Asian Children's Performing Arts Festival

Source: www.itheatre.org

7 - 27 November 2005

This festival, initially started as a segment of the Asian Children¡¯s Festival, has been overwhelmingly successful over the last four years, growing and developing each year.
Last year we had the best response ever, with most of our performances sold out or nearly sold out, and very positive comments from our audiences.
For 2005 we are VERY proud to present to you the inaugural Asian Children¡¯s Performing Art Festival - A true festival of theatre, music, dance, and multi-arts that runs in a spirit of mutual support and co-operation, incorporating Singaporean and regional professional performing arts groups.
The Arts Interwoven
There is a theme to each production in the Festival this year ¨C each Art form is carefully intertwined with another.
