The Man Who Planted Trees
Saturday, February 8, 2014 at 11AM and 2PM
This multi-sensory theatrical adaptation of Jean Giono's environmental classic tells the inspiring story of a shepherd who plants a forest, acorn by acorn, transforming a barren wasteland. As much a touching tale as it is a hilarious puppet show, The Man Who Planted Trees shows us the difference one man (and his dog!) can make to the world. Puppet State Theatre Company is based in Edinburgh, specializing in live theatre with puppetry, storytelling and a dash of improvisation.
The show runs approximately 65 minutes and is suitable for adults and children over 7.

See the beauty, wonder and fun of bubbles as Casey Carle brings his amazing one-man show combining spontaneous comedy, jazz music and brilliant bubbling to The Centre. Among the many-featured skills are fantastic fog-filled bubble sculptures, blobs of helium-filled foam, bubble ping-pong, trapping an audience member (or two?) inside a gigantic soap bubble and thousands of bubbles filling the stage. Amazement and amusement for ages 5 through 95.
