Orangeville: Theatre Orangeville presents the world premiere of Norm Foster’s “They’re Found in Trees”

Friday, October 7, 2022

Theatre Orangeville presents the world premiere of Theyre Found in Trees by Norm Foster October 12-30.

They’re Found in Trees is a story about three birdwatchers or ‘birders’ as they are commonly referred to. William and Mitchell are two middle-aged men who meet every Saturday morning at Fundy National Park in New Brunswick to engage in their birdwatching passion.

On this particular Saturday, they have advertised in a ‘birder’ magazine, looking for other bird lovers to join their club. The two men figure if they have more members, then they will get a break on the exorbitant $7.50 admission fee to the park.

Enter Paula Bismark. Paula has just split up from her husband and has decided to try ‘birding’ in order to get her mind off of her failed marriage.
