AESOP'S FOIBLES

Genre: Comedy, Kids, Musical
by Aaron Michael Zook

In the enchanted Forest of Fables, it seems everyone learns their lessons the hard way. An unlikely pair of friends, Fox and Donkey, search the land for an elusive "happy ending" amidst a cast of bumbling humans, snooty scavengers, and terrified bunnies. Along the way, the heroes learn about trust, friendship, and the secret of enduring happiness through song, antic wordplay, and big-band swing.
