Children's Troupe, which will be shown at the opening ceremony of the festival, is recommended by Cai for those aged 5 and above. The story is about students coming together to form a drama troupe during the War of Resistance Against Japanese Aggression (1931-45).

The Art Theater of the China Welfare Institute will also put up the plays such as Rabbit Lantern, Badger Stealing Watermelons and Clown, all of which are adapted from picture books.

Cai suggests that those seeking an immersive experience should check out And Who are You?, a play from Croatia that teaches children how to make new friends, and The Sock, a production from Denmark that aims to stir the imagination through stories about socks.

Cai says that children can also apply for the drama camp that will be held during the festival through the theater's website. A drama master will lead the camp, teaching children to perform and understand stage plays through lectures and activities. Only 25 slots are available.

Other opportunities for immersive theater experience will also come in the form of workshops by professional troupes from Denmark and Russia.
