In celebration of the Sister City Relationship between Whitehorse and Matsudo, Box Hill Community Arts Centre presents Sean Murphy’s GHOST JAM! and the The Boite’s Esno.
Kids love sounds that go “BOOM!” and ghosts that go “BOO!”
The show is a hilarious re-imagining of Kwaidan, a trailblazing anthology of Japanese ghost stories. Featuring a soundtrack by multi-instrumentalist Sophie Unsen, Ghost Jam! will enthrall adults and children alike with its pairing of booming music and silly, spooky storytelling.
Beginning in 2015 with development support from the Japan Foundation, Ghost Jam! packs in education with entertainment, serving as a thrilling introduction to music and storytelling traditions fresh to many Western audiences. And with Japan hosting the 2020 Olympic Games, what better time to learn more about the country beyond sushi and Super Mario? Get ready for gasps, giggles and ghosts you won’t soon forget!
Ticket price is per person: Adults $5 and Children $5
Suitable for families with children aged 5-12 years, children 4 years and under will be admitted for free.
