The Waving Cat of Japan features the Japanese figurine of folk tales and legends which is said to bring good luck.

The Bunraku puppet-style fantasy mixes in traditional images borrowed from Noh and Kabuki theatre and features a wicked sorceress, a not-so-smart prince and three tricky tasks to perform.

It’s presented by Krazy Kat Theatre Company who use sign language in all their performances.

Their shows are created for children and young people of all ages and are brought to life by an integrated company of deaf and deaf aware performers.

The show is ideal for ages three up and is fully signed. For tickets, call the box office on 01524 598500 or go online at www.dukes-lancaster.org
