On the evening of August 6th, the China National Theatre for Children’s child play Snow White and the Seven Dwarfs raised the curtains of the NCPA International Children’s Theatre Festival 2019. During the month-long festival, children can not only watch the wonderful performances brought by six theatre groups and artists from five countries, including China, France, United States, United Kingdom and Hungary, but also participate in colorful experiential activities of drama.
A childish voice from the theatre: "Hello everyone! I am little Snow White. I’m so happy to know you... ". The "Cutest Little Anchors" was selected by the NCPA from more than 150 little candidates from across the country. Before the performance, the broadcast announced the theatre etiquette in English and Chinese. The cute sound of a child's voice is infectious, so children can better understand the etiquette of watching a performance, and be the excellent civilized audience together.
When the curtain went up and the show began, the beautiful and kind Snow White from Grimm's Fairy Tales, walked onto the stage with seven lovely dwarf miners.
