Corbian the Dinosaur
Ordway Music Theater

Recommended Grades 2-8
Corbian the Dinosaur is a truly unique theater experience featuring larger-than-life, glow-in-the dark characters that light up the stage. Created by a magical scientist, Corbian is much more than a pet! As Corbian’s animal instincts take over, the scientist creates a heart for him and encourages him to experience life beyond the scientist’s workshop. Join Corbian as he meets a gangly ostrich, a beautiful fish and a menacing red dinosaur that help him learn the value of compassion, friendship and love.

The Man Who Planted Trees
F.K. Weyerhaeuser Auditorium
May 31-June 3, 2011

This magical, comical and multi-sensory performance by Puppet State Theater Company of Scotland is an adaptation of Jean Giono’s ecological fable and tells the inspiring story of a French shepherd and his dog. Together they set out to restore a ruined ecosystem by planting a forest, acorn by acorn, tree by tree. An unforgettable story, The Man Who Planted Trees reminds us that one man and his dog can change the world!
