A unique outdoor immersive theatre experience for children grades K-5 to discover nature through the lens of a play.

The audience of young adventurers (and their caregivers) move through the outdoor forest environment to a series of locations, interacting with mythical and imaginative creatures along the way. They must quickly learn about the natural world to find clues and solve the mysterious whereabouts of Squeak and Squawk - two mice children.

Performers, costumes, music — all theatrical elements — are creatively inspired by and rooted in the natural world to enhance each audience member’s understanding and connection. Produced by Stage Partners of Stamford.
