Treehouse Shakers’ The Boy Who Grew Flowers is a stunning visual performance suitable for Ages 4-10. The performance is based on the picture book by Jen Wojtowicz. The story has been beautifully adapted for the stage by director Mara McEwin and choreographed by Emily Bunning.
It is the story of a young boy, Rink Bowagon, who lives on top of Lonesome Mountain with his unusual family of rattlesnake tamers and shape-shifters. The townspeople agree that Rink’s family are quite strange, but they are unaware of Rink’s spectacular gifts. Whenever the moon is full, Rink sprouts beautiful flowers all over his body. When a new girl, Angelina, moves to town, Rink’s life truly begins to grow. Incorporating shadow puppetry, original music, and movement into the play, The Boy Who Grew Flowers is a thoughtful story that lends itself to themes of diversity, creating empathy & celebrating individualism.
