Showagon

I work at a couple of different libraries as part of my job. Wednesday, we were happy to host a visit from Showagon, a group of players from Theatre Memphis. I'm always happy to see them coming, they always put on a top-quality program. This year, they did 4 fables from Aesop. I had slightly younger kids this time, and they adapted it to their level really well.

Here is the lion that got caught in the trap and freed by the little mouse:



This one is from the Boy Who Cried Wolf:



The ants that worked hard all summer and the grasshopper who only wanted to sing and play and dance:



They also do some literacy activities - here they were playing a game, matching the fable to the moral:



And just a very short video clip - I didn't want to make a long one because it takes up so much space on the camera card. The little kids really liked the scary lion that got saved by the little mouse - this is the lion roaring:

I just love these Storyteller type groups - every so often we get something like this in the school where I work and the kids take away such special memories - yesterday we had a Maths Magician - how to breathe a new life and excitement into a dreaded subject - what clever people
