Celebrate Lunar New Year with an award-winning puppetry show “The Dragon King”, a heart-warming underwater fantasy based on Chinese folklore. A terrible drought has overtaken the land, and all the world has turned brown and lifeless. The Dragon King is ruler of the waters, and the people are beginning to wonder why he has not brought the precious rains in such a very long time. The tale stars an intrepid Grandmother who journeys to the bottom of the sea to seek the Dragon King and save the world from this terrible drought. With colorful sea creatures, an exciting adventure, and all the gorgeous puppets of the Tanglewood Marionettes, the Dragon King is sure to thrill young and old alike. 

Founded in 1993 by Anne Ware and Peter Schaefer, Tanglewood Marionettes is a nationally touring marionette theater based in New England, and the recipient of two Citations for Excellence in the Art of Puppetry, awarded each year by The American Center of the Union Internationale de la Marionnette.
