Madcap Puppets Presents: Aesop's Classic Fables
Aesop's Classic Fables In the bountiful array of children's literature, no author is better known and respected than the Greek storyteller, Aesop. Using animals as characters, he served up life lessons and morals in a tasty and digestible cupcake of a story. After more than 2,500 years, his insightful truths are still relevant and entertaining in the twenty-first century. In Madcap's production, Aesop recalls three of our best-loved stories re-told by a cast of puppets, and you! Stories include: The Boy Who Cried Wolf, The Lion and the Mouse and The Hare and the Tortoise. www.madcappuppets.comFree to attend. No tickets required. General seating.
