Seedfolks

From Children's Theatre Company
Minneapolis, Minnesota
 
 

Meet the fascinating folk of Gibb Street. From Ana, a crotchety old Romanian woman, to Gonzalo, a feisty Latino teenager, a fractured neighborhood comes together when spirited, young Kim plants some precious beans in a nearby vacant lot. Based on the book by Newbery Medal-winning author Paul Fleischman, 14 distinct and diverse characters are brilliantly brought to life by Sonja Parks in this extraordinary one-woman show. Sowing seeds of hope and tending dreams to full bloom, SEEDFOLKS flourishes with raw, inspiring stories of neighbors you’ll never forget.

 
"A tale of healing and restoration with agility, empathy and a whole lot of heart"Star Tribune "Parks displays a magnificent gift for capturing the voices of people from distinctly different cultures and life experiences, and compelling you to listen."Twin Cities "Seedfolks demonstrates how Americans from different cultural, racial and religious backgrounds can organically become a community."

Getting to Know Children's Theatre Company

Children's Theatre Company started in Minneapolis in 1965 as a small theater company called The Moppet Players. In the years since, they've grown significantly and have even become the first-ever theater for young audiences to win a Tony Award for Outstanding Regional Theater. Although their name and scope have changed since they were founded, their mission remains: to bring creative dance and theater to kids in their community. Much of the theater's repertoire comes from adapting classic kids' literature, inviting their audiences to futher immerse themselves in their favorite stories.


Did You Know?

  • The Children's Theatre Company has created over 200 plays since they were founded, including A Year with Frog and Toad, which was presented at the New Vic in 2002.
  • They regularly partner with a local hospital to give newborns a voucher to see one of their shows anytime until their fifth birthday. Theater is that baby's first ever birthday present!
  • The Children's Theatre Company's scenic and costume designs are particularly rich, as the company prides itself on working with talented designers with varied backgrounds.
