Three Rivers Park District and TigerLion Arts are combining forces this fall to present an outdoor walking play "Nature" at Eastman Nature Cente at Elm Creek Park Reserve

During the performance, audience members walk from scene to scene to experience the play in various outdoor, natural surroundings. 

The play includes an ensemble of actors and musicians to bring to life scenes filled with song and story.  

Performances are: 

5-6:30 p.m Friday, Sept. 30

1-2:30 p.m. or 5-6:30 p.m Saturday, Oct. 1 

1-2:30 p.m. Sunday, Oct. 2

The cost is $20 per ticket or $5 for children under 10. Tickets are available online here:

The story is an original work collaboratively created and performed by Tyson Forbes, a direct descendant of Ralph Waldo Emerson, and directed by Markell Kiefer, according to Three Rivers Park District.

 "The play explores humankind’s relationship to nature through the eyes of two of America’s great environmental voices, Ralph Waldo Emerson and Henry David Thoreau," according to Three Rivers Park District.  

Picnic lunches can be ordered for $12 up to the day prior of the performance. Beverages, including craft beer from Omni Brewing, and additional food items will be available onsite for purchase prior to the performance. During pre-show choral arrangements performed by local community members, attendees can also bring picnic meals to enjoy. 

During the performance, audience members will be walking short distances outside between four different locations. Comfortable walking shoes are recommended along with weather appropriate dress. Attendees may also bring portable chairs and blankets, if desired.
