Space dragons! Super-powered siblings! And the Imminent End of the Universe! Join PFP at Dragon Fest for a FREE storytelling staged reading of The Wong Kids in the Secret of the Space Chupacabra Go! by Lloyd Suh. There’s only one performance at 2pm on Saturday, July 15, at the Theatre Off Jackson (409 7th Ave. S. in Seattle’s Chinatown International District) so don’t miss this exciting and heartwarming tale that’s perfect for the whole family!
Violet and Bruce Wong just don¹t fit in with the other Earth kids. Sure, they have superpowers, they’re just not very good ones. But when an evil beast called the Space Chupacabra appears, intent on universal destruction, The Wong Kids must travel to far reaches of outer space to stop it . . . if they can only stop bickering. Violet and Bruce ultimately realize that being different isn¹t just okay, it might just be the most important thing, like, ever.
Directed by Harry Todd Jamieson, The Wong Kids features the talents of PFP vets Brad Walker, Stephanie Kim-Bryan, Tadd Morgan and Kevin Lin, as well as newcomers Mi Kang and Rachel Guyer-Mafune!
