Synopsis:

Part of "Moonfest – A Mid-Autumn Celebration 艺满中秋"

Winner of M1-The Straits Times Life Theatre Awards 2017 for Best Production for the Young, Paper Monkey Theatre returns to Moonfest with The Magic Paintbrush!

Once upon a time, there lived a poor orphan boy named Ma Liang. He loved to draw, but was too poor to buy a paintbrush, so he used coal and a stick to draw instead. His dedication moved the gods and they gave him a magic paintbrush that brought all the things he drew magically to life! He used the magic paintbrush to help the poor villagers, but an evil landlord and the greedy Emperor captured Ma Liang, and forced him to paint gold and silver for them.

Will Ma Liang be able to escape and continue to do good and help the villagers? Find out in The Magic Paintbrush!

An exciting performance based on a classic Chinese folktale, this engaging puppetry adaptation lets children learn about determination and kindness. Featuring exquisite traditional hand puppets, lively action and melodious music that will enthral and entertain all, from the young to the young at heart!

自荣获2017年M1-海峡时报"生活!戏剧奖"最佳儿童制作奖后,猴纸剧坊重返艺满中秋,为小朋友们带来另一部精彩剧目《神笔马良》。

从前,有一位名叫马良的孤儿。他很喜欢画画,但因为太穷,没钱买画笔,所以他就用煤炭和树枝在岩石和沙子上练习画画。他不屈不挠的精神感动了神仙,于是,他们送了马良一支神笔。这支神笔能把马良所画的东西都变成真实!马良利用神笔帮助贫困的村民。邪恶的财主和贪婪的皇帝获知此事后,派人把马良给抓了,并迫使他为他们画出大量的金银珠宝。

马良能否逃脱魔掌,继续帮助贫穷的村民呢?欲知详情,就来看《神笔马良》吧!

这是一部改编自经典中国民间神话的木偶演出。通过精湛的布袋偶,和优美的配乐,将故事活灵活现的呈现给小朋友们,让他们在欢乐声中学习毅力与仁慈等传统美德。
