Nihonmachi Little Friends (NLF), a community based Japanese bilingual and multicultural non-profit childcare organization, is presenting their annual theater production and auction, “Dowa no Omatsuri: A Festival of Children’s Stories” on Sunday, February 26, 2017. The event takes place at the Palace of Fine Arts Theater, 3301 Lyon Street in San Francisco. 

Well-known community personalities Ms. June-ko Nakagawa and Mr. Benh Nakajo are serving as co-hosts for the program. The show features GenRyu Arts and the students of NLF. The preschoolers’ performances of “Minna no Uta” and “The Giving School” are in celebration and anticipation of NLF’s preschool building addition’s completion in the very near future. The elementary school-age children of the After School Program are staging “The Zafari Quest” about a board game that comes to life. The silent auction begins at 12pm in the lobby preceding the 1:30pm theater show, with live entertainment provided by “The Shut-Ins.” A raffle and refreshments in the lobby will follow the theater performance.

NLF has been providing quality childcare, educational programs and services for preschoolers through elementary school-age children and their families since 1975. The construction of the building addition to its historic 1830 Sutter Street facility is made possible through its on-going Plant a Seed Capital Campaign. 

Tickets to the event are $30 in advance, (2 or more are $25 each), or $40 at the door for adults. Youth 5 to 17 years are $10; and children four years and under are free. Proceeds from this fundraiser will benefit the programs and operations of NLF. For more information, contact NLF at (415) 922-8898 or email at nlfchildcare@gmail.com.
