When Shasta’s father loses his job, she is devastated to learn that previously laid plans for her upcoming birthday party must be significantly downsized. As the story progresses, Shasta and Simon meet a mysterious Traveler who gives them a seed that will make a tree grow leaves of money. Through a truly magical journey, the two ultimately learn that being a loyal friend is worth more than a big party or having all the latest toys. In the end, our friends, family and imaginations are truly our greatest assets.
THE MONEY TREE launched Roseneath’s 2014-15 season, programmed to coincide with Financial Literacy Month (November). This production introduces elementary audiences (Grades K-6) to notions of financial literacy by exploring the idea of ‘needs vs. wants’ and affirming the power of imagination and creativity.
