A Thousand Thanks:

The Gift of Sadako and Her Cranes

We're pleased to offer free access to this original show by Thomas Hitoshi Pruiksma to support families learning at home.

In this show with music, which premiered at Vashon Center for the Arts, Thomas uses magic, story, and song to explore Sadako and the Thousand Paper Cranes by Eleanor Coerr.

The show also draws upon The Complete Story of Sadako Sasaki by Sadako’s brother Masahiro Sasaki and was developed with support from 4Culture.

You can watch a song from the show to the left, and the entire performance below.

This special version presented by Cozy Grammar will be available for free for a limited time.

You can learn more about Thomas's work as an author, poet, teacher, and performer at thomaspruiksma.com.
