Here is the comment about the show from the producer, Pamela Furnace: "The swingset concept was that of our director, Jennifer Webb. The cast started the show dressed as adults, in trenchcoats, for Babble, then "discovered" the swingset and let their inner children out to explore and develop the community of the show. Rather than using clown makeup, they each had a toy that Stephen/Jesus gave them from a big trunk. Each actor brought in a toy that had special meaning for them and they explored that in character development and incorporated play with that toy into the action of the show.

At the end, they each returned the toy to Stephen as they said goodbye during On the Willows. It was very moving for cast and audience alike."
