November 15 - 18

A Shadow can disappear just as quickly as a bubble but how does it appear in the first place?

Through exploring the senses using bubbles and shadows this form of theatre engages both the very young audience and their parent/s in a journey of discovery using lights and reactionary subtle music along with body & vocal acoustics that change with every performance. The audience is a key player where shadows and bubbles are the magical tools that broaden the mind and take us into a new and much younger world.


Hubbub is highly an interactive show where through the art form of play, the young and older generations are encouraged to connect through self-discovery and imagination that develops perceptions and new reactions.

Get your deerstalker cap on — the play’s afoot! Comedic genius Ken Ludwig transforms Arthur Conan Doyle’s classic The Hound of the Baskervilles into a murderously funny adventure.

To find their ingenious killer, Holmes and Watson must brave the desolate moors before a family curse dooms its newest heir. Watch as our intrepid
investigators try to escape a dizzying web of clues, silly accents, disguises, and deceit as five actors deftly portray more than 40 characters. Does a wild hellhound prowl the moors of Devonshire? Can our heroes discover the truth in time? Join the fun and see how far from elementary the truth can be.

The Learned Ladies of Mid-Levels

29-30 June at 8pm 1 July at 3 and 8pm
By Moliere

After the sold-out original run in 2012, the Shadow Players is excited to bring back Molière’s hilarious Les Femmes Savantes (The Learned Ladies) to Hong Kong, after the revived production’s tour in Australia in collaboration with the European Union Centre for Global Affairs.

To be performed between 29th June and 1st July 2017 at the Hong Kong Fringe Club’s Underground Theatre, The Learned Ladies of Mid-Levels centres on the ladies of a Mid-levels household, who seems to be unable to distinguish intellectual snobbery from true
learning, and fall under the spell of the pompous and affected intellectual fraud C.Y. Tang.

Against her husband’s wishes, the mother of the house desires her youngest daughter, Henriette, to marry C.Y. Tang. But Henriette’s heart is set on Sebastian, a man of practical
learning. Will the mother ever see C.Y. Tang for who he truly is? Will Henriette be allowed to marry her Sebastian? Will these learned ladies of the Mid-levels ever learn what real learning is?

This translation of Les Femmes Savantes is written entirely in witty rhyming couplets and also in catchy iambic pentameter, and was extensively edited and adapted by the Shadow
Players to bring it from 17th century France to contemporary Hong Kong. A satire on academic pretension, female education and precociousness, Ladies was one of Molière’s most popular comedies.

This revival of Shadow Players’ inaugural production was commissioned by the European Union Centre for Global Affairs and was further refined and improved from the original run.

The cast and crew had the opportunity to bring this production to various schools and venues in Australia to promote cultural exchange between Europe, Asia, and Australia, and performed to full houses at every show.

Iffy. Iphigenia in Hong Kong

June 15-16, 7:30pm
By Neil Harris and others

A new musical, written and performed by students of Sha Tin College with the support of Hong Kong’s infamous Not So Loud Theatre Company, tells the story of Iphegenia, a young girl with a fateful name, chosen to be this year’s failure in the school system. In a dystopian world of school exam pressures and constant deadlines (sound familiar?), how do Iffy and her family cope when they receive the news? Why has she been chosen and just how will she fail?

This tale of the fictional world of Aulis will entertain whilst provoking discussion about how we help young people to cope when all is not well in their real Hong Kong lives - yet another Hong Kong focused but classically driven world premiere from the Not So Louds.
