HCM CITY (VNS) — The Sai Gon Water Puppet Troupe will offer a special children's programme at HCM City's Youth Cultural House this summer.
The troupe offers 11 two- and three-act plays based on traditional legends, including Teu (Uncle Teu), Mua Rong (Dragon Dance), Danh Ca Tren Song (Fishing on the River), Bac Ba Phi (Uncle Ba Phi) and Than Dong Dat Viet (Child Prodigies).
The performances combine traditional genres of circus and puppetry as well as modern music and dance.
"We have invested in theatre costumes and sound and light effects to dazzle young audiences," said the troupe's director Tran Loc.
Loc said the managing board had worked with local and foreign tourist agencies to introduce their art to visitors. They have also co-operated with many schools to offer free shows for students.
The troupe offers four shows every Saturday and Sunday. — VNS
