This program gives patrons the flexibility to choose ticket prices within their means and is intended to remove barriers that prevent community members from attending the Hangar’s quality theatre programming.

Song Translations

Stoo’s Song: 

Far away,

At home on Mars

We sing to the moons

And we swim in ancient canals

We harvest the jubbafruit at every festival  

And share it’s delicious flavor with each other

We dance all night in the big red dessert 

Billy’s Song: 

Sun, little sun, warm me up a little bit

today, tomorrow, and all the week

moon, moon, with bells/rattles

five chicks and one calf

snail, snail, the sun rises at one o’clock

while Pinocchio comes out playing his drum

with a spoon and a fork

Yun’s Song

Little Shrimp , be good and go to bed to sleep

Tomorrow morning, Mother needs to quickly plant the seedlings

Grandfather watches the cows go up to the hill,

Little Shrimp, grow tall and big soon

Help your Grandfather to watch the cows and sheep
