WHERE DOES YOUR FOOD COME FROM? NACL Theatre
explores this question with an all-ages musical extravaganza about FARMING,
FOOD, and the ENVIRONMENT. From the inception of the solar system, to sunset on
Millicent’s farm, the Magnificent MacDonald Twins give audiences a whirlwind
tour of “The Greatest Show on Dirt!”
THE LITTLE FARM SHOW kicks up some dirt with live
music, and high-spirited performances. The play navigates through the history of
agriculture from 10,000 BCE to today, exploring sustainability, local food
systems, and organic farming. Steeped in history, philosophy, and a wheel
barrow-full of information, THE LITTLE FARM SHOW will not only entertain, but
will ask people to consider their food choices and the effect those decisions
have on their bodies, the environment, and society.
…a tour of cosmic and earth
history, as well as the cultural evolution of ecological awareness and
sustainable food production (phew!) all in the space of 55 entertaining minutes
of song, humor, and incredible acting.

Inspired by her own life in the Catskills, and
driven by the desire to see our nation return to sustainability, Kowalchuk has
made the concept of farm living highly palatable and accessible.
