About this show

It's a magic day for Tina Talkington and her animals! Tina cast a magic spell to make her stuffed animals talk! Owl, Fox and Beaver spring to life, while Tina turns herself into a Dolphin up a tree! How will the animals learn to work together and get Dolphin out of the tree? Owl sings "fly." Fox sings "learn to walk." Beaver is busy building a bathtub. In this hilarious and interactive combination of comedy, songs, slapstick and drama, the different animals learn how to co-operate to save Dolphin. A Dolphin Up a Tree! is written by Kimberly Foster, directed by Paul Urcioli, and features music by John Fleming. It is lightly based on the Myers-Briggs theory of personality types and Howard Gardner's theory of Multiple Intelligences. The play is adapted from Ms. Foster's beautifully-illustrated children's book, A Dolphin Up a Tree! The Tale of a Fish Out of Water. Kids yell out answers to help the animals and Tina learn to understand their differences--even appreciate them!
