Five hundred school children from various charity organisations in Phnom Penh were recently treated to performances of the NABA Entertainment Spectacular show, organised by Nagaworld and held at the NABA Theatre at Naga2.
Mr. Pern Chen, managing director of NagaWorld, said they were delighted to offer a unique night of entertainment to the children.
“We know education is very important, but it is equally important to have fun. A happy student has more motivation to try harder at school and succeed”, he added.
Students were elated following their first theatre experience, including 15-year-old EFCC resident Smean Len, who said, “I am very happy to watch the show. I love the singing and dancing. This was an unforgettable night”.
Mr. Pern Chen further expressed, “We hope NABA Entertainment Spectacular, which features an amazing line up of both local and international performers and artists, will live long in the students’ memories and even help inspire some to pursue a career in the performing arts and music. We encourage them to follow their dreams and passions. Who knows, maybe some will become a part of Cambodia’s next generation of entertainers”.
The underprivileged children came from 12 different local NGOs including Europe Foundation for Cambodian Children (EFCC), House of Family, MAGNA Organisation, Orphan Disable Youth Poor Women Training Organisation (ODYPWTO), Leadership Character Development Institute, Horizons Vocational Training, Cambodia Organisation for Living and Temporary-care, Khemara Organisation, Cambodian Children’s Fund, People Improvement Organisation, Stella Child Care Organisation and Sacrifice Families and Orphans Development Association.
ODYPWTO manager Ken Srey Neath said they were pleased to be invited to attend the NABA Entertainment Spectacular. “The children were excited to watch the performance and they loved the theatre and facilities at NagaWorld,” she added.
The 2,000-seater NABA Theatre is Cambodia’s first 3D video mapping theatre, providing the audience with a celebration of the senses through an immersive journey of entertainment, art and illumination. Suitable for all ages, the free daily show featured a non-stop medley of local and international acts including dancers, singers, acrobats and street performers, accompanied by stunning video projections.
