Tickets for the family theatre event of the year go on sale this weekend.
Now we realise that planning for 2020 might sound a bit extreme, but KidsFest 2020 needs to be in your calendar! With nine different children’s classics brought to life on stage over six weeks, this is the perfect introduction to the wonderful world of theatre. The best bit is that you, our wonderful Sassy Mamas, have exclusive access to priority booking this weekend AND special discounts.
KidsFest is the leading children’s theatre company in Hong Kong and each year brings out the best family-friendly productions – little ones and parents alike are sure to be entertained at this premiere event for families in the city.
This winter, get lost in the world of Tabby McTat, Mr Men and Little Miss, The Gruffalo’s Child, The Snail And The Whale, Dr Bunhead’s Blastoff, Dinosaur Zoo, Stick Man, Peter Pan: Underneath A Magical Moon and the always popular KidsFest mainstay, The Gruffalo. There’s family fun for everyone and tickets are sure to be snapped up quick.
For little ones (and nostalgic parents!), nothing beats the magic of seeing their favourite characters and stories come to life on stage. Watch their faces light up and their minds open with curiosity and excitement!
For the first time in Hong Kong, the beautifully crafted and hilarious Mr Men and Little Miss is sure to be a crowd-pleaser. See your favourites, Mr Bump, Little Miss Sunshine, Mr Tickle and Little Miss Inventor, leap off the page and onto the stage as puppets. Dinosaur Zoo also features a cast of large-scale, life-like puppets that are sure to stimulate the imagination. This is one for kids aged five and up, and gives little ones a chance to get up close to the action or watch the experiential theatre wide-eyed from a distance.
There are also extra discounts on offer – save 10% when you book a group of six or more; 10% when booking two shows and 15% when booking three shows! Need tickets for the whole family?
