Making New Work for the Very Young

In two very short weeks, Treehouse Shakers will premiere our new work for the very young, Olive & Pearl at the beautiful Flushing Town Hall in New York City. Specifically made for the toddler and preschooler, Olive & Pearl follows the day in the life of a little girl Olive, and her grandmother Pearl, who live within a grassy, hillside knoll. Intimately staged, audiences sit within Granny’s home, and explore the primary feelings of what it means to be truly at home. Throughout their day the characters play, go on an imaginary journey to the moon, sing songs, and dance. Granny recants stories of her own childhood home, while sharing rhymes and poetry. Additional characters are portrayed through puppetry, layering further meanings of home: a robin in a nest, a fish in its bowl, and a mouse in its hole. Continue Reading.
