The orig­i­nal pup­pet show Ju­ve­nile Con­fu­cius by Wuhan Peo­ple's Art Theater was put on stage on June 2. Fol­low­ing it will be a pup­pet mime Dear, a pup­pet show Pup­pet Play, an orig­i­nal chil­dren's play Beau­ti­ful Flower Fairy and Franken­stein Frogby, all by Wuhan Peo­ple's Art Theater. On July 1, a cre­ative drama for chil­dren Change of Chi­nese Char­ac­ters from Ji­nan Chil­dren's Art Theater will be per­formed.

By com­bin­ing var­i­ous an­i­ma­tion tech­niques and live mu­sic, the play tells of Rick's col­or­ful jour­ney of ex­plor­ing the world and self-re­al­iza­tion.
