April 19, 2017 (San Diego) -- Husband and wife musical duo Jon and Sabine Sherman will be presenting the world premiere of their eco-folk musical play “Dryad: an Eco-Folk Musical in One Magical Act” at the beautiful Mission Trails Regional Park Amphitheater on Earth Day, Saturday, April 22 at 3:00 p.m.

With eight original, tree-friendly songs, the story tells of a dryad, the spirit of an oak tree, inspiring a man, through music and the magic of nature, to help save her forest. Although intended as a family-friendly show, the play is not written as children's theater. Rather, with its enchanting ecological insights, “Dryad” hopes to appeal to the heart and mind of everyone who loves nature.

With only a guitar and their self-made branch flutes as instrumental back-up for their songs, the Shermans, in combining the simplicity of their eco-folk music style with the heart opening potential of musical theater, hope to inspire a renewed love for the uniquely beautiful bioregion of Southern California. A love that can guide us toward a gentler, sustainable way of living, in harmony and in creative expression with the web of life.

Admission is free. Bring a cushion for the amphitheater seating. Should it rain, the play will be held inside the auditorium. Location: Mission Trails Regional Park, 1 Father Junipero Serra Tr., San Diego, CA 92119 Phone: (619) 668-3281. For more information on the park, you can visit
