Red Herring Puppets presents Aesop’s Fables

We weren’t sure what it was going to be like when we saw all of the puppets and the puppeteers, but as soon as the show started we forgot the puppeteers were even there and we were transported into the story. What a great way to introduce the concepts of fable and story in our BASAL book. Well Done!

The performance was completely age appropriate for our students, colorful, and fun. The performers were kind and gracious and handled our location change and squirmy kids beautifully.

The show was great! It was age appropriate for all of our students and they were really engaged during the whole performance. Our teachers also enjoyed the show and many commented how it was the best assembly we have had in a long time.
