老太婆， 快快来， 快来帮我们拔萝卜。
This is one of my kids' favourite nursery rhymes and it talks about the story of the famous gigantic turnip. For those who don't know, The Enormous Turnip is a children's fairy tale of Russian or Slavic origin, written by Aleksey Nikolayevich Tolstoy. In the story, a grandfather plants a turnip which grows so huge that he cannot pull it up himself. He asks the grandmother for help but together, they still cannot pull it up. One after another, more people and animals are asked to help and when the little mouse joins in, they finally pull up the turnip.
Yes, I think all of us have heard of this story, right? It teaches us that as long as we work together, we can do anything and we should never underestimate the contribution of anyone in the team, no matter how small. Besides singing this nursery rhyme over and over again and pulling up make-believe turnips, we are thrilled that we will be watching The Enormous Turnip live on stage in November on my big girl's birthday!
I Theatre’s unique brand of professional actors, unforgettable songs, mask, puppetry and theatre magic again brings you the story of a tiny mouse – and an enormous turnip. Little Eek the Mouse’s dream is to be noticed. But Eek is SO small. Diggory the Gardener’s dream is to win a prize – any prize for his vegetables. And then – in his garden, a turnip grows – and grows – and grows! Where does it come from? And who is strong enough to pull this Enormous Turnip out of the ground?
