Sat & Sun | Jan 28 & 29 | 1pm & 3pm


Join PST on a trip to Japan as we follow Behind the Mask's elegant and creative adaptation of the tale of Sho and her journey!

About the show:
Cat Mountain tells the story of Sho, a young servant girl, who journeys to a strange and far-off mountain, where she hopes to find her freedom and her lost cat. But as the people she meets on the way tell her – “ No one has ever returned from Cat Mountain!” Puppetry, dance, masks, and Japanese theater-styles all combine in Behind The Mask's original adaptation of this magical folktale.

Recommended for ages 4 & up.
