Journey to the far-off Galapagos Islands and meet George - a giant Galapagos Tortoise and the last of his kind. Watch George grow up in this show brimming with creatures: sea turtles, lizards, hungry goats, sea lions, and even dancing blue-footed birdies. Watch out for the pirates, though! In this uplifting eco-fable, solo puppeteer Heidi Rugg shares the true story of this famous, not-so-little tortoise and the islands he calls "home."
