    Shadows of the Samurai
    From snow spirits and samurai heroes to dragon kings and dancing goblins, celebrate the
    supernatural stories of Old Japan! The shadows of the mysterious East come to life in a
    family-friendly blend of storytelling and mime, lively artwork, and traditional Japanese
    music. Is the winter wind just a gust of cold air, or a living spirit of the snow? Is the
    dragon king a villain or a hero, in his underwater palace? And why does the boy always
    draw cats? Let East meet West in this fairy tale world from across the centuries and
    around the globe!

    Tickets are only available at the door. General admission is $15, $5 for under 12.

All shows are at the The Charles Brown IceHouse at 56 River St. in Bethlehem, PA. Doors open one half-hour before showtime.

About IceHouse Tonight

“But the Lehigh! Those were great boating days! Almost everybody spent their evenings on the water, and music floated there … until midnight many times a week. We had carnivals on the river about once a fortnight. … The residents were as one family.”

— Charles Schwartz, Bethlehem, 1852

In November 2011, representatives of six regional arts organizations met to discuss the viability of creating a true sustainable arts performance series at The Charles Brown IceHouse on Sand Island. The IceHouse Tonight was the result of that meeting. The series, dedicated to the work of emerging regional artists and regional arts organizations, was established as a blend of performance disciplines including music, dance, theater, film and poetry.

Three years and some 70 performances later, The IceHouse Tonight is steadily developing as a model sustainable arts venue; a vehicle for creative place-making. Focusing on benefit performances for arts non-profit organizations and premiere performances of new works, the series provides rental fees, the whole gate, and the proceeds of all concessions to our regional artistic partners. Just as we build our roster of regional artists and arts organizations, we hope you will join our cultural initiative by being regular supporting members of our IceHouse Tonight audience.
