February 28th, 2015 | Posted by Khalil in Entertainment | Event | Kuwait Life | Media & Ads. | Reviews - (0 Comments)

TaniaPlayTania Play is a new entertainment play organized by Senyar Marketing & Branding Co. Week ago, I got an invitation to attend the Tania Play. In few words, Tania Play revolves about the Chinese emperor’s daughter stand in the greedy and hate to defend their homeland. The play was good but more useful for kids. Everything well organized and directed. I liked the theme, decorations and way of managing the stage.
