A legend comes to life in this renowned play about a brave and proud warrior on a quest for freedom in this exquisite marionette show for kids and kids at heart.

This extraordinary visual spectacle does not use language but rather tableaus, traditional Indian music and magnificent puppetry techniques to tell the story that will inspire children’s imagination.

Don’t miss this one of a kind opportunity to see a master puppeteer Puran Bhat and three musicians, coming to us directly from New Delhi, India.

Reasons to Go! 

Live theatre offers the opportunity to enrich the lives of youth by teaching lessons outside of the classroom. These lessons are often inspiring and powerful, capturing the imaginations of children at an early age. Our Youth Matinees are indented to spark a passion for the arts in young children, encouraging them to ask questions and open their imaginations; we want to expose them to the worlds of fantasy, fairy tale, and adventure, all while presenting them with stories that teach valuable morals and themes.

Fostering Creativity

Odyssey Theatre is well known for its work in physical theatre and mask – brands of theatre that are excellent for young audiences keeping them engaged with great physical comedy and visually engaging presentations. This year, we want to take audience engagement one step further by inviting our young audiences to participate in a puppeteering activity following each performance.
