The wee Question Mark and the Mountain Movers
A huge mountain lies between the village and the rest of the world. One day, Mr. Foolish decides to move that mountain and commits his entire family to the task. But generations later, the mountain is still here! As his descendants throw down their shovels, they ask themselves… Is there another way to overcome this challenge? Why did we need to move the mountain in the first place?
The Theatre Practice’s award-winning wee Question Mark series returns with its highly anticipated third instalment! Inspired by the well-known Chinese saying, “The Fool Moves the Mountain”, this family-friendly musical invites our young audiences to explore the importance of critical thought and the danger of blind acceptance.
Reuniting Playwright Huang Suhuai, Director Kuo Jian Hong, Lyricist Xiaohan and Composer Julian Wong, this engaging musical adventure combines wacky storytelling, original music and engaging participatory theatre with the series’ signature light touch!
