TOURING SEASON 2017 

AESOP'S FABLES- LES FABLES DE LA FONTAINE

ON TOUR APRIL 18 - MAY 26 2017
 The wind has not taken the coat off the man , the country mouse is still living in the country and the tortoise keeps winning the race against the hare. Many fables told in a variety of mediums with hand puppets, shadow puppets and some very skillful storytelling are woven together with a witty combination of history lesson and   show stopping entertainment.  Students will hear both familiar and not so familiar fables by world famous Aesop.    

SUITABLE FOR K - 4   
Available in English, French and Bilingual

FABLES DE LA FONTAINE

Le vent n’a pas emporté le manteau de l’homme, le rat des champs vit toujours à la campagne, et la tortue bat toujours le lièvre à la course. Nous vous invitons à redécouvrir ces fables et une foule d’autres, auxquelles nos talentueux conteurs donnent vie au moyen de marionnettes et du théâtre d’ombres, entre autres médias. C’est un rendez-vous au carrefour de la morale et du divertissement, dans l’univers des fables classiques — et parfois moins connues — de Jean de La Fontaine.

TOURING SHOWS 2017-18

  NOVEMBER 2017 

 

Charlie Mobile and the Window to the World

ON TOUR: NOVEMBER 5 - DECEMBER 3 2017

Charlie was your average kid living an average life. That is, until birthday number 10 rolled around. Charlie's parents had an extra special gift to make it a birthday to remember - Charlie's very first cell phone. Every kid's dream, right? But with great power comes great responsibility. With the world in the palm of Charlie's hand, we explore how technology, maturity, and responsibility intersect through the eyes of the modern day 10 year old.

THIS SHOW IS OFFERED IN ENGLISH AND BILINGUAL (1/2 ENGLISH AND 1/2 FRENCH)

SUITABLE FOR GRADES 2 - 6
