FAMILY NIGHT presents...
SWAZZLE'S TORTOISE AND THE HARE

A hilarious, action-packed re-imagining of the classic Aesop’s Fable. This brand-new puppet show features beautifully handcrafted puppets, imaginative physical comedy, and engaging characters.

Upon losing the famous race to the Tortoise, the Hare challenges her to compete in other sports, including football, baseball, soccer and even ping-pong. Along the way, the Tortoise and the Hare both learn important lessons about good sportsmanship, teamwork, and sharing the fun.
