Miller Performing Arts: Only a Girl — Advance School Bookings
This November, 53 talented young local dancers and actors take the stage to present Only a Girl – a bittersweet LGBT+ tale about a girl’s road to self-discovery.
Written and directed by HKYAF’s founder Lindsey McAlister, Only a Girl begins with a chance encounter on the MTR that turns 15-year-old Jazz’s predictable world upside down. As the sparks of first love ignite, she learns how to navigate conservative parents, a nosey sister, curious friends and a new secret life. But will she find a way to live fully and openly?

Miller Performing Arts: #BetheChange: Tipping the Scales
"In recent years, researchers estimate a pangolin was poached every 21 minutes to fuel the illegal trade in Hong Kong alone. Globally, a pangolin is poached from the wild every 5 minutes."
#BetheChange: Tipping the Scales is a dance film that explores the plight of pangolins through creative movement. Created by Lindsey McAlister (Director) and Alicia Tang (Assistant Director), the film featured 11 young dancers and choreographers aged between 7 and 14 years old.
Over a six-week period, the young performers were given a variety of stimuli on the theme and were encouraged to develop their choreographic skills to create short vignettes of solos, duets and group movement pieces. The process was a highly creative and unique experience with the older dancers mentoring the younger, less experienced dancers.
#BeTheChange is a dance and spoken word film series created by Hong Kong Youth Arts Foundation (HKYAF) and encourages young people to address social issues that impact them through the arts. Tipping the Scales is created in partnership with Miller Performing Arts and supported by ADM Capital Foundation (ADMCF)'s Wildlife Programme. ADMCF is an environmental NGO working towards a sustainable future, protecting biodiversity and combatting the illegal wildlife trade in Hong Kong through research, incubating initiatives and raising awareness. They are currently seeking support for a critical legislative amendment that will see wildlife crime finally treated as an organised and serious criminal offence, taking the fight to those driving pangolins to extinction. Sign the petition and help us fight against illegal wildlife trading:
