“Was absolutely spellbound.” —Chris Haughton, Author/Illustrator of Shh! We Have a Plan

Shhh . . . We Have a Plan is a nonverbal tale featuring live performers, state-of-the-art puppetry, and delightfully offbeat music, based on the 2016 Red Clover award-winning book of the same name. The performance follows an adventuring family into the woods as they encounter a beautiful bird perched high in a tree. Each of these three madcap characters drafts plans to capture the bird, ultimately revealing the comic absurdity of obsession as well as the importance of engaging in kindness and respect toward nature.

Recommended for ages 3+.
