“Wondrous Tales of Old Japan” is a collection of amazing Japanese folk tales including worlds where ogres clash with heroes who are born from giant peaches, fishermen fall in love with dragon princesses and magical dogs reincarnate.

The tales include Momotaro: The Peach Boy, Urashimataro: The Enchanted Fisherman, Yuki Onna: The Snow Woman, and Hanasaka Jiji: The Old Man That Made the Trees Bloom. The play is presented in the style of Kabuki theatre, a traditional Japanese popular drama with singing and dancing performed in a highly stylized manner. A rich blend of music, dance, mime and spectacular staging and costuming.

Featuring: Rodolfo Robles Cruz, Jolissa Hernandez, Ian Jones, Alexis Macedo, Daniel Serrano, Summer S. Session, Andrew Trevino, and Cha Yang.
