a Japanese folktale told by HAND PUPPETS

Starring a Water Goddess and a poor, old wood-chopper, this well-known and loved Japanese folktale with its universal qualities comes to life onstage.  Will the poor, old wood-chopper come to some harm from his greedy neighbor?  Will he and his wife starve when he loses his only axe in a mysterious pond?  And how can he possibly chop wood to earn money after this misfortune?  Then the incredible Water Goddess rises from the deep before him...

"The Golden Axe" is a hand puppet show created to allow your audience to enter into the smaller world onstage.  Drawing upon her childhood years in Japan, the puppeteer deftly weaves both tale and culture into a stellar performance for your audience.
