More about… “Monkey Wreaks Havoc in Heaven” by Galapagos Puppet Theater

Thursday | February 3 | 10:30AM

The Wednesday, February 2nd performance has been canceled due to the winter storm and street parking ban in effect in Brookline.

About the show: The magical Monkey King makes mischief in the Heavens, eating all of the Jade Emperor’s peaches and Laotze’s elixirs. Performed with traditional Chinese puppets, Chinese music, and intricate choreography.

Performed with hand puppets. This show is recommended for ages 5 and up.

About Galapagos Puppets: Margaret Moody loves the way two hands and a few puppets can present a whole story. She studied with master puppeteer Li Tien-lu of Taiwan for three years, and continues to use the intricate puppets and choreography of Chang Chung Hsi (‘theater of the palm of the hand’) in performance. Margaret lives in Arlington with her family and many puppets.

Galapagos Puppet Theater was founded in 1987 by Margaret Moody and Madeleine Beresford. Their work has been funded in part by grants from organizations such as the Henson Foundation and the Puffin Foundation.
