KEENE, NH- Rapping pandas, dancing appliances, fire-belching dragons, and romping middle-aged lovers populate the Redfern’s Mainstage Theater on Thursday, March 23, when the wickedly creative puppet troupe Wakka Wakka presents “Made in China!” Inspired by true events, this satirically comic puppet musical explores the important subjects of human rights, consumerism, and morality with humor and heart.

Making its New England debut after an Off-Broadway hit run, “Made in China” follows the unlikely love story between a lonely middle-aged woman and a Chinese ex-pat, who find themselves on a wild adventure in modern day China.

“Made in China” flits freely between political commentary and surrealistic comedy, all brilliantly portrayed by 30 puppets, seven actors, animated video, and a hilarious musical score. inspired by both American and Chinese traditions. Recommended for ages 16 and older. Purchase tickets now at
