Inspired by traditional Chinese folklore and Puppet Theater, Songbirds is reminiscent of an ancient tale. It is a story about a pair of song birds beloved by a young Chinese girl in a village in China. Under the moonlight of the Mid-Autumn Festival celebration, offerings are made to the moon with brightly lit lanterns and a dramatic Dragon Dance. During the festivities, fireworks cause one of the cherished song birds to escape from its cage leaving its mate and the young girl heartbroken. Through a twist of fate, good fortune comes to all when a secret message hidden inside a  traditional moon cake is discovered.

Strings & Things Puppet Theatre’s enchanting story of Songbirds, features a charming array of shadow and rod puppets in the telling this heartwarming tale.
