Aesop’s Fables – Tuckers’ Tales Puppet Theatre

Saturday, February 20, 2021
10:30 AM to 11:15 AM

Aesop, one of the greatest storytellers of the ancient world, had a great sense of humor. And it’s a good thing, because when Tuckers’ Tales tells his stories, they take a few unexpected twists. The Tortoise & The Hare – A hare-raising adventure of Olympic proportions, The Fox & The Crow – The crow’s meal is interrupted by a lesson in the dangers of self-admiration. The Ant & The Grasshopper – Take care before you wind up as a “grass-sickle” in the winter freezer, The Frog & The Ox – Sometimes trying to prove that you are not impressed with immensity may have immense consequences.
