A Theatre For Young People Production


Mr. Sills started in New Haven, journeyed to the Mark Taper Forum in Los Angeles, and wound up on Broadway with this group of famous fables from the Grimm Brothers and Aesop. Here you will meet again Henny Penny, the Golden Goose, Venus and the Cat, the Fisherman and His Wife, The Robber Baron, the Bremen Towson Musicians, and other favorites.

Adapted for the stage by Paul Sills, From stories in the Grimm Brother’s Collection and Aesop’s Fables

Historian’s Corner

The summer’s “Theatre For Young People” production had originally been the musical “Hans Christian Anderson,” but the performing rights were withdrawn by the licensing company. As a result, the play “Story Theatre” based on The Brothers Grimm and Aesop Fables was presented in July. “Story Theatre” had many families working together in all aspects of the production.
