Aesops Theatre

PLAYHOUSE DISNEY – Monday 2 February, 1.15pm

“Aesop’s Theatre,” a new series for preschoolers, will debut exclusively on Playhouse Disney Australia and New Zealand on MONDAY, 2 FEBRUARY (11:15am AEDT and 1:15pm NZDT).

Aesop is a friendly wolf who happens to be the leader of a travelling theatre group. Aesop writes and directs the plays, which are performed as they travel from town to town.  Among the members of his drama company are a would-be writer fox called Presy, some mischievous pigs and a tough little rabbit called Libbit.  At first, they do not always get along that well, since they have to live together in a cramped carriage. However, while spending time working together in the theatre, they get to know and understand each other.

To a new audience, these will be funny new adventures in an enchanting visual world.  Others may recognise tales that have been told for over 2000 years and are attributed to another Aesop.
