In my Granny’s garden

August 3 – 20, 2023

Performances, followed by an interactive workshop, run approximately one hour with no intermission.

Corn! Green Beans! Collard Greens! Cabbage!

In My Granny’s Garden helps young audiences understand that food doesn’t just come from the grocery store: it’s grown in the ground. Audiences of all ages can enjoy a rich sensory experience as Granny explains why the food that comes out of her garden tastes so good.

In My Granny’s Garden is made specially for children ages 0 – 5 years and their adult friends and family.

All performances are FREE. Tickets are not required, but we invite you to register in case weather changes any of our plans.

Each location has performances at 9:30am and 11:30am. Performances last approximately one hour.
