The One Who Planted Trees
29 - 30 May - Capitol Theatre
Presented by Capitol Theatre Tamworth
A Spare Parts Puppet Theatre production
A puppet musical of hope
Bandicoot, Koala and a very fun-loving Frilled Neck Lizard regale their story, part truth, part myth but mostly inspiration, of a woman who transforms her world to bring about hope and happiness for herself and the world around her.
Do you ever wonder how much just one person out of 7.8 billion can really accomplish?
“The best time to plant a tree is 20 years ago, the second-best time is today.” Chinese Proverb
Inspired by Jean Giono’s The Man Who Planted Trees, The One Who Planted Trees is an inspirational story that proves just how much one person can do and will have you humming out of the theatre, pulling out the spade and watering plants into the ground.
In the face of a global climate emergency, how can we find hope? What good can one person do? This is a fun and joyous springboard for serious discussion about our world and the environment we all value.
Recommended 5+ but suitable for everyone!
