Hanako and the Cherry Tree (BYT-Crossroads Theatre)
Thistle Theatre presents:
Hanako and the Cherry Tree
Puppets tell Bizarre Tale from Japan!

Mr. Yama, a wealthy miser, meets a young girl who has climbed his cherry tree to retrieve her kite. Unwilling to share any of the tree's bounty, Mr. Yama accidentally swallows a cherry pit and a tree grows out of his head! A bizarre series of events follow including encounters with mythical Japanese creatures including a Tengu (mountain goblin), an Oni (ogre) and a serpent! Humor, danger and excitement fill this tall-tale told with Bunraku, shadow and blacklight puppets.

Thistle Theatre is the only performing arts organization in the Pacific Northwest that specializes in Bunraku puppets, an ancient Japanese style of puppetry. The puppeteers, dressed head-to-toe in black to suggest invisibility, operate all of the characters limbs by hand from behind.

Funded in part by 4Culture/King County Lodging Tax.
