Beauville Arts in China

Beauville Arts has been involved in an exciting project with the Hong Kong-based charity China Care Fund. Between 2008 and 2012 we put on four hugely successful shows in China, working with school groups of over one hundred Chinese students at a time, to stage a musical theatre show in English.

The shows were devised and rehearsed in 4 to 5 days and then performed to audiences of around 4000 people.

Watch videos of our previous China trips:

2008    ‘A Hero’s Tale’  in Guangdong                   2009  ‘Romeo and Juliet’ in Teng Xian

2010  ‘Lion King’ in Teng Xian

The aim of the project is to expose Chinese young people to Western teaching techniques and culture. The young people work on a challenging project, which allows them to express themselves artistically, whilst working and performing in English. The students come from rural villages in China and for many this is their first contact with people from outside China.

The team included Jonathan and Claire Mallalieu, Charles Knights and Sarah Guillermin from Beauville Arts plus helpers/translators from China Care Fund.
