Year of the Dragon at Greenwich Library

| No Comments
Grace Chang and her dragon, Jin Jin, will light up the stage in celebration of Chinese New Year, the Year of the Dragon, on April 14 at 2 p.m. in the Cole Auditorium. Chang promises an incredible celebration with puppets, magical illusions, acrobats, mime and storytelling that will touch the hearts of children, and the inner-child within us all.

GraceChang2012-2.JPG Chang was born in Beijing, China, to a family of famous entertainers. At a young age, Chang learned the art of magic/illusion from her grandfather, often in the courtyards of the Forbidden City. Some years later, Chang was selected as star illusionist and ringmaster in an internationally acclaimed Chinese circus. She is a multi-talented entertainer and performer and has appeared on stage and screen in both China and the United States, including the film The Joy Luck Club.

Chang's second book, Jin Jin and Rain Wizard, has given Chang the opportunity to introduce Chinese culture, history and folklore to children all over the world through her books and colorful stage shows.
