Field Trips


“My students really enjoyed the acting and they were engaged, laughing and enjoying themselves from start to finish. This show did a great job of teaching the concept of fables and the moral or lesson we take away. I highly recommend this production to ALL teachers teaching a fairy tale or fable unit to their class. “ —2nd Grade Teacher, Waters Elementary

“With courage, I will Connect + Collaborate + create In my Community”

Every spring, Raven proudly presents Aesop’s Fables on our mainstage as a field trip opportunity for elementary school classrooms. Our show brings to life six classic fables in an adaptation that includes audience participation, high-energy storytelling and talkbacks with the cast after the show. It is the perfect first audience experience for young students being introduced to live theatre.

ENHANCE YOUR VISIT: Aesop’s Fables in the classroom

We offer an optional add-on of a Pre and/or Post classroom visit by a Raven Teaching Artist or a full 8 class Aesop’s Fables Residency for an additional fee. Guided by one of our experienced Teaching Artists, your students will participate in collaborative theatre activities that will enrich their understanding of the material and give them a chance to think creatively about how to bring these stories to life.
