THE LAST FIREFLY


It begins with light and a flash. Then comes a sound, a pulse, a beat, a crash like a giant hammer smashing through the sky. The fantastic story of Boom, the child of Thunder, is a mythical adventure about discovering one’s inner strength. After being forced out of the home at the hand of a cruel stepfather, Boom sets out on a journey of self-discovery where battles against forces of nature are courageously fought. Along the way, Boom encounters conflicts with animals of an enchanted forest. This epic tale combines Japanese fairy tales and folklore to create an exciting theatrical experience for young audiences.

Recommended for ages 8+
