About This Show

Perfect for your youngest theater-goers and as a first theatrical experience! See a heroic carp climb up a waterfall (and so much more) in The Carp Who Would Not Quit and Other Animal Stories, an energetic and interactive retelling of traditional fables from Japan and Okinawa. Through artful puppetry and three imaginative actors, you’ll also meet a grateful crane, a wonderfully generous mouse, and an industrious rabbit who teaches everyone to do the mochi dance! During this invigorating show from Hawai'i, live music played on the koto, shakuhachi, and taiko drum will accompany young audiences as they dance, clap, and sing along.
