Aesop’s Dinosaur Fable is a mammoth musical featuring nine-foot-tall, dancing, glow-in-the-dark puppets, live actress wee TryANTasaurus, and animated puppet projections. Based on “The Ant and the Grasshopper,” the Farmer Ant’s Almanac predicts an ICE STORM blowing their way. Soon it’s going to snow and snow and snow. Stage magic and imagination transform the classic story into a musical fable for today.
Actress and puppet builder Holli Rubin performs as wee TryANTasaurus, hardest worker in the forest. Puppeteer and lyricist Jerry Bickel performs as the happy-footed giant green dinosaur.
The musical was inspired by the theater troupe’s cultural exchange projects in Trinidad. Cool classic Greek and hot Island motifs mix in the music, dance and design of the show. Audiences in Japan, Czech Republic, Taiwan and the US have laughed, clapped and shared a whole lava love for Aesop’s Dinosaur Fable.
