Winner of M1-The Straits Times Life Theatre Awards 2017 for Best Production for the Young, Paper Monkey Theatre returns to Moonfest with The Magic Paintbrush!

Once upon a time, there lived a poor orphan boy named Ma Liang. He loved to draw, but was too poor to buy a paintbrush, so he used coal and a stick to draw instead. His dedication moved the gods and they gave him a magic paintbrush that brought all the things he drew magically to life! He used the magic paintbrush to help the poor villagers, but an evil landlord and the greedy Emperor captured Ma Liang, and forced him to paint gold and silver for them.

Will Ma Liang be able to escape and continue to do good and help the villagers? Find out inThe Magic Paintbrush!
