  NATURE THEATRE  
Foster founded Nature Theatre in 1993. Since then, he has earned an enthusiastic following of youngsters and families who enjoy his live performances at Cleveland Metroparks locations or at area libraries, schools and festivals. His scope reaches throughout the nation, appearing at folk festivals, nature centers, national parks and other events throughout the United States.

In any case, feel free to contact us with your questions, comments and requests. We hope you find what you're looking for.
  Educating Through Song & Story  
Nature Theatre is the stage for Foster Brown, renowned singer, songwriter and storyteller. He brings his original brand of edu-tainment to audiences throughout the Midwest and beyond. He weaves storytelling within and between his songs to create a memorable mosaic of educational fun.
  Foster's Approach  
By sharing natural and cultural history through the arts, Foster imparts valuable information with self-created educational characters, storytelling, folk songs and original music. His discography includes four recordings of children's nature songs, two local-history song collections about the Cleveland Metroparks and the Ohio & Erie Canal, plus a folk music autobiography about his rural Indiana upbringing.
  Taking Notice  
One of Foster's recordings, 'Naturally,' was a winner of the 2004 Parents’ Choice Recommended Award. In 2005, he was honored with the National Association for Interpretation Regional and National Master Front-Line Interpreter Awards. Foster released another children’s CD in June 2006: 'Songs From a Naturalist’s Notebook.' This recording has also earned a 2006 Parents' Choice 'Recommended' Award. All of these national awards speak to the growing impact of Foster's music.
