Booking now open for Fred Theatre’s take on Aesop’s Fab Fables, performed live in your school   

Aesop’s Fab Fables is a great introduction to the joy of live theatre, the wonderful world of Aesop, and an interactive experience designed to stimulate creativity.

Fred Theatre has built an excellent reputation with its tours for high schools based on GCSE texts. Now we’re using our expertise to offer this new production to younger audiences.

Here’s what happens…

Our team of three professional actors will travel to your school. Over the course of a day they will work with individual classes, the pupils assisting with creative preparation for the show. This might include creating elements of the set, or writing their own short stories. Once the team has spent approximately half an hour with each class, all classes come together to experience Aesop’s Fab Fables. Performed by the actors, this is a young person-friendly 45 minute show based on three of the classic stories.

We feel this approach works as a great introduction to live theatre as it breaks down the barriers between performers and audience, stimulates creativity, and rewards the pupils who will see the fruits of their labour employed in the show.

 Aesop’s Fab Fables is available for in-school performances throughout the summer term of 2018.

To find out more, simply e-mail Helen in our office,, or call us on 01789 777612. We’ll collect a few details from you and respond with potential dates and a quote.

I look forward to hearing from you, and I welcome any feedback you may have on this production or any of the work we do here at Fred Theatre.
