Kids Storytelling New work Minnesota premiere

Sandbox Theatre presents In The Treetops, an all new play created by the ensemble. In The Treetops explores the incredible life and pioneering work of New Ulm-native Wanda Gag, the illustrator and children’s author of Millions of Cats. In The Treetops is an allegorical celebration of Wanda’s inspiring life, and is filled with music, puppetry, song and movement. The entire production is built from scratch via Sandbox’s unique creation process, and is our first show built for kids and adults alike.

A reception with complimentary beverages and small bites will follow our opening night performance, 10/6.
