The presentation of The Boy Who Grew Flowers is a previously-recorded live stage production from Treehouse Shakers. It follows 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 from his head. When a new girl, Angelina, moves to town, Rink’s life truly begins to grow. Incorporating puppetry, original music, and movement, The Boy Who Grew Flowers is a thoughtful and magical story that lends itself to themes of diversity, creating empathy and celebrating individualism.

This performance is ideal for kids ages 5-10 and their families. It’s adapted from Barefoot Book’s picture book by Jen Wojtowicz, play adaption by Mara McEwin and choreographed by Emily Bunning. It is also a virtual Schooltime event on  June 2. Click here for details.
