Aesop's Fables by I Theatre - GIVEAWAY!

Aesop's Fables or the Aesopica is a collection of fables credited to Aesop, a slave and story-teller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BCE. (source). Like many, our home library, especially during Dumpling’s younger days, was brimming with books on these fables and we also homeschooled on them. From Ant and the Grasshopper to Lion and the Mouse, there were always valuable lessons to be learnt from each story.

I Theatre is certainly no stranger to the local arts scene having produced many children’s theatrical productions over the years which Dumpling and I had the chance to watch. Till now, she still recalls plays such as “The Enormous Turnip”, “The Little Red Hen” and “Magic Porridge Pot” where the plays were interactive and the songs, catchy.

In its first production for this year, I Theatre is bringing to us about 8 stories from Aesop Fables in a 50min production which includes the lesser known fables such as “The Jay And The Peacock?” and Androcles And The Lion”.

The play promises an impressive line-up of actors from I Theatre’s previous productions such as Ant and The Grasshopper, Grimm’s Fairytales and Puss in Boots using marvellous masks, puppetry, live action and songs!

I am pleased to share that I have 2 pairs of 2 tickets worth more than $120 to give away!

  1. A Boy Who Cried Wolf. I've been reading this book to all my 4 children because of the moral at the end of the story. Always remind them that how liars are rewarded in the end if they tell lies.

  2. Many thanks for organizing this. Many of the Aesop Fables are nice, and most importantly they teach something. To name one favourite would be The Crow and the Pitcher. Love the moral of thinking for a solution to resolve the problem rather than just giving up.


  3. The Ant and the Grasshopper -
    There is a time for work and a time for play, don't we all need that balance :)

    We Love The Lion and the Mouse. The story teaches Being mercy does bring its reward. Being small does not mean it cannot help a greater. a Great story that sometimes we act out !

  28. ant and the grasshopper because it teaches young and old we cannot rest on our laurel and not plan for the future!

  29. My Favourite Aesop Fable is The Tortoise and the Hare because from here we learnt that a slow and steady person will win the race, but at least must do our best and don't give up so easily.
    Nothing is impossible.
