Carroll College Theatre Producing COVID- and Kid-Friendly Production of Fable Me This, Aesop!

HELENA – Carroll College Theatre opens Fable Me This, Aesop! in the Carroll College FLEX Theatre, April 15. The show runs April 15-18 and April 22-25 both in person and over livestream.

This year's “Theatre For Young Audiences” show is Fable Me This, Aesop! Based on some of Aesop's fables, the show has been adapted and devised by Carroll College alumni and students. The show focuses on a group of kids from fighting families who meet in the woods by accident and decide to rewrite their story. Using Aesop's fables, the kids weave stories about community, and the importance of standing together.

Audience members, who all get front row seats, will be socially distanced with their pod/family group. Mask wearing is required for all actors, staff, crew and audience members.

For those who prefer to stay home, a customized livestream is also available. Carroll Theatre techs and camera fairies will follow the characters as the story evolves, providing a multi-camera, immersive experience for those at home.
