HERE COMES KAYA & ROTI! “Where Are Our Friends?”

Kaya and Roti love to tell stories and sing nursery rhymes. More importantly, they love meeting new friends!

A party is a great way to make friends. But… is there any way to throw a big bash now? Joined by their new pal Guyou, Kaya and Roti must rally together and get creative to find a new way to party and connect with their friends!

Imaginative, playful and highly interactive, HERE COMES KAYA & ROTI! “Where Are Our Friends?” is an extension of Practice’s award-winning work in Mandarin Theatre for Young Audiences.

Unfolding across three days, it reinvents traditional Mandarin nursery rhymes as an innovative online theatre show. Get the kids off the couch with sing-alongs, improvisational storytelling and craft sessions, peppered with audience participation and live interactions from the cast.

HERE COMES KAYA & ROTI! “Where Are Our Friends?” was first staged in 2020. The 2021 edition will feature three new stories including:  

  • Don’t Catch Me!
  • Going Home
  • If I Could Be You…
