Jim West's Aesop's Fables

Mar 14 - Mar 16
$10 - $10

Aesop’s delightful fables of wit and wisdom, including The Stag at the Pool, The Tortoise and the Hare, The Fox and the Grapes, The Wind and the Sun and The Lion and the Mouse come to life through the large and colorful puppets of nationally acclaimed puppeteer and storyteller Jim West. We also meet Aesop himself, in his Greek toga, with his dog Moral by his side. Other beloved characters, ingeniously created from paper bags, newspaper and cardboard boxes, make their appearance to the enchanting music of Scarlatti, Beethoven, Rossini and Chopin, inspiring the child in all of us.

Originator Jim West graduated with a degree in drama and continued his studies in New York’s Herbert Berghof Studio and Parsons School Of Design. He developed and performed the shadow puppets for the Metropolitan Opera, appeared on “Mister Rogers’ Neighborhood” and worked with award winning puppeteer Marshall Izen. His friendly and thought-provoking inspirations carry on!
