The Man Who Planted Trees tells the inspiring tale of a shepherd who spends a lifetime transforming a barren wasteland by planting a forest, one acorn at a time. Based on Jean Giono’s beloved short story, this internationally-acclaimed production blends puppetry, humor, and imaginative storytelling. In this multisensory performance, the audience will hear the wind, feel the rain, and smell the lavender. Both heartwarming and hilarious, The Man Who Planted Trees shows the difference one man—and his dog!—can make in the world.

All tickets: $8
