"FOUR STARS - Absolutely charming new interpretation of the Hare-Tortoise race... A treat for everyone, adults as well as kids."  –Around the Town Chicago
"Fable-ous! is fabulous... A family-friendly, fun-loving, heart-warming adventure."  –

Harrington T. Jordan was the fastest (and most famous) Hare that ever lived Ė so how did he end up losing his race against the Tortoise? The true story starts with a wager with a devious Mouse and ends in a madcap dash through the wilds of Lion Country with a fortune in endorsements and merchandising on the line. But the fix is in, and a simple footrace soon becomes something much more complicated (and silly) as traps and predators lie in wait around every corner. Forget what you think you know about the Tortoise and the Hare and take the time to make some new friends in a world premiere comedy that turns the world of Aesopís fables on its ear.

Recommended for kids 5 and up. Children under 2 are not permitted.
