The Ant & The Grasshopper
Synopsis
A Classic Fable from Aesop…
Returning after a SELL-OUT run in 2014, this 50 minutes musical is suitable for THE WHOLE FAMILY - ANYONE 3 years old and above!
 
Once there lived a hard-working and ever-busy Ant who never seemed to have time for play or relaxation.
And then there was Grasshopper, with time on his hands and nothing much to do all day. Somehow they were friends.
 All day long Ant would work hard, without stop or rest, collecting grains of wheat and storing them carefully in her larder.
Grasshopper would always laugh, and say. 'Why waste the sunshine in labour and toil?'
But Summer does not last long – and soon Winter and the frozen cold will come…
What will happen to Grasshopper then?
 
A bright, breezy musical for all the family, fast-paced and interactive, with colourful characters, puppets and tuneful, catchy songs. Based on the very famous Aesop’s Fable, but with unexpected twists and turns to keep even the grownups engaged, involved and on their toes!
 
The play will explore key themes of: friendship, rewards for hard work, how to use your time wisely, balancing the arts, leisure and work, generosity and judging others.
 
This is one of those stories you really think you know – until you examine it a little closer. In the original Fable by Aesop, the ants work all day, never taking time to appreciate the world around them. Whilst the Grasshopper does not see the value in working…
In Singapore we like to think that the Ants are the perfect example of what we should be like. But is the Grasshopper completely wrong in his point of view? And are the ants really following the best path in life? There could be something valuable to learn from the Grasshopper, and the other insects you will meet on the way. In our tiny Island nation I am sure we can learn something from this tiny insect world!
