Stories from Aesop, the Grimm Bros, and HC Andersen get teased and tweaked to great comic effect. Now available in two versions!

Done in the tradition of Chicago-improv, the all-female cast puts these stories through the contemporary wringer, and finds every laugh in these truly wacky tales - along with the tried and true morals of the stories. Stories include JACK AND THE BEANSTALK, THE MILKMAID AND HER PAIL, and THE TORTOISE AND THE HARE, among others.

We now have both "older" and "younger" versions of the show! If you book the older version, we swap out some simpler stories for a brand new version of CINDERELLA that blends the German, French and Chinese versions of the story into one multi-cultural goulash of fun. There's a talking fish instead of a Fairy Godmother. Yes. Really. But the really interesting thing about the Chinese version is that it ends up being a story about a girl who swears to keep her word at any price, and not about waiting for a handsome prince to save the day - a story that begs for post-show discussion with your students much more than the traditional European version.

This is a great all-ages show, perfect for K-8 schools, family events, libraries and civic centers. Call us today to book for your special occasion!
