Jining Theater in Jining, East China's Shandong province held a news conference on Jan 28 and released its 2021 plan, noting that it will launch various activities to enrich people's lives and boost the development of the city's cultural industry.
According to the plan, Jining Theater will bring in a variety of shows from home and abroad, such as dramas, musicals, concerts, children's plays, and Peking opera performances, presented by renowned art troupes or performers to satisfy the cultural needs of all age groups.
The theater will also ramp up efforts to help shows produced by local troupes tour the country so that more people will come to admire the city's unique culture.
In addition, an art education center, which includes singing, dancing, and acting classes, will be established for kids who have a passion for art. The theater also plans to invite top-level artists from around the world to deliver lectures.
In 2020, Jining Theater put on over 80 shows despite the COVID-19 pandemic, receiving more than 23,000 spectators.
The excellent shows at the theater provide many cultural opportunities for the public and save the cost of traveling to other cities to watch shows, said Sun Xiaoting, a Jining resident who previously went to college in Shanghai.
