Tiny Tots starring Beech Tree Puppets

Tiny Tots starring Beech Tree Puppets
* Part of our Tiny Tots Series *

We're so happy to be introducing Beech Tree Puppets to our Tiny Tots audience, now performing The Apple Tree! In this marionette show, a woman lives in the countryside with her lively dog, her shy cat and her cuddly sheep. She decides to plant an apple tree so she can make a pie for her birthday. She is surprised by an unexpected little helper. Warm colors and beautiful singing bring special magic to this 30-min. show The Apple Tree teaches about life cycle of the tree, farm animals and plants, butterflies, change of night and day, music and visual arts and contains themes of self-reliance, community, and helping.

Beech Tree Puppets features meaningful stories, artfully told with hand-crafted puppets and sets and the use of simple instruments and beautiful singing. Beech Tree Puppets has performed hundreds of shows in schools, libraries and public spaces all over the greater DC region, including The National Theater in DC, the Atlas Performing Arts Center, and at the Durant Arts Center in Alexandria with the National Puppetry Guild.

Ingrid and Ole Hass infuse Beech Tree Puppets with their professional experience in the performing and visual arts. Both hold Masters Degrees in Opera Performance from the North Carolina School of the Arts. Ole also holds a Doctor of Musical Arts Degree from UMD in College Park and Ingrid earned a BA in Studio Art from Smith College.  Since moving to the Washington DC area in 1998, they have sung and acted with many of the great performing institutions in classical music around the area.  Ingrid has been teaching art and music classes for children of all ages for 20 years.
