School-Day Show: TheatreworksUSA in Aesop's Fables
In Aesop's Fables (Jim West Productions), delightful tales of wit and wisdom—including "The Stag at the Pool," "The Tortoise and the Hare," "The Fox and the Grapes," "The Wind and the Sun," and "The Lion and the Mouse"—come to life through the large and colorful puppets of nationally-acclaimed puppeteer and storyteller Jim West.
We also meet Aesop himself, in his Greek toga, with his dog Moral by his side. Other beloved characters, ingeniously created from paper bags, newspaper and cardboard boxes, make their appearance to the enchanting music of Scarlatti, Beethoven, Rossini and Chopin, inspiring the child in all of us.
Recommended for grades K-4.
