Milford High School Drama Club to perform ‘Aesop’s Foibles’

The students of Milford High School’s Drama Club are preparing to present “Aesop’s Foibles,” a play that combines several well-known references to “Aesop’s Fables” in a humorous way that is relatable to modern viewers, according to Producer and English Teacher Erica Snyder.

The classics are there — “The Tortoise and the Hare,” “The Boy Who Cried Wolf,” “The Goose Who Laid the Golden Eggs,” “The Ant and the Grasshopper,” and more in a new and hilarious format.

Director and English Teacher Carissa Meiklejohn wanted to do a show that appeals to younger audiences this fall because the upcoming spring musical will be more appropriate for older students and adults.

She said, “While this is a show directed toward our younger audience members, it contains a lot of humor that will be enjoyed by all ages.” 

At just 70-minutes long, it could be the perfect theater experience for the whole family. 

Ms. Meiklejohn added, “The students are having a blast rehearsing this very funny show.”

Student performers include Mary Jocelyn Argo, Jacob Elliot, Jakob Faulkner, Jesus Gomez, Anna Hatfield, Alexandria Herber, Abby Lincoln, Danae Martinez, Shannon Onusko, Mystery Parsons-Villa, Ethan Reynolds, Sarah Stevenson, Bridget Ireland Stump, Teana Sturgis, Zach Stutzman, Amiere Sudler, Haley Thompson, Paige Thompson, Mariah Todd, Isabella Tyrell and Rebecca Wisniewski.

Two public performances will be held in the Milford High School Auditorium: Friday, Nov. 22 at 7 p.m. and Saturday, Nov. 23 at 1 p.m.  Tickets for both performances will be available at the door for $5 for spectators 2-18 years old or 60 or older. Others may purchase tickets for $7 each.
