Courage, honor, and country! When China is forced to war with the invading Xi Xia, each family must send one man into battle. In her quest to protect her baba, our young heroine proves girls can do anything- including saving a nation. Inspired by Peking Opera, this partnership production with the Honolulu Theatre for Youth is full of music, pageantry, and humor. Best for ages 4+.

Written and directed by Alvin Chan
Music by Matt Mazzella

About Sensory-Friendly Performances:

Since 2012, Imagination Stage has been proud to offer Sensory-Friendly performances for select shows of each professional theatre season. Imagination Stage works closely with a network of theatre professionals and nationwide autism experts to prepare for this series.

Sensory-Friendly performances are designed to serve students on the autism spectrum or those with sensory sensitivities.

Adaptations for Sensory-Friendly Performances Include:

  • Pre-Visit preparatory materials
  • Adjustments to sound and light levels
  • Additional break spaces
  • Seating arrangements that allow for movement as needed

For the first time, we are offering our Sensory-Friendly patrons a host of wrap-around experiences! We're encouraging folks to come early for some activity stations in the lobby (starting at 10:15) that will teach them more about the story and the style of the show. Then, we'd love for them to stay afterward for a chance to meet the cast and take part in an "instrument petting zoo" with some of the instruments used in the performance. This Sensory-Friendly performance will offer families the chance to have a Sensory-Friendly day out!

Place: Lerner Family Theatre - 4908 Auburn Ave., Bethesda, MD

Ticket prices range from $12-25 100% refundable up until the show begins.
