WASABI.... A Dragons Tale
Sat., April 25th, 10:15, 12:45, and 2:45 (26 min)
City Hall

In this modern-minded fairy tale, Princess Aja happily contemplates her upcoming marriage to Prince Olaf. Aja's perceptions promptly vanish when fire-breathing Wasabi swoops from the sky, reduces the palace to ashes and carries off her betrothed! You will be delighted as the spunky Princess, with a little help from her wise fairy friends, outwits Wasabi to save the kingdom and the day.

Eleven exquisitely crafted marionettes perform amidst sumptuous story-book scenery. A transforming sprite, a fashionable knight, and a seven foot dragon partake in this newfangled fable, where both your imagination and the stage have no boundaries.

Following Wasabi's adventure, No Strings' Dan Baginski and Barbara Paulson host an intimate question and answer session where everyone gets a closer look at the puppeteers trade.
