This is a student production at West Cape May Elementary School, 301 Moore Street in West Cape May, under the direction of East Lynne Theater Company's artistic director Gayle Stahlhuth. The in-school residency begins on March 8 with a few acting exercises, reading the script, and everyone writing down what three parts they would like to play. The next day, based on the above information, Stahlhuth assigns roles and rehearsals begin. There are only seven eighty-minute rehearsals before the show goes up, with lines learned, blocking complete, props in place and costumes finished. Fables include “The Birds and the Beast,” “The Ants and the Grasshopper,” and “The Tortoise and Hare.” Admission is FREE. Funding is through NJTA's "Stages Festival."
