About Us

YPPAE is a Mandarin theatre performing arts company by the young, for the young.

We are dedicated to research, develop and practise Mandarin theatre performing arts and arts education with the young. We believe that theatre performing arts is a holistic platform for the young to stimulate creativity, critical and independent thinking.

Led by our board of directors and artistic director - Ms. Ma Gyap Sen, YPPAE produces 'box office hits' Mandarin children theatre productions - ranging from plays and cross-talk shows to choral concerts and musicals - every year.

YPPAE also aims to enhance every child's confidence and developing his or her sense of identity through our very own Theatre Performing Arts Training framework - an integration of Confucian philosophy and Western theories in creative drama - to nurture our children into artistes, under the guidance of our advisor, Mr Tang Chia-Yu.

Vision:
To become a world-class Chinese cultural youth theatre arts company, iconic in inculcating virtues of truth, goodness, and beauty.

Mission:
To foster deep-rooted enthusiasm and appreciation of Chinese Culture and performing arts in the young through our original Chinese artistic creations.

To provide the young with a platform that leads them to explore and gain a more holistic insight of themselves, of their social behaviour and of the world, seeking greater spiritual and artistic fulfillment.
