Although our Hill stage is dark, the moon and stars continue to shine. And our woods still have stories to tell. “If These Trees Could Talk,” is an immersive, auditory experience. You’ll follow the paths around APT’s glorious property on a self-guided tour, as you listen to recorded poetry, stories and recollections read by APT’s core company and other talented artists. The route will take you on a walk around the grounds, with a finale in the Hill Theatre. 

We have been blessed to call this place an artistic home for the past 40 years, and it's time to acknowledge what this land has seen and learned before we began treading her paths. And it's time for a new set of stories to join those that have long been told on our stages. To that end, we have created this unique and exquisite experience with poets who give their words as gifts back to the land. Our project honors the Indigenous voices of this land, joined in conversation with a community of poets, as we un-pack the complicated legacy of the ground we stand on.

So collect a few friends and picnic under the autumn sky. Take a walk on these beloved paths. Break your routine and escape reality for a few hours. Revisit favorite APT memories, and create new ones, as we honor and acknowledge the history of the land, and what she has given us.
