As part of our new Friday Family Fun morning series, Payomet presents the Tanglewood Marionettes in The Dragon King on Friday, July 14 at 10:00am.
A terrible drought has overtaken the land, and all the world has turned brown and lifeless. The Dragon King is ruler of the waters, and the people are beginning to wonder why he has not brought the precious rains in such a very long time. An underwater fantasy based on Chinese folklore, Tanglewood Marionettes’ latest production tells the tale of a wise Grandmother who journeys to the bottom of the sea to seek the Dragon King, and the answers to why he has forsaken the land above. With colorful sea creatures, an exciting adventure, and all the visual splendor that audiences have come to expect from a Tanglewood Marionettes production, The Dragon King is a heart-warming tale that will thrill young and old alike.
The production is approximately 45 minutes in length and includes a question-and-answer session following the performance.
Ticket Price: $10*
