatre, Looking for Mama, tells the adventure of a brave little tadpole in search for its Mama. Come and join us at this heartwarming journey as we show-and-tell with drama, handcrafted puppets and popular sing-along children’s songs such as 一只青蛙一张嘴，猜对了and so on.
Shadow puppetry will be featured during the performance. After the performance, children are welcome to interact with the actors and puppets too.
