A Chinese adaptation of Wicked Little One, the famed original musical from Japan's Shiki Theatre Company, kicked off its 50-city national tour with performances on Friday, Saturday and Sunday at Beijing's Poly Theatre.

The musical follows the original story of a mischievous young witch who, through a series of wondrous events, learns about love and kindness, while adding some new features from the Chinese crew.

According to the staged designer Dou Hui, he updated the stage design from the original 1980s style to better fit the tastes of today's young children in China.

One of the most popular musicals in Japan, Wicked Little One has been staged more than 1,100 times since its debut in 1983.
