In their Sunday best, the second grade visited world-renown Mechanics Hall in Worcester for a production of Aesop’s Fables, performed by Theatre Works USA. The boys and girls saw a wonderful puppet presentation of various Aesop’s Fabels including The Stag at the Pool, The Tortoise and the Hare, The Fox and the Grapes, The Wind and the Sun, and The Lion and the Mouse.
All the puppets used in the production were made from recycled household items such as paper bags, paper towel rolls, and newspaper. Students also listened to the enchanting music of Scarlatti, Beethoven, Rossini and Chopin, inspiring the child in all of us.
This production was extremely well done and age appropriate. A special thanks to our parent volunteers, who assisted throughout this special day.
