Adapted for the stage by Jeannine Coulombe. Directed by Jane Staab.

Inspired by her father’s stories of the Jade Dragon and the Old Man of the Moon, young Minli sets off on an extraordinary journey to change her family's fortune. She encounters magical creatures along the way, including a dragon that accompanies her on her quest, and finds her questions answered in unexpected ways. WFT proudly presents the East Coast premiere of Grace Lin’s Newbery honored novel.

Recommended for adults, teens and youth 5+.

This was my first time at the theater and the show was fabulous. The children around me were just spellbound during the performance.
