Please join us for our brand-new musical adaptation of the classic fables of Greek storyteller Aesop. Featuring the world-famous story of the Hare and the Tortoise, it weaves together five more brilliant stories, complete with toe-tapping songs
“Hi there! I’m Aesop, storyteller extraordinaire. Welcome to my island paradise!…well, it would be paradise, except the animals who live here are always up to mischief.. Luckily they’ve inspired the timeless tales I’m so well known for – some you’ll know The Hare and the Tortoise, and The Boy Who Cried Wolf, and some lesser known gems you might not – The Sun and the Wind and the Crow and the Cheese – These captivating stories have something to teach us all, so come along and discover them for yourselves!”
Expect the usual Spontaneous Productions magic, lots of surprises, audience participation, madcap chases and spectacular costumes by Jackie Poulett. Our fabulous cast features Jyo Miarkali, most recently seen as the title role in Aladdin, plus newcomers Stuart Ash as The Tortoise, Marlon-Oliver Harris as The Hare and Monica Nash as The Fox. Olayinka Sobitan-Solomon, choreographer on Rapunzel and The Blues Brothers Grimm, returns to the team, staging the musical numbers and making her acting debut with us as Aesop herself!
