the scoop:

In this latest Thistle Theatre production, see what happens when an old woman finds a huge peach floating in a river. When she and her husband try to cut it open, a baby emerges and the couple raise him as their son. Momotaro (aka Peach Boy) quickly grows up to be a warrior and bands together with a dog, a monkey and a pheasant to go on a mission to defeat the Oni (demons) who have been terrorizing his village. What happens next? You’ll have to see the show to find out.

The story was adapted by Jean Enticknap and Sue Ennis, who also wrote the score and three original songs. The traditional Momotaro song is also featured in the show along with tabletop Bunraku-style puppets made by Brian Kooser and Jean Enticknap, and origami puppets folded by Kathleen Imanishi and Jean Enticknap.
