World Premiere of “TREES: A New Musical”

Trees: A New Musical by local composer, Neal Learner, explores the conflict that arises when developers view land as a resource to be exploited, and environmentalists view it as a treasure to be protected. Who will prevail? 

TREES follows the story of Rachel Spring, a high school environmental activist, as she and her best friend
Henry take drastic steps to save a beloved forest from being torn down to make way for luxury
townhomes and mixed-use condos. Standing in their way is the city’s powerful Mayor Pilton and
developer Dirk Ramelton who argue that more housing is needed to keep up with booming demand.

Three performances only! Talkback with the artists and special guests after the Friday evening show.
