Four seriously silly stories told in four different styles of puppetry.
Foolish Tales is a wonderful celebration of our shared humanity through laughter and learning. Each of these folk tales pokes fun at common human foibles: how we overlook the obvious, how we worry needlessly about the impossible, how we sometimes take advice without thinking or use yesterday’s solutions to solve today’s problems.
A production which inspires role play and encourages critical thinking, this play is staged primarily with common household objects to facilitate easy follow up activities.
Excellent presentation; fun was had by the students and teachers. We would have them back again, and recommend to other schools. Principal, Children’s Garden School
