The Man Who Planted Trees a hit at the Children’s Festival

by Lisa Murphy-Lamb · 0 comments

Today was the first day of the Calgary International Children’s Festival.  I am of course somewhat biased being a member of the board, but I have just come home from Opening Night which was a performance of The Man Who Planted Trees.  This was one of the best performances I have seen at the Festival since I started going when my son Finlay was 2 (he’s 9 now).  It was a magical story that was also hilarious!  The show is from Scotland and has sold out numerous times at the Edinburgh Fringe Festival.  This is great for anyone 5 and older.  There are still tickets to the Saturday performances at 11:30am and at 2:00pm.


Purchase tickets for only $12.50 each.
