A Different Pond 


An unforgettable story about a simple event—a pre-dawn fishing trip for a boy and his dad—graces our JC Studio in the spring. Our world premiere, based on the Caldecott winning book by celebrated local poet, Bao Phi, unfolds through music and puppetry to reveal an important tale about family and immigration. In the early morning on a lake shore in South Minneapolis a father tells his son about a different pond in their homeland of Vietnam. The young boy learns of a world bigger than the one he’s known and how a family faces daily struggles together.
