Arbor The Tree
Arbor tells the story of a tree pushed from his home and his fight to preserve his future. Featuring amazing woodland creature puppets, and beautiful visual storytelling, we learn how Arbor came to be. Encouraging the audience to plant and nurture their own trees, Arbor will give each family a sapling/seed to take home, leaving a legacy that will last for generations.
