Bellevue Society for the Arts welcomes Bellevue’s own Juliet Russell as the director of our Children’s Theatre program for 2018.
Juliet will be directing the comedy, AESOP, COME BACK! by Joshua Mikel.
In an attempt to prove that Aesop was history’s greatest fabulist, a group of storytellers cracks the spine of a massive edition of Aesop’s Fables, releasing the old man’s most memorable characters into the theater. The Tortoise, the Hare, the Hart, the Vines, the Simpletons, the Fox, the Lion, the Mouse, and a certain golden egg-laying Goose all take the stage, delightfully re-imagined; the Tellers alternate between narrating and joining the action. Bristling with comic energy, this play caters to a large cast and is perfect for audiences of all ages.
Sponsored by Bellevue Kiwanis, and Bellevue Lions Club, open auditions will be held June 18 and 19. Performances will be August 10–12.
AESOP, COME BACK! is presented by special arrangement with Playscripts, Inc.
Bellevue Society for the Arts’ Children’s Theatre is open to all children ages 7–12 in any school system.
