Musubi Man

by Lee Cataluna, adapted from the book by Sandi Takayama

At Tenney Theatre: 

Saturday-January 29 @ 11am

Sunday- February 6 @ 2pm

“Run, run, as fast as you can! You no can catch me, I’m one musubi man!” The pidgin-speaking Musubi Man, like the gingerbread man in the classic tale, is determined not to be eaten and he sets out on a wild journey that takes him all the way to the sea. Designed to foster young children’s pre-literacy development, the story gives plenty of opportunity for kids to interact and help with the storytelling.

Frequently Asked Questions

Will these change as the Covid 19 situation changes?

What if we need to cancel?

We understand that these are uncertain times and simply ask that you provide as much advanced notice as possible. Similarly, if we need to suspend programming or cancel a performance we will work directly with you to reschedule the performance at no additional cost.

In the event it becomes necessary for actors to be masked, we have worked to ensure that the limitations of the moment do not impact the quality of professional theatre you expect from HTY. If you have serious concerns we encourage you to check out some of our digital work.
