Sweet little performance. I took my daughter in law and almost four year old granddaughter, who gave me the book to read immediately prior to the show. Sweet, and important story and well done,... Including the boy shooting his water-gun into the...continued

My husband and I took my 2.5y and he really enjoyed it. It's a great intro to theatre for the toddler age. The dancing part of the show (there's quite a bit) is very underwhelming but the show is very sweet and only about 40 minutes long.

This was a simplistic reading of one of the most beautiful children's books ever written. The use of the tree was clever. The woman who played the tree was elegant. The Reader had impeccable timing. The Boy exhibited the greedy me me me of his...continued

Simple and sentimental and effective: just like the book. Seeing this classic performed live on stage was a treat: the cast of three (two actors and a narrator) made the story feel even more humanly emotional than reading the the book. Some of the...continued

Lovely cast. I think it needed more substance even for little ones.

It was a sweet play. I liked the parental tree giving - my G F felt it was sad.

I took my 7 year old nephew, who knew the story from the book.
The set, which was the tree, was clever and creative, and the actors who portrayed the tree and the boy made it easy for children to relate to a wonderful story.
It was short, about a...continued

I wrote "ok" because I love the story. But the hapless attempts of the actress to dance was laughable. She should've had some choreography direction. Her moves are more like flailing of arms.

The play was VERY well done, and not one of those over-the-top children's theatre experiences. It's one of my favorite books, and I loved how they presented it. My only complaint: we arrived at 4:32 and the play had already started. There was no...continued

We thought The Giving Tree was beautifully presented and most important, the kids did too....we brought our 4, 6 and 7 yr old grand kids and they really enjoyed it...

We see a tremendous amount of theater (with and without the kids) and I might...continued

The play was delightful. The cast managed to simply and delicately retell Shel Silverstein's famous story in manner that was beautiful and meaningful to audiences of all ages. The joy of the "Tree" was expressed through facial expression and...continued

I love the story and they were loyal 100% to it , the music-performances-dances were amazing, but it was too sad and slow for kids, I would have recommended for adults.

It was a very small and intimate venue, shorter than of course most plays and only 3 Cast Members :) But it's of course the cutest story! The set was also very creative :)

Our favorite bedtime story for my little man! He loved watching the story come to life. He wants to do it again. Great seats too!

We took a 4, 9, and 11 year old kids. They all loved it. Funny but the traffic was rough as expected for Friday night but just watching them enjoy and be intrigued with the actors made it worth it.

It was a beautiful and meaningful little play. Just long enough for the kids to watch through it. Seating is comfortable and the popcorn held us until we could go to IHOP five minutes away for brunch . My grand daughters and grandsons loved it....continued

Although my Granchildren are a bit older (8 & 6) than most of the other kids, they enjoyed the performance a great deal. We all three got teary from the beloved story.
Simply read and imaginatively performed, we were fully engaged the entire...continued
