Balancing Water – Youth Theatre Production
March 10 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm
Mangrove forests are one of the richest biomes on the planet, so why are the water birds leaving in search of a new home? Will they be welcomed by inland neighbors (a giant tractor and a colony of insects) or forced to keep moving? What stopped the flow of fresh water into the mangrove’s brackish mix? Actors ages 6-12 explore the beauty of nature when it is in balance, and problems created when it is not. Puppetry brings to life an all non-human cast of characters while exploring themes of scarcity and plenty, hoarding and sharing, and a question of whether everyone can get what they need. Original music underscores a search for home.
