The Treehouse Shakers. Hatched is the first show in BMCC Tribeca Performing Arts Center’s 2014-2015 Family Theater Season, featuring plays, musicals, puppetry, concerts and dance for all ages.
Hatched, is the original performance of a newborn chick emerging from her shell at sunrise to a strange and busy world. Told to the youngest of audience members 0-6, it is a first introduction into the theatre, while incorporating both the museum and farm. Performed through movement, handcrafted puppets, and very little human dialogue, the story is set amidst an American family farm. The chick is met by a feisty old rooster, a wobbly calf learning to walk, a gaggle of dancing chicks, a lamb, and a noisy nest of baby birds.
