Wishtree

We are thrilled to collaborate with the State College Area High School Thespians for the world premiere of our adaptation of Wishtree by Katherine Applegate.

Wishtree is a heartwarming story about community and friendship and we hope you will join us as the talented

State High Thespians bring it to life on the stage (with puppets!)

Peace

                      Here's What Katherine Applegate had to say about our script:

 

"Dear Kathleen and Adam:

 

I just read your script for Wishtree and I was completely blown away! I loved the moments of humorous dialogue you added (and wish I’d thought of them). Somehow you managed to take a lot of moving parts and turn them into a seamless play.

 

I’ve had more than a few people (usually adults) tell me that they cry when they reach the “STAY” scene, but this time it was my turn. Your idea to include audience members in that moment is absolutely brilliant. Thank you for thinking of it.

 

I very much hope I can catch a performance (I live in California, so that may prove difficult.) But please know I’ll be there in spirit, applauding my heart out.

All my best,

Katherine"
