Minnetrista Theatre Preserves brings five of Aesop's most treasured stories to life with bright costumes, quirky characters, singing, and dancing! "The Lion and the Mouse," "The Country Mouse and the City Mouse," "The Fox and the Crane," "The Ant and the Grasshopper," and "The Tortoise and the Hare" will enchant children and adults alike, with lively puppet theatre. The circus comes to town in this colorful performance, bringing shadow puppets, body puppets, rod puppets, and a flea circus to the stage, inviting children to sing along and create shadow puppets of their very own. The 45-minute performance is followed by a 15-minute question and answer session with the actors. No registration is required. This show is adapted and originally directed by Michael Haverty. Music composed and recorded by Dolph Amick. Originally produced by the Center for Puppetry Arts, Atlanta, Georgia. This program will be held in the Program Room and is for families with children ages 2-11.
