HAO Bang AH, Rabbit!

January 27 @ 3:30 pm - 4:30 pm


Written and Directed by: Kuang-Yu Fong and Stephen Kaplin

Puppet Design and Construction by: Stephen Kaplin

 “Hao Bang Ah” is a common Chinese expression meaning “Great!” or “Well done!”  Each year, CTW celebrates the Lunar New Year season with an original “budaixi” (traditional Chinese glove-puppet) production that features the 12 animals of the Chinese Zodiac. This year’s production stars the Rabbit, who will preside over a jolly selection of wild puppet skits, dances, popular songs  and well-known Chinese sayings celebrating the wit and wisdom of the Zodiac animals.

 Audiences will be introduced to traditional Chinese New Year customs and foods (red envelopes, fish and “nian gao”). Sing-alongs, games, and a hands-on post-show hands-on demonstration will make the Chinese language and cultural experience accessible to even the youngest audience members
