Puppet Show: Aesop’s Fabulous Fables
November 19, 2016 @ 10:30 am - 11:00 am$5
Join us in Cupid’s Park Theatre to take a trip back to Ancient Greece! This puppet show is a collection of 5 short stories, written by Aesop, that each teach a lesson.
Aesop’s Fabulous Fables is a gift from Old Salem Museums and Gardens. It is a particularly fitting show, as local children used to perform these stories as part of the 1897 Juvenile Lyceum. The Lyceum performed in Cupid’s Park Theater, the top level of Körner’s Folly. Cupid’s Park Theater is believed to be the oldest private theater in America.
Seating for the Puppet Shows is limited and advanced reservations for the shows are recommended. This puppet show is geared toward ages 5 – 13 years old, but visitors of all ages are welcome to enjoy it!
Körner’s Folly, historic house museum, will be open for self-guided tours on Saturday, November 19 from 10am – 4pm. Scavenger hunts, activities, and puppet shows are a great way for children and grandchildren to experience the historic house.
Advanced Ticket sales are now CLOSED. Some tickets are still available. On Saturday, November 19, you may purchase tickets upon arrival in the gift shop, while tickets are still available.
