Presented by Simpich Showcase Theatre and Museum at Simpich Showcase, Colorado Springs CO

Mar 08 - 31

The Simpich Showcase Theatre celebrates the Fables of Aesop in a unique amalgamation of over ten of the stories.

Is a bat more “rodent” or “fowl”? From what stagnant source do frogs replicate a leadership strategy? Could an ensnared lion benefit from mouse aid?  Why are foxes such weasels?  

The answers lie beyond the shadows of a crackling forest campfire where an escaped hunchback slave sits and warms himself. 

Embittered by his own “inhumane society,” the man rivets his attention to the ins-and-outs of the Animal Kingdom and slowly gains a unique four-footed perspective on the foibles of humankind. 

The Simpich Showcase Theatre now visits, celebrates and, at times, rethinks the immortal Fables of Aesop in a unique amalgamation of over ten of the stories.

A beastly ensemble of life-sized animal marionettes and hand puppets display for their enslaved observer (and puppeteer) their world of anthropomorphic idiosyncrasies, insights and humor.
