Transcript of The Tale of Three Trees

The Tale of Three Trees Amy Bever The Story 'The first little tree looked up at the stars twinkling like diamonds above him' White Fairy Lights
Silver Lametta Scenery Costume 'Once upon a mountain top, three little trees stood and dreamed of what they wanted to become when they grew up' The first tree desired to be a treasure box and ends up as a mere feeding trough, the second desired to be a strong sailing ship, and ultimately becomes a small fishing boat, carrying stinking fish, and the third wanted to remain planted and point Heavenward, as the tallest tree in the forest, is made into lumber that is fashioned into a cross. Design Ideas Music 'Frost Waltz': In the beginning when ambitions are being told
'On The Shore': When the trees are chopped down, and their dreams come true 'The second little tree looked out of the small stream trickling by on it's way out to the ocean' Blue flowing material being rippled 'The third little tree looked down the valley below where the busy men and busy women worked in a busy town' Techniques Alternating narrator throughout
Puppetry - Third Tree + Woodcutters?
Audience Interaction - Asking what their dreams are, Children taking the jewelery out the treasure chest, sitting in the ship, writing on paper etc. Adapting the Story Generalizing story to remove bias and/or offense
Appeals to wider audience The first and second trees will have their dreams come true, being turned into a treasure chest, and sailing boat.

The third tree made into a Crucifix will be changed to paper to contain the most beautiful stories and words Link to Curriculum 'They begin to read and write independently and with enthusiasm' This is reflected when we ask an audience member to write on some paper, perhaps write their name so it looks like they wrote the book. 'learn how to listen carefully to what other people are saying, so that they can remember the main points' The children have to remember each tree's dream so that they understand they each got what they wanted. 'telling a story through tableaux or using a narrator' They will understand why our narration is used Why it suits my target audience Children's Stories and Television Rule of three: Goldilocks And The Three Bears, The Three Little pigs
Nature: The Gruffalo, Little Red Riding Hood Tree Fu Tom: Cbeebies show set in 'Treetopolis' and based around nature which is reflected in the characters outfits (the same as in my adaptation) Moral Message Much like in many Disney Films: Cinderella, The Princess and the Frog, and The Little Mermaid it encourages the children to follow their dreams and ambitions, no matter how far away they may seem. Children's Theatre Companies Tutti Frutti They aim to 'delight children with imaginative, visual and meaningful story-based theatre' and want to create multicultural theatre so children embrace the difference in their cultures to others.
