Metro Theater Company’s production of "Tomato Plant Girl"
During this family-friendly production, a newcomer, Little Girl, is befriended by a bossy, beguiling best friend who teaches Little Girl how to fit in her new environment. Their ritual games are fun, but it’s clear that Little Girl has no voice in the rules of engagement. Gardening is where Little Girl excels. When Bossy Best Friend discovers that her tomato plant has died, she persuades Little Girl to reluctantly give up her own, thriving plant. But Little Girl has a change of heart and attempts to save her plant, even though she knows her friend will be upset. As she pulls up the tender shoots, she uproots a messy girl creature who eats dirt, drinks rain and has no idea what it means to fit in. All the rules change with this extraordinary event. You are invited to stay after the play for a free interactive family fun event. Plant your own seed, send a note to your “Bossy Best Friend,” mix up a tasty “dirt” snack and more. 3 p.m. Ages 4 and up. All tickets are $10. Clayton High School’s Mainstage Auditorium.
