DANBURY, CONN. — The Western Connecticut State University Department of Theatre Arts will stage “Aesop’s Falables” by Ed Graczyk in three performances this weekend on its Danbury Midtown campus.

Shows will be at 3 and 7:30 p.m. Saturday, April 26, and at 3 p.m. Sunday, April 27, in the Berkshire Theatre on the university’s Midtown campus, 181 White St.

According to director Sean Harris, the production of “Aesop’s Falables” is a fun, modern take on the classic “Aesop’s Fables,” including “The Tortoise and the Hare,” “The Country Mouse and the City Mouse,” “The Fox and the Grape” and more.

"With the action narrated by Jack in the Box, follow along as Wilfred Wolf turns the fables on their heads while trying to prove that he was mislabeled as a villain," according to a press release. "This family-friendly production will provide plenty of laughs."

The cast comprises Alex Allyn, of Trumbull; Michael Battista, of North Haven; Jennifer Bavone, of Oakville; Lauren Bell, of Southbury; David Fejes, of New Fairfield; Eric Gomez, of Prospect; Zaiah Hill, of Waterbury; Kera Lalli, of Stamford; Kate Morris, of New Fairfield; Kayla Murphy, of Brookfield; Alexandra Olynik, of East Haven; Connor Thompson, of Ledyard; and Manuel Torres, of West Haven.

Tickets will be $15 for general admission and $10 for senior citizens and non-WCSU students with I.D. WCSU students with a valid I.D will be admitted free.
