School Shows

Learn Through Story Telling

Through the telling of Asian classics, fables and idioms, students will learn about diverse Asian cultures and traditions, as well as essential values and morals that are integral to the building of a student’s character.

Advance Students’ Skill Sets Though Drama

Paper Monkey Theatre has been advocating the use of drama, especially puppetry, to advance the students’ skill sets. Through our performances and workshops, students can

  • Improve their communication skills
  • Enhance their expressive language and psychomotor skills
  • Hone their analytical thinking and creativity,
  • while having fun at the same time.

Experienced Team

With an experienced team of instructors, Paper Monkey Theatre will work together with the schools to help achieve these goals. Teachers will also have the option to consult the organisation on theatre-related matters such as set, prop and costume design.

Many of our programmes are eligible for the NAC-AEP Tote Board Arts Grant scheme.
