The Adventures of Tortoise and Hare: The Next Gen
Tue Feb 07 2023 at 09:45 am to 10:45 am
The Carolina Theatre | Durham, NC
About this Event
We begin with Aesop’s classic fable “The Tortoise and the Hare” but continue the story which finds them 10 years down the road, now with children of their own and exploring modern-day distractions. Smartphones and video games create a new landscape of lost connections to life experiences. “The Next Gen” features Tortoise Junior and Lil’ Hare in a whole new kind of race, where their adventures lead them into unexpected territory. Old man Tortoise and Big Daddy Hare must come together despite their differences to find and save their children. What hurdles will they have to overcome to make it to the finish line? With dazzling visuals, poignant storytelling, and the creative use of music from classical to pop, this production brings this tale into a brilliant new light.

“Creative Storytelling: Familiar Stories with Twists” Workshop presented by Linda Gorham
Fracturing tales involves taking a well-known fairy or folk tale and changing it in a way that makes it full of surprises – in characterization, plot modification, setting, narration style, point of view, and more. Students work collaboratively to create their own “twisted” familiar story and get show off their writing skills to the class.
