Family Fun Lunar New Year Celebration
Did you know that eating fish for Lunar New Year brings prosperity for the year to come? Preparing the fish whole, from head to tail, is meant to ensure a good start and finish to the year! To learn more of these traditions in a fun, playful way, bring your whole family to Gateway Theatre for a joyful experience listening to a live reading of Bun Fun New Year (繽紛新年) – a humorous tale of Bunnifer and Bunnithy as they prepare a traditional Lunar New Year family feast. Welcome the Year of the Rabbit by practicing some ‘bunny dance moves’ and let your children’s imagination soar with themed craft activities we prepared for you.
Bun Fun New Year is the first episode of our free audio play series, A Year of Blessings, written and performed by the Five Blessings Collective. Episodes in this series will be released throughout the year, each celebrating a traditional Chinese festival. We hope to share the wonders of these cultural traditions by retelling the stories about these Chinese festivals. These audio plays are free to listen and more information can be found at gatewaytheatre.com
Limited spots available – get your tickets today and celebrate the Year of the Rabbit with us!
