INTO THE BLUE FOREST
About the Show
Imagine, a green tree trying to stand out in a busy green forest.
Who will the tree meet? Can the animals help?
Will the green tree ever achieve the dream of being in a blue forest?
A new intergenerational performance for children inspired by the drawings by Dario Moretti and original story by Jeffrey Tan, this immersive performance is best for children 4 to 7 years old. Children will be invited to participate and play the different characters through interactive storytelling, and along the way, learn about friendship and how we can all lend a helping hand to one another.
