And the whole experience does not end at merely watching a play. In fact, a small talk is conducted between the theater manager and the children at the end of each play. Besides letting the children's imagination run wild, this activity also improves the socializing skills of these kids at a very young age. All in all, a fun package for these tiny tots!
