Feature Performance


April 11 - May 11, 2014

Adapted for the stage by Jeannine Coulombe.

Directed by Jane Staab.

Inspired by her father’s stories of the Jade Dragon and the Old Man of the Moon, young Minli sets off on an extraordinary journey to change her family's fortune. She encounters magical creatures along the way, including a dragon that accompanies her on her quest, and finds her questions answered in unexpected ways. WFT proudly presents the East Coast premiere of Grace Lin’s Newbery honored novel.

Wheelock Family Theatre is a professional, non-profit theatre associated with Actor’s Equity, the union of professional actors and stage managers. Located on the campus of Wheelock College, Wheelock Family Theatre seeks to improve the lives of children and families through the shared experience of live theatre.

Since 1981, Wheelock Family Theatre has interpreted every production in American Sign Language for patrons who are deaf. WFT was one of the first theatres in the country to audio-describe productions for patrons who are blind and the first to open caption all performances for patrons who are hard of hearing. WFT was instrumental in introducing these services and new technologies to other professional theatres in Boston. Access is not limited to our audiences—actors who are blind, deaf, and physically disabled are given unprecedented performance opportunities on our stage.

Recommended for adults, teens and youth 5+.
