What?

The Poet Tree is a literary show-and-tell designed to inspire a love of poetry and language and the spoken word. It’s a unique blend of storytelling, poetry, and comedy that approaches kids at a level they can understand, relate to, and appreciate. And it’s totally interactive!!

First, the show explores how ideas and words grow into poems and stories. The Tree allows us to do this in concrete, accessible terms. Then, audience members are invited up to pick the fruit off the tree. Each fruit represents one of Gary T.’s wise, witty, and wise-cracking rhymes. The course of each program is thereby determined by the audiences choices, making each performance a one-of-a-kind experience. Throw in a few silly "info-mercials" and one very important SECRET (don’t tell!) and you have one merry show.

THERE REALLY IS NO OTHER PROGRAM LIKE THIS ANYWHERE!!

The best way to inspire imagination is to see it live and in person. Get a front row seat and join us for the ride. Who knows, we might even learn something. Might.
