Meet Bebe and her Grandpa, who’s a world champion gardener! If you’re ready to learn something new, he’ll teach you how to plant your own fruits and vegetables. But curious Bebe can’t stop wondering what’s in Grandpa’s mysterious shed - and she needs your help to find the key! Join Bebe and her Grandpa as they explore the garden - and their own roots and legacy as African Americans - through song, senses, and stories.

This unique, universal, and upbeat musical celebrating Black history through one family’s story will have EVERY audience member on their feet. Get ready to get your hands dirty, plant your own seeds, and sing along to live music!
