WE’RE COMMITTED TO DELIVERING EXCITING PRODUCTIONS AND OPPORTUNITIES FOR AUDIENCES AND PERFORMERS ACROSS HONG KONG AND BEYOND.
Face Productions puts on two professional productions every year in January and June. Our winter musical features performers aged 8 to 18, while our summer musical features performers of all ages above 8. During the year, we also produce smaller shows, as well as digital content including music videos, audiobooks, and albums.
Face Academy provide intensive, audition-only training to skilled performers aged 8 to 18. Face Academy students perform in two professional musicals annually, as well as smaller public events and showcases throughout the year. Face Dance and Face Voice are additional programmes from dancers and singers looking to hone specific skills in those areas outside of Face Academy’s musical theatre training.
