Merritt Anne and the Mighty Oak

April 15 - 18, 2021

By Laura King

As a family gathers under the mighty oak tree that drapes their hometown to lay one of their own to rest, young cousins Merritt Anne and Wyatt plot their escape for happier pastures. They sneak away from the obligatory post-funeral meal in search of adventure. They climb trees, fish for tadpoles, sing their favorite songs, and plan a future full of fun and fearlessness. But threaded through every moment is the remembrance of the funeral and all that it means.

Note: This production is a special event and not included in the 2020-2021 Season Subscription Packages.
