The Bamboo Princess, adapted from a Japanese Folk tale is a firm favourite at Networks Theatre. First presented in 2001 and again in 2014 it’s based on a popular Japanese story. This comic musical tells the Legend of the Bamboo Princess Kaguya- Hime, who is found in a forest of bamboo trees. The Woodcutter and his wife who secretly take in this baby are blissfully unaware that she will one day return to the Moon to be with her other family. This traditional story has important lessons which can be drawn, such as the need to be honest, the importance of valuing people while they are still with us and accepting that nothing is forever. Nick Moore’s version transforms the story into a musical, with great songs and choreographies, fundamental for our young learners, while also being a joy for the parents to watch.
