See Treehouse Shakers’ play with shadow puppetry, original music, and movement  Adapted from the picture book by Mara McEwin and choreographed by Emily Bunning, this thoughtful story lends itself to themes of diversity, creating empathy & celebrating individualism. A young boy, Rink Bowagon, lives on top of Lonesome Mountain with his unusual family of rattlesnake tamers and shape-shifters. The townspeople agree that Rink’s family are quite strange, but they are unaware of Rink’s spectacular gifts. Whenever the moon is full, Rink sprouts beautiful flowers all over his body. When a new girl, Angelina, moves to town, Rink’s life truly begins to grow. Suitable for ages 4-10.
