Below is our 2017-2018 Show Schedule. If you haven't experienced Thistle Theatre, we look forward to introducing your family or group to our family of fun and exciting characters.

Thistle Theatre is the only performing arts organization in the Pacific Northwest that specializes in Bunraku puppets, an ancient Japanese style of puppetry. The puppeteers, dressed head-to-toe in black to suggest invisibility, operate all of the character’s limbs by hand from behind.

In this Hans Christian Andersen story, a Pixie lives comfortably with a greedy Grocer and his wife. One day he observes a poor Poet give up food in exchange for an old book.

The Tiger and the Dried Persimmon

 

~ Korea
A young tiger, thinking he is the fiercest in all Korea, ventures down a mountainside in search of food. He overhears a mother trying to stop her daughter from crying with a piece of dried persimmon (kotgum). The silly tiger thinks the kotgum must be a very frightening creature if it can instantly stop a child from crying. Afraid that the kotgum will find him, the Tiger hides in the barn where a thief is hiding!
