Dayton’s own Zoot Theatre Company returns to the Discovery Series with a touching tale of love and friendship. Performed with Zoot’s unique style of puppetry, HOPE TAKES FLIGHT follows the friendship of a young girl and a bird that nests in the tree next to her home. As the pair grow older, they learn to accept the differences that make them unique, and though their relationship changes, their love for each other is always present. This original piece encourages us all to seek friendship in nature and to cherish those who recognize our differences and nevertheless, accept us for who we are.


Curriculum Connections: English/Language Arts, Science, Arts

Workshop Recommendation: Books Alive! or Character Creations

This Discovery Series show will be performed in the PNC Arts Annex where seating is limited, but the experience is not!
