Classic Tales Told in Fabulous Fashion


Set in Ancient Greece, Aesop’s Fantastical Fables! is the story of Aesop, a servant, and his sidekick Cecil the Lion. Using puppets, Aesop and Cecil share some of the stories that made the servant famous for his fables. The performance includes three classic tales, The Lion and the Mouse, The Boy who cried Wolf and The Tortoise and the Hare.
