_THE MIGHTY PRINCE AND OTHER FABULOUS FABLES
Two performers, five stories and a host of bugs, birds, animals and magical creatures!
Open Sky bring to life these two thousand year old stories using a happy mix of rhyme, movement, live music, song and puppetry. And it’s funny too.
Monkey tries to wind up Buffalo. Pigeon saves Ant from disaster. Tortoise’ big mouth leads to a smelly fate. Little Hare scares Deer, Ox, Tiger and Elephant until Lion steps in. And the
Prince is indeed mighty but is he mightier than the Giant?
Based on stories for children told by the Buddha, each fable has a simple moral for young hearts and minds.
An enchanting family show for ages 3+
Available for studio theatres and "unplugged" for Rural Touring and school performances.
