OPTIONAL: Additional Build-a-Dragon or Lion Session for $5.00 Immediately following (3:15 pm to 4:00 pm) and go home with your own Dragon or Lion!!!

Come journey back in time to the legends of Ancient China.
We begin with the Legend of Nian.
Ping Pong the Panda (with help from his colorful puppet friends, as well as the children in the audience) takes us on a magical journey in a beautiful story of courage, hope, and celebration.

Then Soar with China's first Dragon, the Jade Empress and her children, as she transforms and searches for the pearl of wisdom.

Bring out your inner Chi with the Kung Fu Panda and his friends, finishing up with the Dance of the Good Luck Guardian Lions and a parade of puppets.

This extremely hands-on interactive puppet show will immerse you into the sights and sounds of Ancient China.


Appx. 45 Minutes in length. But Wait, There's MORE:
A special puppet building session is available after the show (for a fee of only $5 more per participant) as we build Chinese Dragons or Lions with the children to take home. Appx. one additional hour.
