The Sandhill crane migration every year is inspiring to child, adult, artist, and now playwright. The Crane family cast of characters in Phil Bock’s "Love in the Bosque" presents with whimsy the daily plights of our winter residents as they winter in the Rio Grande valley.

With musical numbers "Sandy’s Complaint" sung by Sandy (Hill) Crane, and "Let's Fly Away" by the beautiful and mysterious Japanese crane Michiko, a love triangle takes shape with Bob Crane at the center.

Special appearances from Coyote and Bobcat.

Join local playwright and composer Phil Bock and his musical crane family for two shows.

This show will have you humming along with the visiting cranes. "Love in the Bosque" is one part of many activities at our Return of the Cranes Celebration the weekend Nov. 17 and 18
