Elementary students and their families invited to The Little Farm Show March 9

Feb. 8, 2017

Elementary students and their familiesare  invited to The Little Farm Show, a musical extravaganza about farming, food, and the environment. This family performance is presented by the NACL Theatre, an award-winning theatre ensemble based in the Catskills.

The show will take place on Mar. 9 at 6 p.m. at Rutherford Elementary School.

From the inception of the solar system, to sunset on Millicent’s farm, the Magnificent MacDonald Twins explore the question, “where does your food come from?” giving audiences a whirlwind spin of “The Greatest Show on Dirt!”

Created and performed by Tannis Kowalchuk and Brett Keyser, the vaudeville-inspired performance kicks up some dirt with live original music and high-spirited performances. The play plows through agriculture’s history from 10,000 BCE, exploring sustainability, local food systems, and organic farming. Steeped in history, philosophy, and a wheel-barrow full of information, The Little Farm Show not only entertains young and old, but asks us to consider our food choices and the effect those decisions have on our bodies, the environment, and society.
