This new show combines the kyogen play "Utsubo-Zaru" (The Monkey-Skin Quiver) and the Japanese folk tale "Momo Taro" (Peach Boy) in  fun and fast-paced Japanese and English. An English-speaking travelling organ grinder and his monkey encounter a Japanese lord and servant out hunting, and trouble begins.  The show is designed so that speakers of either language can understand it, with most of the songs sung in both J and E. 

Kyogen is 600 year old Japanese comic theatre. Most plays are 20-40 minutes long, feature few actors (2 or 3 in many plays), and rely on voice and gesture to convey the story on a setless stage and with very few props.  "Utsubo-Zaru" usually features a boy of 4 or 5, the son of another kyogen actor, in his first role on the stage.  We have made some adjustments to the story in order to introduce some other aspects of Japanese culture as well. 

"Momo Taro" is probably the best known of all Japanese folk tales, in which the hero, born out of a peach, goes on a quest to fight the ogres. Along the way he is joined by three other characters; in this way the story parallels "The Wizard of Oz." 

The cast for the June and July performances featured 7 actors, the fall and winter shows 14.
