Small Fables

11 Feb 2015

A host of hand-shadow animals assembles for this enchanting collection of little fables. A rabbit is interrupted every time he tries to sing his song; a boy who cries wolf gets his comeuppance…

Inspired by the tales of Aesop and La Fontaine, this magical shadow puppet performance will amaze and delight children and parents alike. Be prepared to giggle and gasp as puppet master Drew Colby creates spellbinding stories using shadows and light, mirror balls and jam jars, live music and song – and his own fingers and thumbs. 

Blending skill, charm and humour, Small Fables is the perfect show for younger audiences.
