Mr. Aesop and his colorful collection of factory parts—including Straucey, the Story Starter; Pluto, the Plot Plotter; Wadsworth, the Word Worker; Gretel, the Grammar Guardian; and others—are back again, with more fables and songs to delight and enchant. This sequel to the original Fabulous Fable Factory finds the group still searching for a permanent moral maker. The 2,000-year-old factory, which moves about in time and space, attempts to return to the spot where it landed 30 years ago and reconnect the ensemble with their first temporary moral maker. Many surprises await them, however, when they encounter a much different world than before, introduced to them by a 12-year-old who accidentally discovers the factory. With five new exciting fables and an equal number of lively songs, this delightful new musical will be enjoyed by all ages, whether or not they are familiar with the original Fable Factory which has had more than 3,000 performances. One interior set. Approximate running time: 60 minutes. Optional accompaniment CD available.
