Apple Pip is an environmental show designed for 3-6 year-olds based around an apple tree.
The story tells the life of an old tree throughout the year and the four seasons.
From spring blossom and summer fruiting to autumn harvest and leaf-fall, Pip sings as she swings from the branches of an old apple tree. Once, it produced the tastiest apples in the orchard, but now it is neglected and all kinds of animals try to steal the last remaining fruit.
Mrs. Crabbe, the grumpy owner, plans to chop it down, but Pip loves the tree and wants to save it. With the help of the audience she must find a way to make Mrs. Crabbe change her mind.
Apple Pip ia a 30-minute show with puppets, storytelling, songs, original music and a taste of apples. It is followed by a 30-minute drama workshop.
There is also an illustrated children's book based on the show.
