{Giveaway at end of post}

I love exposing my kids to different experiences and one of the easiest way is to bring them to watch plays. They are immediately transported into settings that are out of their world, and they often get to learn a valuable lesson or two. I also use the scenes in plays to relate to my kids, and teach them life’s lessons through it.

Jerry has been through quite a number of plays already, and Jerome recently went for his first. The plays they have watched thus far have been english-speaking ones and I do want to bring them to Mandarin speaking ones in a bid to promote speaking the language. Both my kids are bilingual because the grandparents speak Mandarin, but I am a lot more comfortable in English and they do tend to veer towards the English speaking zone more often than not.

Do you have the same problem? Just how do you tackle it?

I’m looking forward to bringing them to their first Mandarin play, and it is going to be Goldilocks and the Three Bears (金发姑娘和三只熊) by SRT’s The Little Company! It’s a classic story and I am sure they would love it.

Goldilocks & the Three Bears (金发姑娘和三只熊)

On a trip into the forest, Goldilocks ventures into a seemingly uninhabited house. In the process of making herself at home, she turns the place into a gigantic mess! Little does she know that the house belongs to a family of three bears, who are not too pleased to witness her handiwork.
Goldilocks and the Three Bears reminds children not to fiddle with the belongings of others, lest there be consequences to bear.

Am a little excited myself, because it is going to be my first Mandarin play and I can’t be sure I am understand all of it all. Yeah, I’m that bad in the language. Hopefully, I’ll be able to explain it to my kid effectively. If you want to catch the play on the same day as me, stay on the post right till the end!

There is also another upcoming play in April titled The Three Billy Goats Gruff

Perfect for kids aged two to six, The Three Billy Goats Gruff is part of a trio series written by award-winning musical writers Anthony Drewe and George Stiles (Broadway’s Mary Poppins, Just So, and Peter Pan: A Musical Adventure). The musical is based on the classic Norwegian fairy tale, De tre bukkene Bruse, and tells the tale of three male goats that must find a way to escape the clutches of an evil troll in order to reach the other side of a river to find food.
