Thistle Theatre opens its 21st season!  For our first show, we present "Aesop's Fables at various locations throughout the Seattle area.

Aesop, the great fabulist of ancient Greece, presents three of his beloved stories to audiences: The Raven and the Swan, the Lion and the Mouse, and the Tortoise and the Hare

I play Argus, a friend of the Raven's. I also play the mouse (actually a jerboa) and the tortoise.

All voices and songs are performed live by me and fellow puppeteer and Ben Burris. We use  a variety of puppet styles including Japanese Bunraku-style, hand,  and rod puppets to tell and sing this take on these traditional tales.

The script and songs were written by Jean Enticknap and Sue Ennis. Jean also directed this lively production.

This show is recommended for ages 3 and up.
