The Ants and The Grasshoppers - A Greek Comedy is a hilarious twist on the classic Aesop's fable! When those goof-off grasshoppers arrive in Ancient Greece, the ants discover all the forbidden fun they've been missing, but when Winter arrives, the Queen leaves those good-for-nothing grasshoppers out in the cold and the ants become bored beyond belief and unable to accomplish their precious work!!! Now it's up to Eddie, the Queen's son, to lead a search party to rescue the grasshoppers and save the colony from dying... from boredom! With memorable characters and side-splitting silliness, it is the perfect show for any season!
Also available as a musical!
The Ants and the Grasshoppers first premiered at IMP for Kids on May 20 and 21 2011 in Martha's Vineyard, MA.
