Prospects Theatre to showcase power of inclusion in drama

From 18 – 19 August, Prospects Theatre will stage four shows of its Youth Theatre Showcase, Adventures in Magic Forest at Studio Theatre, Hong Kong Cultural Centre. Performed in Cantonese, the play follows a little red riding hood and a puppet friend who must overcome their differences to rescue kids trapped inside a magic forest. The production is part of Prospects Theatre’s three-year initiative “Jockey Club Equal Opportunities Drama Project”, sponsored by Hong Kong Jockey Club Charities Trust and supported by the EOC. Since 2015 the project has spread messages of equal opportunity and anti-discrimination among local youth through talks, workshops, competitions and summer camps.

The 3:30pm show on 19 August will be followed by a ceremony where Youth Drama Ambassadors under the project will be recognised for their active participation in inclusion-themed activities.
