The Man Who Planted Trees at Segerstrom Center for the Arts

My children love theatre, and Segerstrom Center for the Arts always has wonderful events for children to enjoy. The Man Who Planted Trees recanted debuted yesterday, with another viewing on May 12th.

Scotland’s Puppet Theatre Company returns with its hilarious and touching production in the Samueli Theater. Based on the beloved fable and book by Jean Giono the show blends comedy and puppetry to tell the inspiring tale of a French shepherd who sets out with his dog to plant a forest and transform a barren wasteland. This uplifting story shows us that one man (and his dog) can make a significant difference in the world one seed at a time.

The Man Who Planted Trees is part the Explorer Series which is recommended for children ages 7 and above and their families. Tickets are $20 and available online at, at the Box Office at 600 Town Center Drive in Costa Mesa or by calling (714) 556-2787.
