This holiday season, Wild Rice proudly presents Momotaro and the Magnificent Peach, a spectacular new musical adaptation of the beloved Japanese folktale. Taking inspiration from anime, J-pop and all things Japanese, this epic joy ride is the perfect festive treat for the entire family!
For all of his young life, Momotaro has lived on Peach Paradise, an idyllic island so beautiful that it must have been blessed by the heavens above. But, one dreadful day, a poisonous wave of pollution engulfs Momotaro’s home and threatens the lives of everyone he loves.
Determined to save the day, Momotaro enlists the help of three animal companions – Aiko, the Shiba Inu; Yuki, the Snow Monkey; and Hiroto, the Crane. Together, they track down clues that set them on a collision course with the wicked President Oni and his sly henchman, Captain Kit.
Cheeky and charming, Momotaro and the Magnificent Peach is the inspiring story of one boy who changes the world by standing up for what he believes in. It is also a heartfelt celebration of the power of family, friendship and community, and a timely reminder that we can all play our part in caring for our planet.
