Monkey King Ticket Giveaway

Comments 67 by Rebecca Bollwitt

Vancouver is hosting the North American debut of the kung fu rock musical Monkey King. Running February 5th through the 27th the story is based on the Chinese legend Journey to the West.

Monkey King

This hit musical from the Beijing Olympics is the only running musical during the Vancouver 2010 Olympics. Visitors and locals alike can catch this production that will have international appeal for all ages.

Featuring a cast of over 60 singers, dancers, acrobats, musicians and martial artists- the show tells the story of a monk’s quest to recover a sacred relic. His journey sees him joined by unlikely warrior companions, beset by demons and monsters, and matching wits with kings and gods. The epic narrative is played out through a series of breath-taking kung fu battles, spellbinding dance sequences and an original, driving rock score.

I have two tickets to give away for the 7:30pm performance of Monkey King on February 25th at the Centre in Vancouver for Performing Arts.

      A few years ago I had the opportunity to work with Sakai Masaaki in Japan. He starred as Monkey in the seventies Japanese TV show, “Monkey Magic,” based on the same story.

      I taught him dice stacking so he could perform it on the New Year’s program in Japan.

    67. SherryFriday, February 26th, 2010 — 9:27am PST

      WOW! What an amazing show! Thanks again for the wonderful tickets. It is a feast for the eyes. My 11 year old niece loved it. It was her first every rock opera/musical and what a winner. If you haven’t already got tickets, it is a must see. Great for a family. There was a 5 year old in front of me and she was enthralled throughout and though she was tired you could tell she loved it. It is an upbeat retelling of an old Chinese folk tale which should appeal to everyone wanting a bit of musical theatre to round out the sports right now. If you do go, make sure to take your camera as the cast comes out to the lobby at the end for photo ops. We didn’t bring ours thinking it was the standard no photos type performance. We did buy the lovely program though for only $5 so we still have a great souvenir.
