Shh! We Have a Plan

March 23 - 29, 2018 Temple Theater

Cahoots NI (Northern Ireland)

Grades preK-3

This nonverbal tale based on the Chris Haughton book of the same name features magical illusions, music, and puppetry. Follow the delightful journey of a family adventuring through the woods and their madcap ideas to capture a beautiful bird. Sounds simple, but the quest soon becomes an obsession and the obsession becomes the absurd! Join us as the youngest teaches everyone the importance of kindness and treating nature with respect.
