There’s nothing quite as amazing as seeing your child’s eyes light up as you bring the magic of the festive season to life!
As a lead up to this Chinese New Year, take the entire family for one of the most anticipated interactive plays for children and parents this season; Ma Liang and the Magic Paintbrush, from February 1 – 3 at Cabaret PJ Live Arts.
Based on a traditional Chinese fable, Ma Liang and the Magic Paintbrush tells a tale of a village girl who befriends a mystical dragon that presents her with a magic paintbrush, which brings anything she paints to life.
Trouble and adventure awaits Ma Liang as the Prince of the Province hears of the Magic Paintbrush and wants it for himself, and she is forced to use her quick wits to outsmart the Prince.
The show, organised by Box of Delights Family Theatre, aims to entertain, educate and inspire young audiences, drawing from legends, literature, and historical lore of different cultures to present high-quality, imaginative and delightful theatre.
Sharon Lam, Director of Ma Liang and the Magic Paintbrush, expressed her excitement in bringing this folktale to life in time for the Chinese New Year festivities.
“It’s a brilliant time of the year when the family gets together; and with Ma Liang and the Magic Paintbrush, it is our dream that every audience, of every age, be able to take something from this show.
Compassion, humour, and a notion that good prevails against evil are strong themes which we want to get across to children in a simple but effective platform – which is theatre!”
The play written by Sharon and UiHua Cheah will feature talents such as Aaron Khaled, Mia Sabrina Mahadir, Marina Tan, and UiHua himself.
Performance dates are 1 February, Friday (10am); 2 February, Saturday (11am); and 3 February, Sunday (2pm). Tickets are priced at RM30 per entry, or RM25 early bird discount before January 15.
Tickets are available at PJ Live Arts at Jaya One or for further enquiries, contact 03-796 00439 / 017 -2289 849.
