Redmond play to tell the story of A Thousand Cranes

November 27, 2017 by  

At the end of World War II, a young girl in Japan began making paper cranes as a symbol of her wish for peace in the world, and a production taking to the stage in Redmond in the New Year will tell the story of her efforts.

The performances, which will be taking place throughout the early part of 2018, are being staged by the Second Story Reparatory company, which performs live theater in Redmond Town Center. While all ages are welcome, parents have been reminded that there will be special times that have been planned for families with school-age children and others that are more suitable for the younger set.

While the play does deal with topics like nuclear war, according to the organizers, the story it tells is suitable for any age. A stationery printing company can supply programs and other printed items for this type of event.

This production, which relates the true to life story of Sadako Sasaki, will be staged on Saturdays and Sundays from January 13 until February 3. Two performances will be taking place each day, and tickets for adults are priced at $12 each. Children’s tickets are also available at a discounted price. For those looking for more information, this can be found on the reparatory company’s website.
