The 2019 Season is here!

Jabberbox Puppet Theater performs “The POET’S MENAGERIE”

Based on FRED CHAPPELL’S new book of poems, As If It Were, this original puppet drama celebrates the power and hilarity of Aesop’s fables that continue to entertain us with enduring relevance. When are animals most vain and greedy and sly? When they are behaving like humans, of course!  Come enjoy the shenanigans of foxes, wolves, chickens, a crane, a leopard, a lion, a hare, and an ape– all behaving badly! The performance features original music played live by local singer- songwriter, Jim Ritchey.

As part of Greensboro Bound Literary Festival, there will be ONE FREE PERFORMANCE SATURDAY MAY 18, Van Dyke Theater, Greensboro Cultural Arts Center at 10 AM.

Additional performances the weekend of May 24-26 and May 31-June 2 at 301 E. Hendrix Street, Greensboro.  2 PM matinee and 8:30 PM evening performances both of these weekends.
