Animal Fables from Aesop

Regular price $12.00
( / )

A play-within-a-play operetta led by the narration of a goat. We are swept into a peaceable kingdom where the players at a country fair weave together many of Aesop’s enchanting fables. We learn the classic morals of “slow and steady wins the race” and “practice makes perfect” along with the more obscure “shun the quack” and “fancy dress cannot change the body inside” and are rewarded with real life lessons in a fun and exciting setting.

Barbara McClintock, author 
Marisha Chamberlain, playwright
Roberta Carlson, composer

34 pgs. 15 female, 15 male, Doubling possible
Originally produced in CTC’s 1994-95 season

“Forget any mistaken notion that good children’s theater must be inferior to good adult theater. This imaginative weaving together of comic moral tales, song and dance competes at all levels.” -Los Angeles Times
