The Name of the Tree – Little Red Theatre

It’s a Live event at the Allan Macpherson House & Park in Napanee! On July 28th at 2pm Little Red Theatre will be putting on a performance of The Name of the Tree.

An African Bantu tale about hungry animals who have crossed over the dry land looking for food.  They find a tree which has all the fruits of the world but the branches are much too high.  They must find the name of the tree and this is the journey to find its “special” name.

Admission is $3 per person.  Live at the Macpherson House happens throughout July and August under the event tent, in the gardens of the Macpherson House.  For more information, call 613-354-3027.  Please bring your own lawn chair or blanket.

Little Red Theatre is an independent children’s theatre company and a non-profit charity that has been bringing the magic of theatre to children for over 30 years.  Founded in 1988 by Artistic Director Jody Terio, Little Red has two divisions: a touring theatre with young professional actors that presents shows in schools across Ontario, and an after-school educational program that gives students (ages 7 – 16) in Toronto’s Roncesvalles Village area, the opportunity to create their own musical theatre production and perform it for their classmates, friends, and family.  Through each of these programs Little Red is able to do its part to make sure that live theatre, one of the most powerfully effective performing arts, is an integral part of our youth’s artistic experience.
