Event Notes


It's my box. And my key.

Aesop’s Fables and The Iliad, The Odyssey, and All of Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less in one exciting performance.

Aesop’s Fables includes four best loved fables...The Fox and the Crow, The Hare and the Tortoise, The Donkey In the Lion’s Skin, and finally, The Fox and the Sour Grapes. All are delightfully created in this storyteller’s theatre. As the various actors become main characters in each fable, the audience is brought into the action of the play by seeing the change from actor to character and back to actor again. Thoughtful fun for all ages. Performed by our Youth Studio Factory campers.

Get a guided tour through The Iliad, The Odyssey, and All of Greek Mythology in 99 Minutes or Less with a clock ticking in front of everyone's eyes. It's funny, updated and made easy to understand. Gods come and go, mankind is created, Pandora gets a wedding gift, Helen of Troy, Achilles, Agamemnon, and Odysseus love, fight and wander their way through The Iliad and The Odyssey. All the silly decisions, the absurd destinies, and the goofy characters are presented lightning-bolt fast with hysterical results as the clock is stopped with only seconds to spare. Performed by our Teen Studio Factory campers.
