Information | Cast list | Photographs | Review

The adventures of Monkey, a loveable rogue, born from simple stone but destined for the highest order have delighted both young and old across the globe for centuries. A heroic quest overcoming great adversity, encountering Gods, demons and dragons but finding friends along the way, this is a story overflowing with magic.

Join us for the premiere of this lively new adaptation of an ancient classic tale brought to the stage by a 40 strong cast of talented young performers. Trained by the exceptional musicians of Gyoko Taiko, the cast will flood the stage with live music bringing you the dramatic rhythms of this Oriental tradition.
