The Monkey King has high hopes for his time in the Heavens. He wants to meet the Gods and lovely Goddesses, and learn the secrets of long life. But when he isn’t invited to the New Year Banquet, Monkey’s appetites for mischief — and peaches — get the better of him! Will Monkey learn the ways of goodness?

Join Margaret Moody for this episode of the traditional Chinese epic “Journey to the West” told with traditional Taiwanese puppets and choreography, which she studied with the I Wan Jan Traditional Hand Puppet Troupe in Taiwan. 

And please stay after the show for oolong tea and a chance to dance with a New Year lion!
