A brand new show about Johnny and other apple heroes!

Eulenspiegel Puppets performs a brand new story about Johnny Appleseed's true adventures and his relationships with the settlers, the Native Americans, and the animals and plants around him. The story goes on to tell about  other apple heroes, including Henderson Luelling, who traveled across the US from Iowa, across the Rocky Mountains to Oregon, with a wagon loaded with 300 growing apple trees! Johnny, Henderson, and the others battle the wilds and weather and meet creatures of all kinds in this exciting show! Watch hand puppets, tabletop puppets, and pop-ups and enjoy the whimsical live music of Ron Hillis!
