A brand new show about Johnny and other apple heroes!

Eulenspiegel Puppets performs an exciting story about Johnny Appleseed's true adventures and his relationships with the settlers, the Native Americans, and the animals and plants around him. Watch him make friends with a wolf, rescue a starving horse, and make a home in a hollow tree stump

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 rousing show! Watch hand puppets, tabletop puppets, and pop-ups and enjoy whimsical music composed by Ron Hillis and performed live by Alex Flesher!
