2 Who is Aesop? Aesop was a slave and story teller believed to have lived in ancient Greece between 620 and 560 BC. He is credited with wri ng the Aesopica, a collec ons of stories and fables. What is a Fable? A short story, typically with animals as characters, conveying a moral. What is a Moral? A lesson, concerning what is right or wrong, that can be derived from a story or an experience.

3 The Milkmaid and Her Pail A Milkmaid had been out to milk the cows and was returning from the field with the shining milk pail balanced nicely on her head. As she walked along, her pre y head was busy with plans for the days to come. "This good, rich milk," she mused, "will give me plenty of cream to churn. The bu er I make I will take to market, and with the money I get for it I will buy a lot of eggs for hatching. How nice it will be when they are all hatched and the yard is full of fine young chicks. Then when May day comes, I will sell them, and with the money I'll buy a lovely new dress to wear to the fair. All the young men will look at me. They will come and try to woo me, but I shall very quickly send them about their business!" As she thought of how she would se le that ma er, she tossed her head scornfully and down fell the pail of milk to the ground. All the milk flowed out, and with it vanished bu er and eggs and chicks and new dress and all the milkmaid's pride. Moral: Do not count your chickens before they are hatched. The Fox and the Crab A Crab one day grew disgusted with the sands in which he lived. He decided to take a stroll to the meadow not far inland. There he would find be er fare than briny water and sand mites. So off he crawled to the meadow. But there a hungry Fox spied him, and in a twinkling, ate him up, both shell and claw. Moral: Be content with your lot

4 The Hare and the Tortoise A Hare was making fun of the Tortoise one day for being so slow. "Do you ever get anywhere?" he asked with a mocking laugh. "Yes," replied the Tortoise, "and I get there sooner than you think. I'll run you a race and prove it." The Hare was much amused at the idea of running a race with the Tortoise, but for the fun of the thing he agreed. So the Fox, who had consented to act as judge, marked the distance and started the runners off. The Hare was soon far out of sight, and to make the Tortoise feel very deeply how ridiculous it was for him to try a race with a Hare, he lay down beside the course to take a nap un l the Tortoise should catch up. The Tortoise meanwhile kept going slowly but steadily, and, a er a me, passed the place where the Hare was sleeping. But the Hare slept on very peacefully; and when at last he did wake up, the Tortoise was near the goal. The Hare now ran his swi est, but he could not overtake the Tortoise in me. Moral: Slow and steady wins the race. The Fox and the Grapes A Fox one day spied a beau ful bunch of ripe grapes hanging from a vine trained along the branches of a tree. The grapes seemed ready to burst with juice, and the Fox's mouth watered as he gazed longingly at them. The bunch hung from a high branch and the Fox had to jump for it. The first me he jumped he missed it by a long way. So he walked off a short distance and took a running leap at it, only to fall short once more. Again and again he tried, but in vain. Now he sat down and looked at the grapes in disgust. "What a fool I am," he said. "Here I am wearing myself out to get a bunch of sour grapes that are not worth gaping for." And off he walked very, very scornfully. Moral: There are many who pretend to despise and beli le that which is beyond their reach.

5 The Fox and the Crow One bright morning as the Fox was following his sharp nose through the wood in search of a bite to eat, he saw a Crow on the limb of a tree overhead. This was by no means the first Crow the Fox had ever seen. What caught his a en on this me and made him stop for a second look, was that the lucky Crow held a bit of cheese in her beak. "No need to search any farther," thought sly Master Fox. "Here is a dainty bite for my breakfast." Up he tro ed to the foot of the tree in which the Crow was si ng, and looking up admiringly, he cried, "Good morning, beau ful creature!" The Crow, her head cocked on one side, watched the Fox suspiciously. But she kept her beak ghtly closed on the cheese and did not return his gree ng. "What a charming creature she is!" said the Fox. "How her feathers shine! What a beau ful form and what splendid wings! Such a wonderful Bird should have a very lovely voice, since everything else about her is so perfect. Could she sing just one song, I know I should hail her Queen of Birds." Listening to these fla ering words, the Crow forgot all her suspicion, and also her breakfast. She wanted very much to be called Queen of Birds. So she opened her beak wide to u er her loudest caw, and down fell the cheese straight into the Fox's open mouth. "Thank you," said Master Fox sweetly, as he walked off. "Though it is cracked, you have a voice sure enough. But where are your wits?" Moral: The fla erer lives at the expense of those who will listen to him.

17 STUDY GUIDE

18 Welcome to the Hawaii Theatre! Here are some tips to help you make the most of your FUN WITH FABLES 2 experience with us in the Theatre PREPARING FOR THE PERFORMANCE BEFORE THE PLAY: Read aloud the five Aesop s Fables you ll be seeing with your class: The Milkmaid and Her Pail, The Fox and the Crab, The Hare and the Tortoise, The Fox and the Grapes, and The Fox and the Crow. You ll find the fables in `Ohi`a Productions Educational Guide. Lead pre-show discussion and activities with your class, If you like, read other Aesop s Fables with your students to give them an even clearer idea of what makes a fable. THE DAY OF THE PLAY: ARRIVING Please arrive minutes before the performance. When you arrive, the ushers will take you to your places. This is a good time to use the restroom and look around at the beautiful Hawaii Theatre. FOOD AND DRINK No food or drink is allowed in the theatre. Lunch bags can be left in the lobby.

19 THEATRE ETIQUETTE The audience s job is to watch, listen, and applaud. Students should not leave their seats except to use the restroom, and must not kick the seats in front of them. Students that disrupt the performance will be asked to leave the theatre and wait in the lobby with a teacher or chaperone. RESTROOMS It s a good idea to use the restroom before the performance.

Restrooms are located on the sides of the hallways on both the first and second floors of the theatre. LEAVING After the performance, please have your students stay quietly in their seats. We play a special Bus Game at the Hawaii Theatre to help make the children s exit safe and orderly.
