The 3rd stop is Alishan Junior High and Elementary School. On December 4, the crew came to the activity center of the school, which is comparatively small and simple stage, making the props hard to be set. At last, the show gave an excellent performance and added some interactivities with students. It is can be said as the most flexible shows according to the local conditions. Most students in this school are minorities; they expressed their high interests on the show.
