The Balloon Tree
story by Pheobe Gilman

Leap from reality into this Renaissance inspired fairy tale by beloved Canadian children’s author Pheobe Gilman. Allow your imagination to run free as we follow Princess Leora on a magical adventure through her village in search for the one object that will save them all – a balloon. Up against her evil uncle, the Archduke, and all the guards in the kingdom she cannot make it without the help of the villagers, and of course, the audience! Set off on a magical journey filled with live music, secret passageways, wizards, magic spells, sword fighting and lots and lots of balloons!
