The Three Tales from China
This past weekend, we were invited to see the premiere of the The Magic Pot: The Three Tales from China, an original musical for kids, performed by kids. The story is about a girl who finds herself in the middle of ancient tales, and her own extraordinary adventure.
While I am not a big fan of musicals, the Magic Pot was really worth taking a chance to see. There was so much to like about the show; the multi-cultural cast, the catchy music, the acting, the dancing, the stage and the traditional Chinese costumes. All in all, the musical offered the right touch to engage all age groups.
If you have a chance to check out the musical, you will thoroughly enjoy it and have a great time.
