A nonverbal tale featuring magic, music, and puppetry based on the Chris Haughton book of the same name. Follow the delightful and surprising journey of a family adventuring through the woods — when they see a beautiful bird perched high in a tree, each of these three madcap characters have a plan to capture it!

Sounds simple, but the quest soon becomes an obsession and the obsession becomes the absurd! Where will it all end? Join us as the youngest teaches everyone that kindness and treating nature with respect is more important than getting what you want at any cost.

Prepare to be enchanted and amazed by this new and exciting theatrical adventure for young children.
