About the Program

Celebrate the strength and beauty of LA’s cultural diversity with Roar! Tiger, a fun-filled puppet show about friendship by One Grain of Sand Puppet Theater.

In the show, a curious young Korean tiger travels the world and meets a jaguar from the Americas. But the two animals run into trouble because they can’t understand each other. How will they learn to overcome their differences and get along? This tabletop puppet show uses a mix of folk art–style puppets with live drumming. Performed in English, Korean, and Spanish.

One Grain of Sand Puppet Theater is a collective of artists, musicians, performers, and educators who draw from the rich ancient tradition of puppet and mask art—to share the ordinary/extraordinary stories of everyday people; to reclaim and celebrate the wealth of cultures, traditions, and folklore; and to build communities while creating theatrical rituals and processions that explore the hopes, dreams, and challenges of these times. Since its establishment in 2001, One Grain of Sand Puppet Theater has performed and provided hundreds of puppet workshops in the greater Los Angeles area.

Note: An ASL interpreter will be present at this performance.
