Local nonprofit children’s theater Storytree Theatre launches its newest touring show, Aesop’s Fables, available to schools and libraries to book now through the end of the school year. Through a partnership with What If? Productions, Storytree Theatre is able to present this pop-up performance at libraries and schools, without teachers and organizers having to hustle to organize field trip.
This version of Aesop’s Fables was written by Storytree founder Teralyn Reiter and tells the story of a young Aesop, a boy who can only connect with people through his strange and magical stories. Aesop’s Fables is an interactive performance. Reiter says, “Aesop’s Fables is an experiential theatre piece, which means if you’re in the room, you’re in the show. As a teaching artist, I’ve seen firsthand how involving students in productions and activities allows the information to resonate on a more personal level.”
Schools and libraries can book Storytree throughout the school year, but recommend that you sign up by Oct. 31 to snag a spot. Learn how to get Aesop’s Fables in your school by visiting storytreetheatre.org or calling (843) 830-8737.
