PUPPET SHOWS at Yume Japanese Gardens on December 13

ISSUN-BOSHI – “Little One-Inch”

December 13, 2020 from 2:00 pm to 3:00 pm / from 3:30 pm to 4:30 pm

“Tiny though you be, you can still realize big dreams, including finding lasting love. So learns Issun-boshi, diminutive hero of the charming Japanese fairytale “Little One-Inch.

As his name indicates, Little One-Inch’s stature is minature. But his adventures are grand, and so is his eventual bliss: he plies a rice bowl as a boat and uses a chopstick as an oar, wields a needle to valiantly defend a lovely princess against a huge ogre, and wins her grateful heart and hand in a happily-ever-after marriage.

“Little One-Inch” will be staged by The Red Herring Puppets. Lisa Sturz, artistic director of the company, is an Emmy award-winning puppeteer who has worked with Walt Disney Imagineering, PBS, NBC, and the Lyric Opera of Chicago. With her fellow puppeteers, she brings this centuries-old Japanese coming-of-age story to memorable, colorful life.”
