JING JAK SERIES
The aim of jing jak series productions is to use theatre to re-emphasize to children the importance of inner beauty, both in the world around and within each of us. Our intent is to create a learning journey that is visually appealing to pre-school children, in the age group of 2 - 6 years. As our nation moves forward in this competitive world, we have to continuously align our core values with the changing times.
Set in a musical presentation and a colourful background, we bring out the wonders of puppetry and limitless imagination to the young ones.
