“Anime Momotaro” opens January 30 at Imagination Stage



I’ve got even more tickets to give away, this time for a new production opening at Imagination Stage next weekend. Anime Momotaro, running from January 30 through March 10, reinterprets a famous Japanese folktale that teaches powerful lessons about inner strength and the ability to stand up against bullying.

Here’s the full description from the website:

An old couple in ancient Japan long for a child. They have their wish granted when a huge peach floats down the river and breaks open to reveal a baby boy. They name him Momotaro, and he grows up to be the strongest young man in all of Japan. But Momotaro’s village has a tiny problem…GIANT OGRES! Ogres have been bullying the villagers for years, and Momotaro decides he must make a stand. With the help of friends-the dog Inu, the monkey Saru, and the bird Kiji-Momotaro meets his foes face-to-face. Performed in the style of popular anime cartoons with traditional Japanese influences, this action-packed staging of Japan’s most famous folktale teaches powerful lessons about inner strength and how creativity, kindness, and cooperation win out over brute force.

Tickets start at $12, and it’s recommended for ages 5-10. Tip: Goldstar currently has a deal on select seats.

    When we visit my in laws in Vermont, I like to play a trick on my kids by taking chocolate covered almonds and placing them randomly in the snow. I tell the kids it’s moose poop and then proceed to eat it. It gets them every time.

    My favorite snowy day activity is staying inside and watching it fall 🙂 but my daughter’s favorite is throwing snowballs at me!

  11. Dorothy

    The best mornings are the mornings that I wake up before the kids and find snow on the ground or falling softly all around. I pull open all the shades and sing to my two little ones to wake up… the smiles on their faces are priceless. Then, an “explore” through Rock Creek, snowball fights, snow angel making and snowman building… followed by snuggling and hot cocoa (w/ extra marshmallows of course).

  28. Olga

    Our favorite snow day activity is spending as much time outside playing in the snow, as we can. We don’t get much snow here (unlike Russia where both my husband and I grew up), so we enjoy any chance to get out and spend time in the snow, even if it’s just walking outside watching the snowflakes fall. We simply LOVE it. : )
