Classic Tales Told in Fabulous Fashion


Travel back to Ancient Greece with Aesop as the legendary storyteller shares some of the fables that made him famous – and fantabulous! Aesop and his puppet sidekick, Cecil the Lion, present three classic tales that are as full of laughs as they are of lessons: The Lion and the Mouse, The Boy Who Cried Wolf, and The Tortoise & the Hare. The audience is encouraged to engage with Aesop in these essential messages of kindness, truthfulness, and determination.

Jeffery Zwartjes, Digital Learning Creative Lead at the Center for Puppetry Arts, will introduce and perform the show and then participate in an interactive Q&A immediately following the performance.
