Featured Event
 
The 35th Anniversary Academy Festival Presents: TEA Graduate Exhibition 2019 (Now until 1 July)
The beauty of any creative work lies in the artists’ imagination and genuine portrayal of his/ her emotions, often taking the audience beyond the world of reality.

With intricate sets and props, lighting and sound effects, and other behind-the-scene effort, audiences are brought into a whole new world full of creativity and surprises! 
 
The TEA Graduate Exhibition will feature the works of about 40 graduating students from the School of Theatre and Entertainment Arts. Student-led guided tours are available in Cantonese and English to walk visitors through the creative process behind the exhibits. Come join us to see how stories can be told through our talented stage production artists!

Rashomon (Re-run) – 10% discount offer
Four “truths” in a murder.
How can one be free from the dirt?
 
In a grove happens a murder. Four persons are involved: the ‘fierce’ bandit, the ‘unyielding’ samurai, the ‘loyal’ wife and a woodcutter who ‘witnessed the truth’. Each tells a contradictory story. Last year Chung Ying presented the drama adaptation with Best Director awardee of the Hong Kong Drama Awards Tony Wong as the director, winning Best Director (Tragedy/Drama), Best Lighting Design and Outstanding Production of the Year from the Hong Kong Drama Awards. It is definitely a play you should never miss.
