"Hao Bang Ah, Sheep!" by Chinese Theatre Works

Saturday, April 11, 2015
1:00pm – 2:00pm

Storrs Campus
Ballard Institute Theater, 1 Royce Circle, Storrs Center

As part of its Spring Puppet Performance Series, the Ballard Institute and Museum of Puppetry at the University of Connecticut will present "Hao Bang Ah, Sheep!" by Chinese Theatre Works on Saturday, April 11, 2015. There will be two showings, at 1:00 p.m. and 3:00 p.m., in the Ballard Institute Theater located at 1 Royce Circle in Storrs Center.

This performance, written and directed by Kuang-Yu Fong and Stephen Kaplin (a UConn Puppet Arts alumnus), features a jolly selection of hand-puppet vignettes, many based on popular songs and well-known Chinese sayings. While some parts of the program are performed in Chinese, all include English translations and explanations.

The audience will be introduced to other animals of the Chinese zodiac, and also learn about Chinese New Year customs and foods. Audience participation makes this Chinese culture and language-learning experience accessible to even the youngest audience member.

Ticket costs: Adults: $10; Students: $7; Kids: $5.

Tickets will be sold in advance through the Connecticut Repertory Theatre Box Office, located in the lobby of the Nafe Katter Theatre at 820 Bolton Rd, Storrs CT 06269. Tickets may be purchased in person at the box office, by calling (860) 486-2113, or online through the CRT website. A $3.00 surcharge will be added to any purchases made online or over the phone. Tickets may also be purchased at the Ballard Institute on the day of performance. There will be a limited number of seats. For more information, call (860) 486-8580 or visit http://bimp.uconn.edu.
