In this contemporary folk tale, Walleye Kid: The Musical tells the story of a modern day Minnesota couple who long for a child. One night while ice fishing, they reel in a colossal walleye, from which emerges a Korean baby girl. When the girl turns eight, she takes a magical journey to the land of her birth and back as she explores her life between two cultures. Songs, mask dance, and powerful drum rhythms create a timeless setting for this tale that conveys the unique challenges and rewards of adoption.
