With the powers of a super hero and a totally mischievous spirit, the Monkey King has been one of the most beloved heroes in Chinese culture for four centuries. When Sun Wu Kong (the monkey king); Ba Jjie (the forever hungry pig); and Sha Sen (the klutzy carp) all get kicked out of heaven, they must earn their way back by accompanying the gentle Monk Tang on an extraordinarily perilous journey to transport the sacred scrolls from India to China.

The Monkey King previews March 1, 2, and 3, opens March 4, 2005 and runs through April 16, 2005.

The Children's Theatre Company, 2400 Third Avenue South, Minneapolis, MN 55404
