Why the Lion Danced 2011

by Carey English

Tom and his family run a takeaway. It’s New Year’s Eve and Nana’s busy putting up the paper cuts while Dad is trying to keep up with the orders. Tensions are running high when Tom accidently rips a cherished decoration, but all is forgiven when the family unite to tell the ancient tell of why the lion dances at New Year. This delightful show for families toured to schools and theatre venues for two months.
