One of the first few Bible verses I learned – and remembered – as a child was from Proverbs 6:6:
“Go to the ant, you sluggard; consider its ways and be wise!”
I remember my teacher sharing the verse during devotion in kindergarten that God wants us to learn from the ants but I never really knew what to learn from them until I heard the famed Aesop fable about hard work and planning for days of necessity. This fable has taught me much as a little girl, and the verse from the Bible is forever cemented in my mind.
I’m glad that I’d be getting the opportunity to tell my kids this tale – because I Theatre‘s first production for 2014 is …
The Ant and the Grasshopper promises to be a bright, breezy musical for the whole family with colourful characters, puppets and tuneful, catchy songs. It’s going to be a fast-paced and interactive production based on the famous Aesop fable with unexpected twists and turns for the little ones aged 3 onwards and all grown-ups alike. The play will explore the key themes of hard work, friendship and generosity, so this is the perfect opportunity to have the little ones learn about these important values in life.
