Little-Sunshine,-Little-RaiA Thousand Cranes theatre company bring Little Sunshine, Little Rainfall, an inventive new show blending Japanese folklore with traditional music and dance, to the egg theatre at the Theatre Royal Bath for two daytime performances on Saturday 11th May.


Little Sunshine and Little Rainfall have created a magical Japanese garden. But trouble is afoot when naughty Storm Fox comes to visit. The gardeners and all the creatures have to think quickly to save their homes and families, so they turn to wise old Turtle in the hope that he has an answer.


Little-Sunshine-2This charming stage production, suitable for children aged 3 years and over, explores the importance of kindness, thoughtfulness and respect for others. Inspired by haiku and origami, Little Sunshine, Little Rainfall is performed in English with a little Japanese.


A Thousand Cranes return to the egg theatre with the same creative team behind their first production the highly successful The Paper Washi Wish which visited the egg theatre in 2011.
