 One of the highlights is that CNTC created two “Seed Project” works, in which CNTC sent a group of outstanding artists as the main creative team to utilize the local and traditional cultural resources of Guangshan County, and produces the two TYA works, Lights and Young Sima Guang. The two works belong exclusively to the children of Guangshan County and are performed by local primary and secondary school students and teachers. They will be passed on generation by generation, then the seeds of drama can take root at the grassroots level and truly let the flowers of drama bloom around the children.At present, the two works have been taken into the  local primary and secondary school drama course.
