A lively look at Aesop (July 6-10)

July 6, 2009

Today marked the start of The Meramec Theatre’s free summer production of Bagful of Fables. In fact, there’s a show going on as I type this — daily performances are at 10 a.m. and 1 p.m., with a special evening show tomorrow (July 7) at 7 p.m. The fables in the title are Aesop’s, so you’ll see some familiar ones like “The Tortoise and the Hare” and “The Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing” done in a lively, interactive way that’ll appeal to kids.

The run ends on Friday (July 10) — and with a high in the upper 90s predicted, it sounds like a good day to enjoy an air-conditioned theater! If you come with a group of 10 or more, you’re asked to call two days ahead so arrangements can be made (314.984.7562). Otherwise, you’re welcome to find a seat as much as half an hour before showtime. There’s no grace period for late arrivals; the theater asks that you plan to be in your seats at least 10 minutes before curtain. The theater’s pretty much smack in the middle of the St. Louis Community College-Meramec campus in Kirkwood (click here for a campus map).
