Tales from the Trees
August 25 @ 2:00 pm| £6
Trees are awesome! They shelter us and protect us, they enchant us with their mystery and beauty, and they inspire our stories, myths and fairy tales…
But trees also provide us with food, fuel and wood, their roots bind the soil together, they produce oxygen for us to breathe…Trees hold the future of humanity in their branches. Let Squashbox Theatre be your guide to the tremendous world of Trees!
Say hello to the friendly Forest Ranger, our resident outdoor expert; meet the mysterious old Wizard of the Woods, a friend to all the forest creatures; gaze at the beautiful Dryad, mystical spirit of the trees; encounter crazy characters, woodland wonders, and fantastic flora and fauna. Learn how to identify different trees, discover the wonder of photosynthesis, gasp at deadly carnivorous plants and watch flowers growing before your very eyes.
‘Tales from the Trees’ is a terrific tangle of puppetry, storytelling, live music and comedy, with a theme that embraces natural history, folklore and ecology.
Listen! The trees have tales to tell…
