"Children are attracted by the colors and well-known roles, such as the Monkey King. There are also elements of dancing and martial arts," she says. "These days young people have many forms of entertainment to choose from, and we hope they get something out of this traditional art form."

The show is to be staged at Star Theater during weekends throughout the year.

Hao Weili, the show's producer, says Star Theater has produced Peking Opera shows for children since 2018. More than 300 shows have been staged, attracting nearly 50,000 viewers.
