Waygook-in Wonderland
Description and Details

Changwon Community Theatre is proud to present our latest production, Waygook-in Wonderland. This fast-paced comic show captures what it’s like to not only be a foreigner in this Land of Morning Calm, but what it’s like for Koreans to interact with foreigners here as well. 

“We are all foreigners in the world,” says director Cinthia and, under her guidance, a cast of thousands (or at least a couple of dozen) have created an original show that captures this in skits, songs and dance. 

There is something for everyone in this unique show that runs one day only, Saturday, June 11, at 3 pm and 8 pm.

It’s a fundraiser for the Gyeongnam Multicultural Family Support Center and takes place at the Bongrim Theater of Changwon University.

Tickets cost 10,000 won (5,000 won with student ID). They may be purchased at O’Briens Irish Pub in Changwon or by leaving your ticket request on this event page and making a bank transfer to Changwon Community Theatre (Kyongnam Bank Account No. 221-0019-5595-07). 

Specify how many tickets you desire and whether you wish to see the 3 pm or 8 pm show, make the bank transfer and your tickets will be available for pick-up at the door a half hour before showtime. This show is recommended for ages 12 and up.

We hope to see you all there!
