Atlantic Cape Presents 'A Thousand Cranes' at March 27 Family Week at the Theatre Performances

February 22, 2011

Tickets are available for two free performances of “A Thousand Cranes,” a live play presented by Atlantic Cape Community College’s Community Affairs Program, in conjunction with the New Jersey Theatre Alliance, Sunday, March 27. The show is geared toward children in grades 4-9 and their families, and will be held at noon at the Cape May County Campus, 341 Court House-South Dennis Road, Cape May Court House, and at 4 p.m. in Walter Edge Theater on Atlantic Cape’s Mays Landing Campus, 5100 Black Horse Pike.

“A Thousand Cranes” by Kathryn Shultz Miller, is the true and poignant story of a young Japanese girl, Sadako Sasaki, who inspired an international peace movement. The play, performed by Centenary Stage Company, is a story about tradition, friendship and love. This stylized production combines Japanese and American language, music and dance, highlighting Japanese society in the aftermath of World War II.

Performances are free, but reservations are needed to assure a seat.
