HCM CITY — Theatre director Hoàng Duẩn and young actors of Phương Nam Theatre will stage a new play aimed at young audiences to celebrate the Mid-autumn Full Moon Festival, which begins on October 1 (the fifteen day of the eighth lunar month this year).

The play, Công Chúa Tóc Mây (Princess with Magic Hair), features a beautiful princess who faces challenges to protect her people and animal from dark witches.

It highlights themes of love, friendship, bravery, self-respect and honesty, and contains messages to encourage children to work together to fight negative forces. The natural world and environmental protection are also included.

“My play combines puppet and circus performances,” said Duẩn, a graduate of the HCM City College of Theatre & Cinematography (now HCM City University of Theatre & Cinematography), who has 25 years of experience in the industry.

“Phương Nam actors, include young female talents Mi Vân and Thùy Trang, have worked several hours a day to show off their skills in puppetry, music, dance and circus tricks.

“We will provide audiences with a stage of 3D light and sound effects.”

Duẩn, who is also a puppeteer and theatre writer, had a deep passion for puppetry when he was at university. After becoming involved in drama, he began to understand how knowledge and experience in puppetry enhanced his talent on stage.

Duẩn promises that he will create magic on stage in Công Chúa Tóc Mây. He worked with costume designers and theatre specialists to perfect his play through beautiful clothes, accessories and interior design suited to the work’s theme.

“Creating a dazzling stage for children comes naturally to myself, a man who has a child-like mind,” said Duẩn,

According to Lê Diễn, director of Phương Nam Theatre, the theatre spent VNĐ500 million (US$24,000) on the production.

“We are preparing to stage a series of new shows after closing for a long period due to the COVID-19 pandemic. We will open our theatre’s curtain every weekend,” he said.

Công Chúa Tóc Mây will be staged at the Gia Định Park’s Circus Theatre on Hoàng Minh Giám Street, Gò Vấp District, at 8pm every Friday and Saturday in September and October.

Tickets are available at the theatre’s box office.— VNS
