“The Money Tree” Study GuideWhen Shasta’s father loses his job, she is devastated to learn that plans for her upcoming birthday party must be significantly downsized. After Shasta and her friend Simon meet a mysterious Traveler who gives them a seed that will make a tree grow leaves of money, their friendship is put to the test. 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. This production introduces elementary audiences to financial literacy, the idea of “needs vs. wants,” and affirms the power of imagination and creativity.

It was a great performance. It touched upon many aspects of day-to-day things that are happening with our students we sometimes don’t realize.”
—J. KONSTANTOPOULOS, TEACHER
