Cowan Center Event
Saturday, January 30
Massey Theater, Greenwich Academy
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.
Please join us for Jim West Puppet Productions' Aesop’s Fables in an hour long show recommended for children up to 4th grade.
Presented by the E. Kay Cowan Center, a preschool and childcare program whose primary mission is to serve the children of Greenwich Academy faculty and staff.
