Aesop’s Fables On Stage
Aesop’s famous fables come to life in this upbeat performance. Tidbits of Aesop’s life and the traditions of Greek Theatre sneak in between such well known tales as The Milkmaid and Her Pail, The Lion and the Mouse, and, of course, The Tortoise and the Hare. Our actors use rap, rhyme, and masks to give these famous fables a modern twist. Students will be entertained as they learn the moral for each tale; morals such as “Don’t count your chickens before they hatch,” “Honesty is the best policy,” and as the wise tortoise says, “That’s one small step for ‘Torty,’ one giant leap for tortoise kind” (better known as “Slow and steady wins the race”).
