Greensboro College Theatre presents The Short Little Tree and the Bird That Could Not Sing

January 22, 2013

It’s good to be a little tree in the forest with the sounds of nature all around you, and plenty of fresh air and time to think. That is until the lumberjacks roll around and your little world begins falling apart at the seams.

At times like this we all could use a friend and that’s exactly what one loveable tree and a spunky bird find when The Short Little Tree and the Little Bird That Could Not Sing bring this scenario to life. It’s a children’s theatre play by award-winning master playwright Dennis Foon, and this week Greensboro College brings this quirky fable to the Triad.

After an extensive off campus school tour, Greensboro College will present two days of performances on Saturday, January 26 at 10am and 2pm, and Sunday, the 27th at 2pm in the Movement Lab, building No. 11 on the Greensboro College campus. Senior Molly Miller directs, freshman Blake Smith plays the traumatized tree, and Senior Kaitlyn Moss is the little bird who can’t carry a tune. They dropped by to chat with David Ford.
