Based on the very famous Aesop’s Fable, “The Ant & The Grasshopper” is a bright, breezy musical for the whole family that’s fast-paced and interactive, with colourful characters, puppets and tuneful, catchy songs. Returning after a sell-out run in 2014, the play comes with unexpected twists and turns to keep even the grownups engaged, involved and on their toes!
The story revolves around a hard-working and ever-busy Ant who never seemed to have time for play or relaxation. And then there was Grasshopper, with time on his hands and nothing to do all day.
Ant would work hard, without stop or rest, collecting grains of wheat and storing them carefully in her larder. Grasshopper would always laugh and say, “Why waste the sunshine in labour and toil?”
But summer does not last long, and soon winter and the frozen cold will come…
“The Ant & The Grasshopper” will explore key themes of friendship, rewards for hard work, how to use your time wisely, balancing the arts, leisure and work, generosity and judging others.
