the boy who grew flowers photoTreehouse Shakers’ The Boy Who Grew Flowers
Based on the Barefoot Books’ Picture Book By Jen Wojtowicz
Play Adaption by Mara McEwin

The Boy Who Grew Flowers is a stunning visual performance for audiences for ages 5-10 and their families.

Adapted from Barefoot Books’ bestselling picture book by Jen Wojtowicz, play adaption by Mara McEwin and choreographed by Emily Bunning, it is the story of a young boy, Rink Bowagon, who lives on top of Lonesome Mountain with his unusual family of rattlesnake tamers and shape-shifters.

The townspeople agree that Rink’s family are quite strange, but they are unaware of Rink’s spectacular gifts. Whenever the moon is full, Rink sprouts beautiful flowers from his head.

When a new girl, Angelina, moves to town, Rink’s life truly begins to grow. Incorporating puppetry, original music, and movement, The Boy Who Grew Flowers is a thoughtful and magical story that lends itself to themes of diversity, creating empathy & celebrating individualism.

The play is presented in The Umbrella Arts Center’s newly constructed, state-of-the-art new mainstage Theater144 as part of the 30th anniversary celebrations for Concord-based global multicultural children’s publisher, Barefoot Books.

A concurrent visual arts exhibition, Barefoot Books: 30 Years, 30 Years, will be on display over two floors of The Umbrella Arts Gallery from September 9-25, 2022.

This event is presented by Treehouse Shakers.
